Originally from New Delhi, India, Prem had very modest beginnings, attending state schools and spending his summers as a child in a house with no bathroom and only one electric light.

He earned his bachelor’s degree from the Indian Institute of Technology before winning a scholarship to undertake a Masters in Engineering at Clarkson University, New York. Later he obtained an MBA from UCLA in California where he also won the Dean’s Outstanding Student Award.

Prem went on to enjoy a successful career working across three continents for global institutions, including Goldman Sachs and Proctor and Gamble, culminating in the launch of GMC in London and New York in 2002.

Over his 15+ years in business he has worked with leading industry professionals in the areas of business strategy, sales and trading, risk management and auditing, to name a few. Outside of the workplace Prem serves as a Magistrate. For charity he has raised £175,000 by completing challenges such as the London Marathon and climbing Mt Kilimanjaro.

He is trustee or patron to over 25 charities, providing them with business expertise, supporting their fundraising efforts and recognising our unsung heroes and community champions.  Prem is thrilled to share his business expertise to help UpRising participants raise their aspirations, achieve success and fulfil their potential.
