Event description



It is with great excitement and pleasure that we bring to you 'I AM INSPIRED’ 1st Anniversary'! On the 24th February 2017!

As you may or may not already know, ‘I Am Inspired’ was created to enable parents, their children & people alike to come together at a seminar and be inspired by Thought Thinking Leaders, Motivators, Speakers and Entrepreneurs, some who are just like 'You' and who can identify with the same struggles and fears.

Speakers start from the tender age of 9 upwards which coincides with the age of members of the audience in attendance. That being said at our Black History 'I AM INSPIRED' Special October 21st 2017, we saw members of the audience as young as 3 years old who sat patiently throughout the event. He also contributed when asked if he knew what he wanted to be and confidently stated he wanted to be a 'Chef'!

At 'I Am Inspired' Speakers and those alike share their journey of life, while Inspiring the audience giving them something to think about, about themselves, their creative future, dreams and desires.

Over the last year we have showcased over 21 different types of Motivational Speakers, Entrepreneurs, Business Owners, Authors, Finance Educators and several others form the age of 8 upwards. It has been very Inspiring to say the least, especially for us the 'I Am Inspired' Team to see these wonderful people benefiting from the Platform that ‘I Am Inspired’ has provided to them to be able to give back to the community alongside the reaction and benefits attributed to those who attended.

What a joy to receive hand written notes from young people aged 9 explaining how ‘Inspired’ they felt within the first 15 minutes of hearing a Speaker share how they created their own clothing logos or how they chose their business names and concept their ideas, as well as adults being inspired by young people and other speakers to make challenging changes in their own lives.

At I AM INSPIRED Anniversary we will do it all over again with another set of Wonderful ASPIRING and INSPIRING Speakers, Entrepreneurs and others alike to celebrate with us all our first Year of ‘I AM INSPIRED’!
