What leaders have said about Cephas and his work

"Cephas is an inspiring driver of changing attitudes and his beautiful ‘Letter to Zion’ demonstrates his special combination of empathy and passion. I’m personally proud to be an ally and supporter."

William Eccleshare

Clear Channel Outdoor, Worldwide CEO

"I was introduced to Cephas Williams through Simon Pegg and was immediately captivated by the intelligence, integrity and style with which Cephas has crafted his work. Cephas’ work is important and impactful and I am delighted that Sony Pictures have been able to support his vision."

Richard Parsons

Sony Pictures TV International Production, COO

"From the moment I met Cephas, I knew that he was an agent for change. He has a remarkable combination: he is both candid and constructive, resolute but not judgmental, focused but inclusive.

If the Black British Network can reflect that, it will succeed. It challenges, it offers hope, and it paints a better future; what could be more inspiring? Ascential is committed to supporting the Black British Network in driving the necessary change to create a more equal Britain." 

Philip Thomas

Ascential, President, Marketing Division & Chairman, LIONS

"I’m involved with Cephas because, like him, I believe in working together for a better future. The more people that are engaged in building a brighter future the greater the progress. What inspired me in his letter was the commitment to improvement from whatever position you or your organisation may be. It’s the commitment to improvement that is important"

“The truth is, no one is perfect and even I cannot promise you that I will not make mistakes along my journey. The more I tried to strive for perfection the more I realised “perfect “isn’t real. And so there is no “perfect “, only improvement." - Quoted from Cephas' Letter to Zion

Keith Weed

WPP, Non-Executive Director

“I was moved by Cephas’ letter, and impressed by the speed with which he’s galvanised action across so many sectors. We’re joining the Black British Network and coming together with other businesses to help ensure people can succeed in the business world regardless of their race. We have to create positive change for the good of society, and because it’ll make our business and society at large, stronger.”

Annette King

Publicis Groupe, UK CEO
