The 100 Black Men of London and Exclusive Visions are proud to present:
The Rise of the Black Pound - Part II
A one day conference that will educate, encourage and empower Black Businesses and Community focused Individuals to connect the collective benefits of reinvesting the Black Pound within the Black Community.
This half-day conference will seek answers through a Panel Debate, Q&A, Call to Action and Networking. Questions will be asked on the day: Is the TV Series 'Empire' a positive example of Black business success? Should black consumers stop spending their money with businesses that do not support community causes or charities?
All attendees will receive the 100 Black Men of London's new free guide: "Why Start Up Businesses Fail & How to make sure yours doesn't."
As a special feature, the first 5 people to register will secure a place in the Mastermind Session - where they will get the opportunity to bring their business & entrepreneur challenges to the floor and benefit from the combined expertise of the panel to help them tackle and master those challenges.
If you are interested in seeing positive progress in the Black Community, book your ticket now for this motivating and inspiring event!

As an organisation led by Black men we are particularly focused on leadership and provide all our members and volunteers with training and development opportunities to improve skills and experience in Leadership, Mentoring, Project Management, Presentation & Communication, Team Building and more, making the 100 the place where Black men and women come to grow.
The 100 Black Men movement begun in New York City in 1963, when a concerned group of Black men came together to develop a local organisation to implement programmes designed to improve the quality of life in their community. These founding fathers included David Dinkins (who went on to become Mayor of New York), Dr Bill Haley and other community luminaries. The success of this initial organisation led to the establishment of other chapters all over the USA leading to the formation of the 100 Black Men of America, and the 100 Black Men International.
