About Alex Holmes

Alex Holmes created a national movement against bullying and discrimination at age just 16 and now works with some of the biggest corporates and individuals in the world to further his mission. He was named on the Independent on Sunday’s Happy List as one of the ‘100 people who make Britain a happier place to live’ and has a keen interest on barriers to children’s happiness and wellbeing.

Alex is Deputy CEO at non-profit The Diana Award, which is a legacy to Princess Diana’s belief that young people have the power to change the world.  He is founder of peer-to-peer support programme Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, a network of trained young people dedicated to preventing peer on peer violence and bullying particularly in schools. This is a programme Alex founded when aged 16, after experiencing bullying himself. The programme has trained over 35,000 young people across UK, Ireland, Greece, Miami (United States) empowering young people to keep themselves and their peers safe and happy, in 4,000 schools.

Alex sits on the global safety advisory boards of a number of the major social media and tech companies advising them on their approach to safety and online harms.  He’s a regular expert on ITV This Morning, CBBC Newsround and a trusted government advisor.

He builds his speeches on his experiences, including discrimination, working with global tech companies on safety and leadership and activism within the charity sector.
