Receiving a Community Honorary Award from BBI
Last week, I joined fellow business leaders, political leaders and entrepreneurs at the Black Business Initiative Awards held at the Hilton Hotel, Tower Bridge. Around 250 guests enjoyed an evening of entertainment, delicious food, networking and a fashion show.
I was honoured to be presented with the Diaspora Community Honorary Award alongside former Labour Minister Tony Benn. While receiving the award, I noted that we could make London a better place to work and live for all people by building bridges among different communities; a lot of sustainable efforts are still needed so we can benefit fully from London’s diversity.
Later, I was thrilled to present John Charles of ‘Catering to Order’ with the Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
Everyone had a wonderful time and I look forward to next year’s awards. Thanks to Sunny Lambe and his team for a fantastic evening and celebration of London’s diverse talent.
