On this special episode of the Social Enterprise Podcast, Rupert is joined by philanthropist Professor Peter Virdee. An entrepreneur, Peter’s business interests span real estate, renewal energy, minerals trading, and insurance broking. Committed to helping some of the world’s poorest and most needy people, he has said it is his ambition to give away half of his wealth. Founder of The Virdee Foundation, he is also a patron of the NSPCC, is on the board of the English National Opera, and sat on the philanthropy advisory board of Coutts & Co. He talks about his motivations for giving, explains his approach to philanthropy, and reveals how he chooses between different causes.
