ABOUT THE HOST
Jay Dhillon is a serial entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist based in the UK with a
proven track record of growing businesses from start-up to success- and helping others do
the same. From humble beginnings, Jay grew his first business from 0-500 employees and
three locations, racking up sales of over £30 million – all without any investment other than
a small amount of savings. The business went on to acquire major clients such as Land
Rover, Jaguar, Toyota and New Look, to name a few.
Its huge success inevitably brought about outside interest and at the age 33, Jay eventually
sold the company to a London investment firm in Doyen Resources. Today, Jay owns several
businesses in different sectors and helps entrepreneurs achieve success.
A calling to give back and help others led to Jay being chosen for the highly-coveted role as a
Prince’s Trust mentor, where his achievements were marked by a personal invitation to
Buckingham Palace to meet Prince Charles.
After helping several young entrepreneurs to success as a mentor for the Trust, Jay’s
burning desire to bring his wisdom and knowledge to a wider audience ultimately triggered
the concept of The Business Mentor Podcast.
Jay feels that anyone can achieve success in business with the right advice and mentoring
and is now sharing his knowledge with his growing audience via his podcast.
In the UK alone 95% of business fail within the first five years and Jay’s aim is to reduce that
Backed with the hard-earned knowledge and experience from his time in business, The
Business Mentor Podcast will share Jay’s personal business lessons as well those of other
successful entrepreneur guests who share their wisdom and secrets on the show.
