Kenny is the co-founder & Managing Director of ClearView Research Ltd, a leading-edge youth-led research company, who specialise in research focussing on young people and social impact evaluation. Through his work, Kenny conducts research and produces reports looking into several social issues such as crime, housing and political apathy. These reports have been influential in terms of changing the way decision-makers perceive these issues and these reports have been referenced in parliamentary debates. In 2014, Kenny was awarded the number one position of Rare Rising Stars 2014 and acknowledged for being the most outstanding black student in the UK. In 2015, he was one of 16 people from across Europe featured in the Commonwealth Young Achievers list.
As Director at Bite The Ballot, the party-neutral movement and registered youth democracy charity (its mission is to empower young people to evolve UK democracy) Kenny has worked on developing and executing national campaigns to get young people to register to vote and turn out to vote on election day. In 2014 BTB created the annual National Voter Registration Drive in the UK and since coordinating this campaign almost 2 million millennials have registered to vote. The most recent campaign ahead of the EU referendum called #TurnUp, was the most successful registration drive in any Western democracy (per capita) contributing towards 1.1 million under 34-year olds registering to vote. As part of this campaign, Kenny formed partnerships with a wide range of partners from private, public and charitable sectors such as: Twitter, Facebook, Uber, Deliveroo, Tinder, NCS and UK Youth.
