Caroline Kenyon – Broadcaster and Serial Entrepreneur – Celebrating a Life of Food, Glorious Food

Caroline Kenyon, broadcaster and serial entrepreneur in the world of food, founder of The Food Awards Company and co-founder of the radio company Food FM.  I invited Caroline to sit down with me to talk about her love of food and how she nurtures it and cultivates it in others.

Now we are back to our main series focused on investment professionals but love runs through it like a golden thread.  Love, discipline, lessons from parents.  Our guests include a former college football player, who spent time working as a prison guard before returning to university and ultimately entering the investment industry, an expert on music valuation, multiple ESG and pensions specialists and founders of fund companies – large and small.
