I am a multi-award-winning businessman, TEDx and professional speaker and consultant, specialising in Entrepreneurial Leadership. I have over 15 years’ experience of helping my clients develop entrepreneurial talent and cultures within their organisation. This enables them to implement the benefits of diversity and inclusion more effectively, with greater commercial and social impact.

I founded my corporate consultancy Cultiv8 Solutions to help global companies like you, to integrate the next generation of innovative thinking and diverse action into your business, today.  My partnership approach has led to a formidable client base including the BBC,  Essentra PLC, The RBS Group, Aston Business School among many others. I also started my early stage Fintech firm FeeLYX, to help small businesses grow faster using financial data, differently.

I enjoy giving back as the Non-Executive Director of two not-for-profit companies, Chair of a regional Diversity In Tech group, and I advise regional and national business bodies on how to improve business support for ambitious SMEs.

I look forward to working with you! JB, For more info on me, please click here
