Share Article

In 2020, 50% of The Calypso Twins were appointed MBE. In 2023 that will have increased to 100%!

Happy New Year!

I am delighted (and frankly somewhat stunned) to have been appointed MBE for services to Business and Social Mobility in the New Year’s Honours List.

I wouldn’t have been appointed MBE without all that I owe to my mum and dad, wonderful friends, colleagues, clients and supporters, as well as all the disadvantaged young people that I have mentored and trained over the years. I hope it will allow me to do so much more of this, and to help businesses and charities advance their social mobility agenda too.

Here is a brief press release with more information.
