Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Dreams
Sat 3 December 2016, 18:00 – 21:00 GMT
Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Dreams is a networking event created for Young People in London (UK). The idea of the event developed from my own personal experience of attending networking events but also because of the constant messages I receive from social media from young people asking to be connected to someone from my contacts for a project or a business matter.
Our aim is to encourage young people to follow their dreams despite their current background, circumstances or skills.
We want to create a platform for young people to connect, grow their network and work together in terms of:
Our mission is to create the leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow and our vision is create a database of young people in the UK and a platform for them to be recognised for their talents, accomplishments and contributions towards society.
We have three speakers who have a global prescence and a Q&A with them at the end.
1. Gershom Allen is our HEADLINE SPEAKER. Allen is a World Renown Speaker, a Lifestyle Coach and author. He is the CEO and Founder of Masterpiece Creations and has recently published his second book called 'Victory'. Gershom Allen is a college drop out and growing up he was told "his head was too hard to learn learn". He taught himself how to spell, type and read. He believes that whatever dreams you have they are all possible. It all starts with you loving yourself and believing in yourself.
2. Prince Wasim is an International Business Consultant, Entrepreneur and Motivational Speaker. He is the founder of 'Milk Sheikh' in Harlesden. Wasim is a huge inspiration to young people in London but mainly Brent where he resides. His entrepreneurial spirit and passion to inspire the younger generation has attracted the attention of SBTV CEO and Founder Jamal Edwards, Buzzfeed, ITV News, BBC News and The Voice Newspaper. Wasim's story has inspired young people to create their own wealth through business.
3. Samuell Benta is a creative pioneer, specialising in producing, writing and directing for Film and TV. He started off as an actor and has appeared in numerous high profile dramas such as: BBC's Eastenders E20, BBC's Silent Witness, BBC's The Cut, BBC's Hotel Babylon, Power Rangers Operation Overdrive just to name a few. After realising the repetitive stereotype roles on British TV for young black actors, he sought to change this by creating his own show 'All About The McKenzies' a black family sitcom for the web. Never having attended film or drama school he learned to pave his own path into the industry, learning to write, direct and produce. Over many doors shut, rejections and hardships, All About The McKenzies 6 years later is now on ITV2.
There will be buffet style catering, drinks (non-alcoholic) and tea. FREE OF CHARGE.
