He has successfully completed numerous projects for both public and private sector clients in the UK and abroad. As a business psychologist, senior partner, and co-founder of Pearn Kandola, his expertise lies in understanding and reducing bias, which he explores in his acclaimed book "The Value of Difference: Eliminating Bias in Organizations" (2012). Binna is also a co-author of other books, including "Managing the Mosaic," which received special recognition at the 1994 Management Book of the Year Awards. His most recent book, "Racism at Work" (2018), delves into the subtleties and complexities of bias in the workplace, focusing on its impact on recruitment, leadership perceptions, and the intersection of gender and race.

As a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA), he is widely recognized as one of the UK's top business psychologists. Binna is also a regular media contributor, having appeared on various news outlets such as Sky News, BBC Breakfast, Channel 4 News, and Radio 4 Today Show.

"Binna has definitely whet the appetite of our Sponsor Teams and Chairs to delve further into their conscious and unconscious bias around the areas of diversity in the recruitment and appointment process onto our Boards." — Genevieve Bradbury. Strategic HR, DEFRA
"A compelling argument for a re-think in how organisations approach diversity" — Rob Moss
