Biography

I am the Founder and Director of Entrepreneurs Unlocked CIC. Its vision is to reduce reoffending through entrepreneurship. It provides specialist and focused programmes of learning and support for people who are looking to develop their entrepreneurial talent as an employee, small business owner or self-employed subcontractor and become a positive contributor to society. I was inspired to set this up following my travels to the USA in 2018 to research prison and community entrepreneurship programmes with exceptionally low rates of reoffending. The rate of reoffending from these programmes is less than 10 per cent, compared to 45 per cent in the UK for people released from custody. I am a Member of the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs (IOEE) and was recognised as their Member of the Year 2018 after developing entrepreneurship and self-employment programmes in over 40 prisons. I am passionate about enhancing life chances and developing entrepreneurial talent so that people can have a sustainable and crime-free future – over 200 people have accessed support from my organisation. My Fellowship has made this possible, for which I will be forever grateful.
