Iqbal Wahhab

Founder at The Cinnamon Club and Roast restaurants

My work philosophy:

Don’t let others tell you that you can’t achieve your ambitions.

My Roles and Responsibilities

I have exited out of Roast and am looking at new opportunities in the restaurant world.


I have created a few businesses over the last 30 years, including a PR firm, a magazine publishing company and most notably The Cinnamon Club and Roast.

Why am I on Connect?

The word mentor wasn't around when I started in business and I would have hugely benefited from having access to one as I wouldn't have made many of the mistakes I did. There are significant social and economic benefits from enabling people who don't have access from friends or family to learn from.

Whom would I like to mentor?

People starting a business, ex-offenders, anyone who is facing difficulties in getting going.
