Kwame Badu is the founder of the Blueprint Recruitment Group (BRG) and KB Consultants. He is also a property investor, entrepreneur and author of five, self-help e-books, which focus on topics such as job hunting, networking and starting a business.
Kwame studied Biochemistry at the London Metropolitan University and originally embarked on a career in advertising sales, before going into public sector recruitment.
However, he quickly realised that he was simply working to build someone else’s dream, rather than his own, which he refers to as ‘JOB’, or ‘just over broke’. In order to achieve the lifestyle and financial freedom he wanted, he knew he needed to change his way of thinking and stop relying on ‘linear income’.
Kwame founded Blueprint Recruitment Group (BRG) founded in 2007, a recruitment company based in Canary Wharf that caters to both the public and private sector. BRG has made its name as one of the most successful recruiters in its class, focusing on helping the long-term unemployed to find sustainable employment with housing associations and welfare providers.
In 2011, following the success of BRG and responding to trends in eCommerce, Kwame created FFM (Fastforwardme), an easy-to-use, online recruitment tool, which simplifies the arduous task of job searching and has proven to be an instant success.
Kwame’s most recent business venture is a commercial and residential property management service that provides competitive maintenance and sales services across the world.
These achievements have placed Kwame in a position where many people seek his guidance and support in achieving their business and everyday goals. Kwame, therefore, decided to write five, self-help eBooks, focusing on topics such as how to get the job you want, investment and starting a business, as well as the importance of building a network.
Kwame believes the true definition of success is in the creation of a platform that allows you to give back, helping others to overcome obstacles to also achieve their dreams. He is the father of two, beautiful daughters and lives in London.
