FORA.tv Speaker - Peter Lampl
Sir Peter Lampl is acknowledged to be the UK’s leading educational philanthropist. He is the founder and chairman of the Sutton Trust which aims to improve social mobility through education. The Trust has funded over 100 research studies but it is primarily a 'do tank' initating and supporting a wide range of programmes from early years through to access to the professions.
He is also chairman of the Education Endowment Foundation set up last year by the Sutton Trust with support from Impetus Trust funded by an endowment of £135 million from the Government to improve the performance of the poorest children in the worst performing schools.
Before establishing the Sutton Trust, Peter was the founder and chairman of the Sutton Company, a Private Equity firm with offices in New York, London and Munich and became one of the 200 wealthiest people in the UK.
