It's time for a change, time is of the essence, time is money. We're all obsessed with time. Whether we don't have enough of it, or we don't know how to best spend it, in work and in life, we often waste a lot of it.

The BAME community is full of intelligent, creative and highly skilled individuals, but we need to show younger generations that they can succeed in business. Celebrating the achievements of diverse business leaders is a powerful tool in increasing the visibility of role models for younger people from minority ethnic backgrounds, and therefore helping to support the diverse leaders of tomorrow.

It has become even more apparent to me that my time is my money, and that our sense of identity is tightly linked to our concept of money and the value we place on our time and ourselves.
