Ross is a BAFTA award-winning documentary maker, actor and author, who rose to prominence in the BBC1 soap EastEnders (1985-). Since 2006, he has received international recognition for his award-winning and hard-hitting documentaries.

After training at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, Ross began his acting career on the stage alongside acting greats John Thaw and Richard Wilson. He soon moved from the stage to the silver screen, starting with small parts in Emmerdale Farm (1972-1989), London’s Burning (1986-2002), and Birds of a Feather (1989-2010). He is best-known for his multi award-winning portrayal of Grant Mitchell in EastEnders, first between 1990-1999, returning in 2005 for a year, and once again in 2016.

From starring in a training video for the Ministry of Defence to completely embedding himself in the toughest of situations, via a stint on Albert Square, Ross has enjoyed a wide range of television roles.

We had some great feedback from our event yesterday. We always try to end the day on a completely different note, giving the guys and gals a guest who has an interesting story to tell…and without doubt, Ross Kemp has a story to tell. He went down a storm with the attendees, one comment being “he’s one of the best speakers I have seen and I must have seen about 40 plus”. Very captivating and obviously very passionate about what he does. Sandra Lowe, 2Plan Wealth Management
