Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE has had a hugely successful corporate career which he attributes to the kindness of his school headmaster “He was determined his pupils would never feel excluded”. In 2015, Her Majesty the Queen appointed Sir Ken as Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for Greater London and he was knighted in the 2018 New Year’s Honours List for services to business and philanthropy. Providing hope and encouraging talent have played a central role in Sir Kenneth’s life. He has held key roles at Thames Reach, Shaw Trust and the Aleto Foundation, tackling homelessness, unemployment and the personal development of young people in achieving their full potential. Sir Kenneth is Founder and Chairman of Restoration Partners. Sir Ken has visited the college on a number of occasions in recent years to support our work.
