    Simon Morgan - From Protecting Royals To Entrepreneurship

    Simon Morgan - From Protecting Royals To Entrepreneurship

    My guest on Five Star Insights is Founder and Director of Trojan Consultancy, Simon Morgan.

    Simon has enjoyed an illustrious career where he served as a personal protection officer to Her Majesty The Queen and other members of the British Royal Family, former Prime Ministers like David Cameron and other high profile dignitaries, leaders and individuals.

    He started in the Metropolitan Police Service working both in SO19 as a specialist Firearms Officer before moving on to the prestigious SO14 in Royal Personal Protection.

    From 2007 – 2013 he was always on guard as the Royal Family went about their duties and he played a big role in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in April 2011.

    While he enjoyed working in the public sector, the transition to the private sector with his business, Trojan Consultancy has been a new challenge as he had to quickly learn how to develop, run and expand a business.

    The greatest lesson he has learnt is lots of people hear but don’t listen.

    Surinder Arora - A Self-Made Billionaire

    Surinder Arora - A Self-Made Billionaire

    My guest on Five Star Insights this month is self-made billionaire Surinder Arora. Surinder is an entrepreneur with an extraordinary and inspiring story. He is founder and chairman of Arora Group, one of the UK’s largest private hotel owner-operators.

    Surinder arrived in the UK at the age of 13 in 1972 speaking no English. His parents had arrived a few years earlier and called for him from the Punjab once they had settled in West London.

    Hard work runs in the blood. His mother held down three jobs and was extremely ambitious for her son. Surinder left school and had jobs with British Airways and Abbey Life. He saved and invested in property, buying derelict houses and converting them into bed and breakfast for airline staff.

    He eventually bulldozed the houses and built a hotel from scratch, convincing both lenders and British Airways to give him the contract to run a hotel for the airline’s crew. It wasn’t long before he was on a roll both buying and operating hotels and the rest as they say is history.
