Networking Event for Professional and Business Black Africans - Connect4Bet...
Tue 6 June 2017, 18:30 – 21:30 BST
(SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY AVAILABLE - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
We are very excited to invite you to our next FREE networking event which hopes to bring together African professionals and entreprenuers from different fields for the purpose interacting and connecting hopefully improving the life chances of black Africans living in UK. Why not join us in a free and safe environment to network in an evening full of inspiration, learning and sharing.
Our belief is that there are some members of our African community who will thrive and succeed should more opportunities be available to them. Opportunities such as those presented by a good reference, an internal sponsor, a mentor or a coach, work experience, shadowing, success and inspiring stories from other community members and fairly affordable development programmes etc. Where these adults take the opportunities and succeed, they will be assured of an above poverty life and the children therefore born to those families will most likely be spared of a poor life start at least.
Past events provided opportunities for some to learn and develop skills, meet new contacts who have helped with jobs, mentorship, advices and more. One of such is an example where an attendee of our October 2016 event developed new connection during the event who helped with interview preparation for a Global law firm which was successful and now starting a new job in the new year.

We are glad and appreciative to be hosted at the City Hall this time by another inspirational African member of the London Assembly - Kemi Badenoch.
Kemi is the deputy Chair of the Economy Committee and member of both the Police and Crime Committee and the Transport Committees. She also provides regular mentoring to women who wish to pursue careers in technology, and has been a motivational speaker for the global TEDx programme.
This time we will also be joined by the wonderful Chinelo Bally - dressmaker, author, blogger and freehand cutter.
Chinelo Bally was a finalist in the 2014 series of BBC2’s The Great British Sewing Bee. Before appearing on the show, Chinelo had never used a sewing pattern. She wowed the judges with her ability to create stylish, fitted garments using a freehand cutting method that was taught to her by an aunt. Her innovative freehand cutting method, which avoids the need for patterns, and unashamedly glamorous designs have won her numerous admirers. In addition to running sewing courses, Chinelo produces bespoke garments for private clients, from her studio in East London. Her first book, Freehand Fashion, was published by Pavilion in November 2015
Other key speakers,contributors and special guest will be confirmed as at when arrangement is firmed.
Remember, ‘the best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others’ - Mahatma Gandhi. Come and receive whilst preparing to be a giver too!
