Sir Ken Olisa OBE
Businessman and philanthropist
"I pledged to be an Age Irrelevance Ambassador and encourage others to debate the question what age irrelevance means and to inspire action in others.
Looking back over my three score years and ten, I see a nation in which so many hurdles have been torn down for the betterment of all. Gender and heritage are perhaps the largest, but many others labels have gone, permitting people to pursue their dreams. Sadly, age is yet to join the bonfire of the barriers. I am therefore delighted to take the pledge as a Greengross Foundation Ambassador, adding my voice to this valuable cause."
