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.

MAKE CHANGE For 25 years, M&C Saatchi has changed the nation’s attitudes, habits, minds, diets and even its Government. In 2020, we joined forces with the former LIDA agency, boosting our strength in data-driven behaviour change at a personal level. Driving the new agency is Camilla Kemp (CEO) and Ben Golik (CCO), our very own dream team. Our national behaviour change movements are activated right down to the individual and our customer loyalty programmes have found their place in the nation’s heart. This gives us the nous to reach everyone and every single someone, to change how they think and how they act. Whether your brand is facing change – or forcing it – we are at our best when helping clients create opportunity in change.
