Event Details

Angelic Troublemaking with Bisi Alimi

The fundraising landscape is changing as we know it. Now is the time we need to come together, more than ever, to continue to make the world a better place. Join us to listen to the amazing Bisi Alimi, an ‘Angelic Troublemaker’ sharing his story on how he makes people stand up, listen and engage.

As we continue to build a bubble or get aligned with ideology that suits our views, we create an even more divided world, one where we hear what we want to hear and never listen. The ability to listen and hear opposing views is challenging, with Brexit and Trump, it feels that the world is going back in time.

However, it is time we know that we are the change we need. That for us to get the world to a better place, we have to be Angelic Troublemakers, knowing that our ability to listen, understand and then engage with opposing views are part of making the world a better place

Like Margret Mead said: “Never doubt that a group of committed individuals can change the world”.

In his talk, Bisi Alimi will share his journey and how he is moving across the divide to engage with people who would rather not want to see someone like him. He will share his story as an openly gay man in Nigeria and as a Black man who is a refugee in the UK.

Bisi is a passionate and energetic public speaker with appearances on many TV stations, delivering multiple TEDx talks and ongoing Vlogger. Most recently he closed the 2017 IFC’s plenary and always leaves his audience asking for more. Do not miss your chance to listen to become inspired!
