About Henry

Henry started his official business journey at the age of nine when he launched Not Before Tea. This children’s brand was based on story book he had written entitled The Adventures of Sherb and Pip. All the characters in the book were bought to life through products such as bags, wash bags and soft toys which he got listed in over 60 UK stores. Today the products are sold internationally and Henry has just secured investment to grow the brand further.

At 12 years old, Henry was a keynote speaker at the prestigious Retail Week Live event at the 02 in London, where he shared the stage with the likes of Facebook and Google.

Despite battling a stammer, he developed a love of public speaking and has since spoken alongside some of the worlds top motivational speakers on stages in Malaysia, Singapore, Italy, Berlin and Vietnam.

At the end of 2017, now 13, Henry set up a foundation to inspire young people. Plans are underway to develop this in to a practical online space, to enable budding young entrepreneurs to turn their business ideas into reality. This is set to launch May 2018. He is sharing the lessons he has learnt to schools an colleges throughout the UK, most recently working in a group of students from The Peter Jones Academy.

On May 15th Henry launches his book ‘Young&Mighty’ for 11-15 year olds. The book is packed with tips and advice on setting up a venture, ways to ‘double your pocket money’ and advice from those at the top of their industry such as Sir Richard Branson, Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger, Sarah Willingham and Sir Cameron Mackintosh and many more.
