In December 2022 I had the huge privilege of attending Jules’ Young Entrepreneur Event at Wembley. My role was to visit the stalls of 20 plus children that had attended his course created to help young people in disadvantaged areas to gain confidence in themselves and learn how to run their own business. The event was amazing. I was overwhelmed by the talent and motivation that the young people had. All furnished with card payment machines and selling their crafted or imported goods.
Julian established a method of teaching entrepreneurial skills to school pupils of all ages and inspired children of all academic and non-academic abilities to be able to benefit from a tutorial method that enabled them to recognise their own worth, as individuals and as part of a team, and as creative potential business people.
Julian’s dedication in the project has meant that thousands of children in some quite deprived areas have benefited from this programme, as well as students of more well off schools, as an incredible addition to the school curriculum, integrated with and giving greater meaning to curriculum subjects. The programme is universally beneficial in schools equipping pupils for the world of work.
The scheme is award winning and deservedly so.
I have known Jules for a number of years as he has been an active leader in the Tech London Advocates community and the TLA Education working group.
He has been a leading Advocate for diversity in the tech sector and has played a prominent role in the TLA ‘Road to One Million’ campaign, an initiative to create one million digital and tech jobs in London by 2023, with a big focus on diversity in the sector.
He works closely with young entrepreneurs and reaches out to young people in low income communities. He has been an important voice in the role that education plays, especially through the Ultra Education initiative that he has set up.
Julian is a trail blazer in helping young people to understand finace literacy and entrepreneurship. His passion to see young people love what they do and do what they love is priceless. He’s worked with some the biggest companies in the world to bring about real change for the next generation.

I’ve been an entrepreneur for over 25 years and a lover of technology for even longer. In that time I have realised that without creativity there is no innovation and without innovation there is no entrepreneurship. Doing what you love is more than just feeling good about the work you do but your customers and clients feeling good about it too. The true measure of success is happiness and the future of business is delivering great experiences through products and services. The marriage of technology and creativity will drive this change and that change will remain constant.
