Paul graduated from UMIST in 2003 with a Master’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering. He now works as a Design Consultant with the international engineering firm Laing O'Rourke. His portfolio includes several award winning buildings and he was directly involved in the design and build of the stadiums that helped Qatar win their bid for the World Cup in 2022! Paul has presented at the University of Cambridge and been invited to talk at high-schools as a BME role model. Based on his background in Engineering and his adept skills in thinking creatively and solving problems, Paul and Rommell created the intriguing and engaging workshop 'Innov8 2 Elev8' and the 'K.O.O.L Model™’, to emphasise the importance of these skills to be successful in life, as well as to encourage young people to set and achieve positive goals in their lives.
