Review

"A riveting read - and a welcome reminder of why good role models are important." -- Paul Cuttill, Chief Operating Officer, EDF Energy

I guarantee you won't be able to put it down. -- Personnel Today, April 2006

From the Publisher

"A riveting read - and a welcome reminder of why good role models are important."

Paul Cuttill, Chief Operating Officer, EDF Energy

"Role models raise our aspirations and call us to achieve. This collection of stories is about people who have demonstrated that individuals can make a difference that is meaningful: not just in terms of their own lives, but for business and society as a whole."

Bob Wigley, Chairman, Merrill Lynch - Europe, Middle East and Africa

We all need to be inspired. We all need help to raise our expectations about what we might be and do in life. We all need somebody to show us what is possible, and to encourage us to both aim higher and look deeper in ourselves.

This is a book that aims to do just that, by providing an insight into the lives of a selection of role models – real people from British Minority Ethnic backgrounds who have achieved a great deal in very different walks of life. Some, like actor Colin Salmon are famous. Others, like Karan Bilimoria have started their own hugely successful businesses. Many have contributed to society in very significant ways, by starting a charity, entering politics or rising to a senior position in the police force. What they have in common is that they are all willing to reveal something about themselves that also shows us something about ourselves.

Whether you call yourself Black, White or any shade in between, there is something in this book for you. If it helps you raise your sights, broaden your mind and achieve your dreams, then it will have succeeded.
