Hello, I’m Paul Cleal. I am an advisor and non-executive board member in a diverse range of organisations including the Premier League, Guy’s & Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and Metropolitan Police (you can learn more about my portfolio on the “What I do” page). I am also a mentor to a number of talented young individuals. My activity reflects my passion for education, diversity, social mobility and sport.  

I bring a wealth of experience gained from 30 years working in both private and public sectors. For sixteen years I was a partner in PwC, the world’s largest professional services firm, during which I held a range of leadership positions including main boards of UK and Africa practices. I helped many clients achieve their goals through my work in corporate finance and consulting and led the Human Resources function through a period of substantial transformation .  

I was awarded the OBE in the 2020 New Year honours list for my work in promoting diversity and inclusion. I also have an MBA from London Business School. You can read about some recent highlights and some of my thoughts on leadership in my blog. The media archive contains a range of interviews about diversity, social mobility, inclusive leadership and personal development

For more details about me see my profile on linked in or watch the appreciation video that my team did for me before I left PwC London to move to Africa back in 2015.
