Lenny Henry's 30 + years in show business as an award winning comedian, documentary maker, communicator and founding member of COMIC RELIEF have equipped him for more than just the stand up comedy, acting, writing, producing for which he has become renowned.

Throughout the years Lenny has been present at some of the most amazing events in history, two Mandela days as co-host, various Red Nose days, and performances for Amnesty International. Lenny has also travelled far and wide for Comic Relief fundraising purposes. His career has also encompassed an epoch in British show business history, where black performers and programme makers have been sadly, few and far between.

Lenny has also been a firm advocate for cultural diversity, both at the BBC and throughout the entertainment field. He sees mentoring, leadership, goal setting and teamwork as the central tenets to every aspect of his career and the things he cares about.

Lenny has completed a BA Hons (open) in English Literature with the Open University, and, if you like, he can tell you how he did it. He is also prepared to talk about Comic Relief, cultural diversity in the work place and team work.

Lenny toured around the UK and Australia and New Zealand in 2008 and stared in the West Yorkshire Playhouse's production of Othello.

    I was impressed by Chris's speech. His great strength is his ability to communicate his message throughout an organisation, his views are practical and down to earth, always thought provoking, sometimes controversial but never dull.
