Following   his   graduation   in   Economics   &   Accounting   at   Bristol University    1988-1991,    Shaylesh    joined    Ernst    &    Young    (ACA 1994). During   his   ten   years   there   he   worked   for   a   variety   of   clients   and gained      extensive      experience      in      people      and      change management   activities;   taxation   and   insolvency;   due   diligence; audit and accounting. In    July    1999,    Shaylesh    became    the    first    Ernst    &    Young employee    to    be    seconded    to    the    Government’s    local    inward investment    agency    –    London    First    Centre    (now    called    Think London)   –   as   Business   Development   Manager.   Here   he   worked closely     with     motivated,     entrepreneurial     individuals     across operations,      finance,      business      development      and      senior management.   He   followed   this   with   a   similar   role   back   at   Ernst & Young. In   December   2001   Shaylesh   became   the   Chief   Financial   Officer for   Flight   Centre   (UK)   Limited,   where   he   was   instrumental   in   helping   the   company   grow   its commission   base   from   £11m   to   £22m.   The   position,   which   also   involved   becoming   Company Secretary   for   all   UK   operations,   was   new   to   Flight   Centre   in   the   UK   and   involved   strategic, commercial   and   operational   development   and   management   involvement.   The   Flight   Centre (UK) Limited doubled in size during his 3 years at the company. Between   July   2004   and   October   2007,   Shaylesh   continued   to   climb   the   business   ladder,   taking commercial   roles   at   COLT   UK,   London;   You   Me   TV   Plc,   London;   and   ultimately   Commercial Development at TESCO plc. Initially   inspired   to   leave   a   greener   and   healthier   legacy   for   the   next   generation,   Shaylesh Patel   founded   Healthy   Planet   in   2007.      Shaylesh   and   the   ASTOP   team   has   built   a   strong network   of   ethical   players   in   the   property   and   charity   sectors.   During   his   time   at   Healthy Planet   and   since   becoming   independent,   in   2015,   Shaylesh   and   the   ASTOP   network   of   good causes   have   managed   400+   sites,   that   were   otherwise   unused,   for   the   benefit   of   both   the landlord and the community through charitable activities. ASTOP   has   helped   develop,   launch   and   advised   on   operating   numerous   initiatives   including award   winning   and   profile   boosting   social   activities   such   as   “Books   for   Free”;   “Stuff   for   Free”; “The   Fake   Shop”;   the   “Conservation   Community”;   a   Freecycle   depot   and   numerous   initiatives made possible through partnerships forged by ASTOP’s introductions.
