Kenneth Tharp has been nominated as a finalist in the inaugural Black British Business Awards. The other finalists who have been nominated in the Media and the Arts, Leader category are Darcus Beese, President, Island Records and Arit Eminue, Director, DiVA. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thu 2 Oct in central London.
Kenneth commented: “It's very tempting to think that the most important measure of a successful business is the bottom line, i.e. how much profit your business makes. However, I'm absolutely certain that one of the most important indicators of success for us, as a charitable arts organisation, is the difference we make to each individual life, through the work we do. I also feel that whilst there is clearly no shortage of black British talent across a broad spectrum of sectors, there is still a need to continue to profile positive role models, both for future generations and in order to gradually change the makeup of Board rooms across all sectors, including government, which historically have tended to remain too “pale, male and stale”.
