Words From Our Patron & Founder

Lord Michael Hastings CBE


A visionary is not a man who sees a route to self adoration or the congratulations of the masses … a visionary feels the depth of the need he must address and through the sweat of the years and the shedding of tears, plans out a better day and a better way for those whose reality fills his sight – that is the man Amani and his compulsion to drive through indifference and disengagement and instead pull on the power of great life enhancing examples and create a vision that has arms and legs and adds up and we can see…that excites me

Amani Simpson


“LEARN, EARN, RETURN”

“I birthed my vision for Aviard in 2008 (at the age of 18) because I wanted to create a movement fuelled with the information, support and opportunities that I needed when I was growing up. No matter how large we grow as a business, helping young people to set stretching goals and become their best selves (as early as possible) will always be at the core of why we exist!”
