Lord Rami Ranger will share his business journey from homeless refugee in India to world-renowned entrepreneur and CEO of multi-million pound distribution company, Sun Mark Ltd, at a guest lecture on Thursday 17th October 2019 at the University's City Campus in Wolverhampton.
Lord Ranger came to the UK with a mere £2 in his pocket, and through hard work and business acumen, he now transports goods to countries across the world and has received five Queen’s Awards for Enterprise. He has been awarded a peerage by former Prime Minister Theresa May in recognition of his contribution to the British economy.
After the lecture, Lord Ranger will be signing copies of his book "From Nothing to Everything", available for purchase at the event.
Lord Ranger said: "My story shows that one does not need a rich father, an elite education or the old schoolboy network to help one in life. What one needs is self-respect, ethics, commitment, vision and empathy."
The lecture is supported by the RBS Sikh Network and NatWest and will take place from 6.00 pm until 8.15 pm.
