There are a plethora of books focusing on success, what it is and how to achieve it but not one book in the UK that focuses on the unique needs of minority young people that has role models they can identify with culturally. This book is a unique concept as it focuses on role models, those who have achieved success solely from minority ethnic communities.

It is additionally unique in that the role models chosen are all British. 'Made in Britain' is a unique book designed to raise the aspirations of young people from minority ethnic backgrounds by highlighting a range of occupations that are not 'careers of choice' within these communities, or in which they are under-represented. Professions will include career areas such as law and the media as well more unusual areas such as comedy, rocket science and millinery! The booked is packed with insightful, inspirational role models that will encourage the reader to fulfill their own potential.

Among the diverse role models featured and lending their support for the book are:
" Bill Morris (Non -Executive Director at the Bank of England, former General Secretary of the TGWU)
" Gary Younge (writer and columnist for The Guardian and winner of the Ethnic Minority Media Award for best print journalist)
" Karan Bilimoria (CEO of Cobra Beer, one of Europe's fastest growing beer brand)
" Mohan Ahmed (Rocket Scientist and founder of Micro Launch!) " Ian Wright (footballer and TV presenter)

This book has come from a real need and demand in the market. The author and other agencies have lost count of the number of times we have been asked for such a resource.
