Adam Afriyie is a British Conservative Party politician, the Member of Parliament for Windsor and a noted corporate and inspirational keynote and after-dinner speaker.
The son of an English mother and a Ghanaian father, Adam was born in Wimbledon, London, and grew up on a council estate in Peckham.
Despite a tough single-parent upbringing with seven half-siblings and one brother, and not knowing his father until he was much older, Adam worked hard to climb up the social and financial ladder.
With a background in business and agricultural economics, Adam combines his role as a Member of Parliament with that of a politics speaker, working to educate children and young people about British politics and helping to change the shape of Britain.
Adam is the chairman of Connect Support Services, an IT support company he set up in 1993, and owned two-thirds of DeHavilland, a news and information services company, which was sold to publishers Emap in 2005 for £18 million.
He was also a regional finalist in the 2003 Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards, a Governor of the Museum of London, a trustee of the Museum in Docklands and a director of Policy Exchange, a centre-right policy body.
A self-made millionaire, Adam is the first mixed-race MP of the Conservative Party and in his work as a political and motivational speaker, he strives to encourage more ethnic minorities to take an active role in British politics.
