In a bid to better his career, Reggie Nelson knocked on the doors of wealthy people in Kensington and Chelsea. When people came to the door, Reggie asked them how they amassed their wealth and what he could do to move up the career ladder.

Fast forward to today, he now has a successful career in the city, working for Legal and General.

Reggie’s story is part of a new film from the The Lord Mayor’s Appeal that┬átells the stories of Londoners from diverse socio-economic backgrounds, and looks at their personal journeys in a bid to help others.
