Mark Cowne, founder of Kruger Cowne, wowed the One Young World audience this month with the amazing announcement that he will be sending one lucky 18-30 year old into space. Through Kruger Cowne’s Rising Star Programme, one lucky applicant will be catapulted, not only into space but also, on to the world stage.
The talent agency and world-class speaker’s bureau is offering the chance to be amongst stars in both the literal and figurative sense, with the successful applicant to be added to their roster and mentored by some of the planet’s leaders in fields including sport, music, entertainment and business.
“Fostering the world’s next great leaders, we plan to nurture individuals so that one of them can literally experience the world from a completely new perspective, inspiring them to create long lasting memories that they can share with the next generation.” Mark Cowne, Kruger Cowne.
This once in a lifetime chance provides an opportunity for an outstanding member of the public from anywhere in the world to share their experience of this incredible adventure. Additionally the Rising Star will also contribute solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues as a result of sponsorship to next year’s One Young World Summit 2015 in Bangkok.

The JHPR team accompanied Kruger Cowne, to Dublin, Ireland for the awe-inspiring One Young World Summit. The preeminent global forum for young leaders welcomed a number of Kruger Cowne’s talented public speakers, including Sir Bob Geldof, Boris Becker, Meghan Markle, Michiel Mol, Adam Walker, Sol Campbell and Maya Sanbar. The event’s celebrations saw Dublin welcome their very own XCOR Lynx Space Shuttle, as well as an impromptu swim from Adam Walker up the Liffey.
October 22nd marked the 8th year of the PRECIOUS Awards which took place at the salubrious Institute of Directors, London. Where better to celebrate the outstanding achievements and entrepreneurial spirit of women of colour across all industries.
The event was a night to remember, as women of colour were honoured for their achievements in business. Hosted by JHPR’s very own Jessica Huie MBE and motivational speaker and business coach Rashid Ogunlaru, the night saw women such as Gina Moffat, Jasmine Dotiwala and Bianca Miller celebrated for the outstanding strides they have made in their respective industries. Sponsored by Credit Suisse and Harvey Nash with queen of the air waves Angie Greaves as keynote speaker, the night proved to truly be inspirational for all those that attended.
Launched in 2007, The PRECIOUS Awards provides a platform to celebrate the achievements of outstanding female talent across industries, amongst the UK’s diverse communities. The awards place a spotlight on a group of women whose successes have been underrepresented by wider society thus far.
Since launching, the awards have been instrumental in informing the business community and driving change around issues of diversity and female entrepreneurial and leadership talent.
