Paul Lindley

After a very special evening in 2019, Holly will be returning to Manchester Cathedral in 2020 for a live recording of Conversations of Inspiration with Paul Lindley OBE, founder of Ella’s Kitchen.

Paul Lindley is an award-winning British entrepreneur, social campaigner and best-selling author. In 2006 he founded Ella’s Kitchen, an innovative brand of organic baby food built on a core social mission: not just to sell baby food, but to improve the lives of children by developing healthier relationships with food. It has since become the UK’s largest baby food brand, with over $100M in sales across 40 countries. 

Paul believes the best businesses make profits AND have a core purpose to do social good; and that more ‘human-ness’ is needed in our economy and civil society. In 2018 Paul stepped back from Ella’s Kitchen, to devote more of his time to social campaigning. 

In 2018, Paul was appointed Chair of the newly established London Child Obesity Taskforce by the Mayor of London.

In 2019, Paul founded just IMAGINE if… an annual, university-based, innovation competition to support entrepreneurial ideas designed to address the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
