Talking about what made him want to be part of this radio series, Dr Stephen Fear said: “It is essential that society focuses on making the poor richer, not the rich poorer. It’s about creating balance which can only be achieved by raising the bar and instilling self-belief.” Fear added: “With this series of programmes we aim to encourage young people, who seemingly have little or no future, to become creators of their own wealth, that benefits both themselves and society. Wealth is not just about money, it’s about attitude and community too. Some may also become millionaires in their own right and future leaders of a more balanced and tolerant society.” Roger Griffith, Chair of Ujima Radio CIC and co-host of the show, commented: “Stephen is a well-known figure in the community and after facing so much adversity and then becoming one of the country’s leading businessmen, he is an inspiring individual and we believe Ujima Radio is the perfect platform for him to engage and influence his audience. We want to inspire people of all backgrounds to achieving success. We will be working with a young team of entrepreneur’s, who are seeking advice and guidance in tough economic times. By working with a grass-roots community based social enterprise this is one way to encourage future business leaders ’’ For more information about Ujima Radio 98 FM and to tune into Dr Stephen Fear’s show, visit www.ujimaradio.com or contact Roger Griffith on 07770-266311 roger@ujimaradio.com About Dr Stephen Fear Dr Stephen Fear is an English entrepreneur, businessman, philanthropist and author with over 40 years international business experience.
