‘Entrepreneurs within the business world can learn a lot from philanthropy and charitable giving’ said Jameel Paul, Managing Director of Pro UK Consultants. ‘I think that businesses can learn a huge amount about authentic leadership. This is not because there are no good leaders in the business world, but there are a lot of fake leaders who are not inspiring. Within the world of philanthropy, there are a huge amount of inspiring leaders who people want to follow and learn from. In business, the more inspiring your leader is, then the more successful the business is likely to be’ added Jameel Paul.
