John Carlisle

Born in Zambia, John Carlisle was a miner who, after graduating, joined the team that ran the national programme replacing white employees with black school leavers in the mines. He set up his own company in Sheffield, JCP, that trained negotiators in supply chains and building collaborative strategies for construction projects. These helped save the industry about £500 million a year.

He also worked with young leaders in Eastern Europe and Asia, and set up an AIDS Recuperation Trust on his farm in South Africa - Intliziyo. He was also a Visiting Professor at Sheffield Business School for eight years.
