Praise for Rami Ranger
At a speech in 2015 at South Bank University after donating £250,000 to help set up the Dr Rami Ranger Centre for Graduate Entrepreneurs: "So many different cultures, colours, religions are working here. This is the ideal place for me, as an immigrant to come here and show other immigrants that success is possible. Britain is a land of great opportunities and with the five golden principles; self-respect, work ethic, commitment, vision and empathy, everything is possible."
