Profile Information

Your Profile
I am Dean Okai, I am a business owner and social entrepreneur. I am a Father, who home schools his son, I am a village member that mentors our sons, based on my experience. There is no substitute for experience and I believe in continually sharpening my pencil, so that my experience counts.

I have had businesses since I moved out into the world at 18 and every time a business went down, I would get a job to save stake money and put another educated bet on myself. After 24 years of practical experience in negotiating, selling, raising finance and putting ongoing concerns together, I have enough space in my life to operate a social enterprise.

I am co partner in 'Transition of the Black Pound', a Think Tank formed to execute African/Caribbean infrastructure projects by raising finance to purchase property for tangible projects, including African/Caribbean Chambers of Commerce, Schools, Community Centres, Business Incubators and a News Gathering Agency.

I practice what I preach, by operating independently of the white power structure by owning my own businesses and home schooling my son. we can say what we like, but when you depend on their infrastructure, at some point you will be forced to dance to their tune. The only way to have any autonomy is to call the shots for yourself and be the architect of your own destiny.

I don't profess that what I do is easy, because it is a constant struggle.....that I happen to enjoy every day. Business is problem solving and one thing that happens when you are solving problems every day from finance to logistics and awkward customers is that it sharpens your pencil and gives you a unique way of looking at solutions practically. In it for the wedding, in it for the funeral and I wouldn't have it any other way.
