Inspiring Young Leaders 2010
A unique event from African and Caribbean Young Enterprise.
A high-profile event to inspire young leaders from African and Caribbean backgrounds will take place on May 6th from 5.30pm until 9.00pm at Bristol’s Pierian Centre in Portland Square, St Paul’s.
Presented by African and Caribbean Young Enterprise (ACYE), and hosted by students from University of the West of England, the groundbreaking event ‘Inspiring Young Leaders 2010’ will feature a selection of distinguished speakers. The keynote speaker will be the High Sheriff of the City of Bristol, Mrs. Peaches Golding, OBE. Formerly Deputy Campaign Director of Race for Opportunity and later Regional Director of Business in the Community (South West), Mrs.Golding is the country's first-ever female black High Sheriff.
Supporting the event, ‘Inspiring Young Leaders 2010’, Peaches Golding says:
“The level of creativity and innovation is as high in black communities as in others. The challenge within our black communities is to translate those talents into commercially excellent opportunities.”
Other guest speakers include accomplished entrepreneur Piers Linney, joint CEO of Outsourcery, a leading UK mobile communications company and former lawyer, investment banker and Government REACH role model for young black men. The success Piers has achieved as an entrepreneur was recognised in the Power List 2010, which is sponsored by JP Morgan and Thomson Reuters and identifies him as one of the most influential black people in Britain today.
“I never met a professional with African-Caribbean heritage in the City and have encountered very few black business people with institutional financial backing, yet young African and Caribbean entrepreneurs have an enormous contribution to make in business”.
Other guest speakers include young entrepreneur Andre Campbell, who at just 21 founded his first start up, Enfuse Youth, a youth led consultancy that aims to improve the lives of young people.
ACYE Founders, Karl Belizaire and Carol Quaye say:
