In this episode, Liam talks to Lord Karan Bilimoria, Founder of Cobra beer and President of the Confederation of British Industry. Born in Hyderabad, Lord Bilimoria was educated in the UK.
While still in his twenties, he set up Cobra – “to create a beer with the refreshment of lager, but the smoothness of ale, the perfect accompaniment to curry”. A qualified chartered accountant and lawyer, Lord Bilimoria eventually sold a controlling interest in Cobra to the Canadian brewing giant Molson.
He is now Chancellor of Birmingham University – the first Indian-born Chancellor of a Russell Group University. He became CBI President in June 2020.
