Amit Sharma

For Amit, the key in supporting ethnic minority colleagues is making sure they get more than their fair share of client interaction, both with existing and prospective clients, and attending events where they can get used to the ‘small talk’ and engaging with clients. The other area is mentoring, which he takes part in particularly prior to appraisal or promotion requests. He focuses on being forthright and taking responsibility for their own career advancement. Externally, Amit often coaches young people in his community to be more open to a life of varied careers and the key of building your skill set. He has also supported numerous people in the community around how to develop their CV’s, get the right work experience and prepare for interviews or answering questions from partners.
