Kayam Iqbal - Chairman & Founder, The OppO Foundation

A British Muslim and former RAF Medic with a specialisation in languages, embarked on a remarkable journey of resilience and determination. His service with intelligence units in Afghanistan exposed him to the complexities of military life, culminating in severe PTSD and medical discharge.

Undeterred by adversity, Kayam ventured into the world of IT, initially unfamiliar with the field but driven by an unshakable belief in the power of possibility. He contributed his expertise to renowned corporations like M&S, Tesco, and Freshfields, managing multi-million-pound programmes.

In a testament to his spirit, Kayam established The OppO Foundation, a charity dedicated to supporting veterans facing challenges like his own. He’s also founded several thriving businesses in recruitment including Tech.

Kayam’s influence extends beyond entrepreneurship. As a prominent speaker on national radio and a ‘Hunter’ on Channel 4’s The Hunted, he amplifies crucial conversations. His collaboration with government agencies and corporate entities on D&I strategy and policy underscores his commitment to inclusivity.

His story embodies the ethos of resilience, transformation, and the belief that anything is possible. He’s a catalyst for change, challenging stereotypes, and inspiring to ‘Change Perceptions of those who have served our Nation’.
