Organised by the Muslim Council of Britain, Britain’s leading Muslim umbrella body, The Muslim Leadership Dinner brings together leaders from all walks of British Muslim life. Leadership comes in many forms and from a variety of sources.
After two successful Leadership Dinners, in 2010 and 2011 respectively, the third annual Muslim Leadership Dinner has now become a feature in the British Muslim calendar.
Last year, the second Muslim Leadership Dinner brought together over 400 community organisers and activists, business leaders and future leaders. Chief guests included; Peter Oborne, the Chief Political Commentator for the Daily Telegraph and Mehdi Hasan, the Senior Political Editor for the New Statesman, as well as many other senior figures in the field of journalism and politics from Britain.
In March 2012, the third Muslim Leadership Dinner aims to celebrate London hosting the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. We hope that this year’s theme will recognise British Muslim contributions to Sport, as well as encouraging Muslim communities opening their doors to welcome the rest of the world to Britain during the 2012 Games.
We are pleased to have Baroness Grey-Thompson as a confirmed speaker. Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson is a Welsh athlete and TV presenter, over her career she won a total of 16 Paralympic medals (11 Gold), held over 30 world records and won the London Marathon six times.
