Ian grew up in a working class family in Middlesbrough and was fortunate enough to win a place at Wadham College, Oxford. This transformed his life as it enabled him to learn to relate and interact with people from all sorts of different backgrounds.

He came out as a bisexual man in his early 20s and has always been open about his sexuality, including to his 2 sons and their families.

Ian’s career has involved helping organisations of all types and sizes to build inclusive cultures to enable them to leverage and embrace the diversity in their workforces.

He is also a qualified coach and counsellor and works with people of all types to help them develop and deal with any traumas they have suffered. Ian is an international speaker and has spoken at conferences and events around the world.
