Glastonbury for Education & Career Professionals.
One week ago today I was involved in a fantastic three day international education and careers conference organised by the wonderful Dr. Deirdre Hughes OBE. It was by far the conference with most diverse high profile speakers and panel members that I have ever seen or been involved in, which is a testament to the #authenticleadership shown by Deirdre and the team. With an great opening keynote by Lord Victor Adebowale CBE, which set the tone for the conference and expert input from people including, Alice Barnard, Anthony Mann, Nick Chambers, Morenike Ajayi MBA, FCPFA,Amarjit Basi and international experts and ministers including James P. Sampson, Anuradha Bakshi, Sareena Hopkins, David Carney and Jennifer Tardy, but the reality is there is too many to mention! My presentation was on the impact of #BLMmovement and #covid on employment and careers of minority groups and can I say a big thanks for the positive feedback and I look forward to exploring #newopportunities as part of my #newcompany www.blackstarinc.co.uk
Well done to all delegates that attended the event and your active engagement...the chat function was moving at turbo pace and as one delegate described it as ' equivalent of the Glastonbury Festival for education and careers professionals'
