Piers comes from a small mill town in Lancashire and worked hard at his local school in order to get the results to further his education at the University of Manchester, where he studied Accounting and Law. In 1997 Piers moved to London to start his career as a lawyer with a City law firm called SJ Berwin and he specialised in venture capital and corporate finance and experienced management teams and investors cutting deals. After qualifying Piers became an investment banker at Barclays de Zoete Wedd and then Credit Suisse. He learnt key skills working as a banker in the city, which would help him progress as a businessman and entrepreneur.

An entrepreneur at heart, Piers knew that he had to leave his job as a banker in order to achieve his business goals.  Piers saw the business opportunities that the internet held and he decided to set up his own internet enterprise; he ran his own corporate finance and alternative finance advisory business and became a partner in an alternative investment fund. After several successful business ventures, Piers created Outsourcery, a cloud service provider which was names as Microsoft’s worldwide Hosting Partner of the Year in 2010.

Outsourcery went from strength to strength and in 2013 was one of three award finalists and the only one in EMEA for Microsoft’s worldwide Server Platform Partner of the Year.  Piers has also acted as a member of the governance board of the UK’s Cloud Industry Forum and has appeared in the media several times to discuss the advantages of cloud computing. He has been interviewed on channels such as Bloomberg, Sky News, CNN, CNBC and BBC. Piers also appeared in ‘The Secret Millionaire’ on Channel 4 and on BBC Two's ‘Dragon’s Den’ where he spent two years deciding whether or not to invest in future businesses.

Piers has been named one of today’s top 100 most influential black Britons in the Thomson Reuters sponsored Power List; he was also chosen as one of the twenty “REACH” National Role Models representing the Government-backed programme whose initiative was to raise the aspirations and fuel the achievements of young black men. 

Piers’ passion for business and encouraging entrepreneurial thinking in the UK is evident in his speeches, which he delivers in a confident and engaging manner. He can speak about the rapid evolution of technology and communications and what they have to offer the business world. He shares his knowledge with corporate audiences around the world and never fails to impress.
