Max Gibbs, from Beckton, manages web services company Lime-Web and he was invited to the House of Lords by Lord Marland, head of the Prime Minister’s Business Ambassadors, to discuss young entrepreneurs and people in enterprise.
Max said: “The meeting with Lord Marland has increased my interest in those fields because he is a great entrepreneur and a very intelligent man.
“I have a great passion for business and look up to Mark Zuckerberg [founder of Facebook].”
