Akil Benjamin is our Entrepreneur in Residence and Lead Facilitator of M&C Saatchi Saturday School.
After spending years working with global brands at his design and innovation agency, COMUZI, to invent new products, services and experiences, Akil set up Saturday School to teach the basics of business to the community. We became partners in 2019 and open our offices each month at the weekend to host these workshops. We share a goal to teach 1000 people in 2020 in the UK and are delighted to see our M&C Saatchi colleagues in Sydney and South Africa roll out Saturday School.
Available to all, Saturday School makes itself freely accessible to women of colour of all ages and young people from under-represented communities.
