Biography

Dr.Spinder Dhaliwal
Academic and author Dr. Spinder Dhaliwal is a recognised and leading expert in her field. Her book, 'Making a Fortune - Learning from the Asian Phenomenon' (Capstone) highlights the success of the Asian business community in the UK.

Spinder has written extensively about the Asian business community and compiles Britain’s Richest Asians in Success magazine for Eastern Eye reflecting her long held interest in the field. She wrote the influential study “Silent Contributors – Asian Female Entrepreneurs and Women in Business” which highlighted this important, yet often neglected, issue. Her report for Barclays Bank entitled, ‘Asian entrepreneurs in the UK’ received global attention.
Spinder has developed what the Daily Mail described as a “high flying career” which spans academia, writing and the media. Spinder was both founder and director of the Centre for Asian Entrepreneurial Research (CAER). Spinder knows all about the challenges of the Asian entrepreneur from first hand experience. Her father, who came to the UK from the Punjab in the 1960s, ran a corner shop in which Spinder balanced the demands of a busy family business with high academic achievement. She attended Warwick University as an undergraduate and was awarded her Doctorate from Brunel University before embarking on an academic career.
Avoiding the insularity of many in her profession, Spinder’s work targets, and hits, a much wider audience than just students and other academics. She has been a regular contributor to the Asian media and, in the past few years, has become an increasingly influential figure in more mainstream circles. Spinder, and her work, have been profiled in The Independent, The Daily Mirror and The Daily Mail and she recently appeared on the BBC’s flagship breakfast news programme. She was also featured as a commentator and expert on BBC2’s peak time programme, “Making a Fortune – the Asian Way”. She is ideally suited to the demands of being editor of the Britain’s Richest Asians. She was also the Education Editor for Prospects magazine and on the editorial panel of PROWESS (promoting women’s enterprise) and a Board Member of the Institute of Small Business and Enterprise.
