About this episode

Tom Ilube CBE is a technology entrepreneur and is CEO and founder of Crossword Cyber Security. Tom has many accolades to his name – he’s founded a number of other businesses, is a non executive director of the BBC, and he’s also an Honorary Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford. In this gripping conversation, Tom explores how education differed in the various countries he’s called home over the years. After growing up in London, Tom moved with his father to Uganda and later to Nigeria, before returning to the UK in adulthood. He also shares insight into his success, from a tireless approach to job applications, to a constant desire to “step up”, and the mental fortitude provided by a strong family unit. This episode also touches on racism, examples of great leadership, and the importance of providing equal educational opportunities for all.
