A second class from Sarah Bonnell School were taught by a combination of Redington and BlackRock volunteers following an introduction and welcome from Redington’s CEO Rob Gardner and Paul Cribb, Head of consultant relations at BlackRock. We were very pleased to welcome Hannah Foxley (The Women’s Wealth Expert), Irshaad Ahmad (Axa Investment Managers) and Mitesh Sheth (Innovation Consultant) as guest contributors.
