Positive Britain is a new approach to engaging with individuals with challenging backgrounds and experiences that need support, mentoring and funding to transform their ideas into concrete viable business ventures.
We have designed a package of support that involves media, communications training, mentoring and business guidance that will accelerate your personal and business growth through use of our TV channel and communication platforms to enable disconnected youth, budding entrepreneurs and individuals to overcome adversity in their lives.
The United Kingdom is currently experiencing uncertainty and turbulence as it navigates the complex procedures in exiting the European Union.
We believe that there will be a significant increase in demand for support and funding as the UK economy prioritises self-employment as a means of creating wealth and prosperity across our towns, communities and regions.
The founders of Positive Britain feel this could be one answer to the growing nature of knife crime and gangland culture in British cities arising out of Disconnection, social exclusion and a breakdown in parental support as economic deprivation fosters economic inactivity amongst these groups.
This project will contribute to giving disconnected youth a voice, capitalising on their potential and strengthening their existing skills and encouraging a clearer path

Michael Spooner lost his sight at 13 years old. Due to the development of medical technology, he was fortunate to benefit from a ground-breaking operation which regained his sight at 16 years old, only to then lose it again at 21 years old during the middle of his University Degree forcing him to leave his Law Degree to study Business and Management.
The challenge of losing his sight has forced him to adapt his life to overcome adversity, leading him to want to inspire and encourage others to take control of their disability or barriers and not allow it to control or hold them back. His approach thinks of alternative and effective ways they can change or adapt their role, so they are not excluded from the labour market or prevented from achieving their business objectives simply because of their background or personal circumstances.
After completing 2 years of research he has formulated a Business Innovation Tool Kit and 12 dynamic and motivational Training Programmes which are now part of the consultancy delivered by the team.

changing VHF to UHF.
This was quite a dangerous invention system at the time because receiving such signals was specifically banned under the communist dictatorship at the time and could have caused dire consequences for the family.
