Child food and toiletries tycoon Paul Lindley has a lot to get through when he appears at a major festival in the region next week.
The businessman made a fortune from Ella’s Kitchen baby food, established a social enterprise supporting entrepreneurs in Africa and hopes to make a second fortune from Paddy’s Bathroom children’s toiletries – while funding clean water in Rwanda.
All that after a career as an accountant and nine years at children’s television channel, Nickelodeon.
A social conscience is vital in business, he will tell the audience at Sheffield City Hall on Thursday October 22.
His appearance is part of the MADE The Entrepreneur Festival, which annually attracts speakers and business owners from across South Yorkshire and the Isle of Axholme.
Paul said: “Businesses who see making money as their only goal are very short-sighted.
“Modern consumers demand social awareness from the brands they buy, especially younger ones who have been given more awareness of worldwide issues by the internet.”
