Aseem Bandali

Born in London of Ugandan-Indian heritage, Aseem considers himself lucky to be a rich blend of east and west, with roots in India, where he spent much of his childhood, as well as in Africa and Europe.

Describing himself as 'coming from a lowly background', Aseem worked his way through a variety of jobs in building and construction, the civil service, hospitality and catering and the travel industry.

In 1999, Aseem finally began on a path, which ultimately led him to a career in social care. As a qualified social worker, Aseem supported vulnerable children and adults with physical, emotional or intellectual disabilities, and latterly coordinated enquiries into institutional abuse and neglect.

In 2014, Aseem decided to take a career break and embarked on an adventure, 'Tangoing to Argentina in 80 days' to fundraise for Parkinsons UK. Following his travels, Aseem continues to enjoy Tango at every opportunity, and is currently working on his first book #mytangojourney.

Aseem's talk will be one of many forming part of the creative line up for the TEDxBanbury event taking place in St Mary's Church on Saturday, February 29.
