Rav Singh is a London-born Sikh who has a long track record of working in the community and voluntary sector, particularly within the Sikh community. Rav established a community initiative called A little History of the Sikhs that conducts walking tours in London; day trips across the South of England, and study visits to Europe exploring Sikh and Anglo-Sikh history. Within these tours of London’s memorials and historic buildings, he often narrates the stories of the Sikh pioneers within the British Armed Forces and Emergency Services. His initiative provides a platform to raise awareness and support of the NESM campaign within his tour groups.
In his working life, Rav is a professional project manager, who is currently working as an Associate Director for a small management consultancy company in Hertfordshire. He has extensive experience of large-scale transformation programmes in the public sector, particularly in place-making regeneration initiatives and the governance processes that underpin successful delivery.
Speaking of his appointment as an Ambassador, Rav Singh said, “A quote that particularly resonates with me as a Sikh is that during any tragedy, “look for the helpers, you will always find people who are helping.” Most often, these people are our emergency services and first responders, and the challenge of delivering the NESM appeals to me personally. I look forward to working with a focussed team, and learning how my skills developed at a community level can be applied to a project of national significance.”
