This black history month, Generation Success are proud to welcome a panel of leading BME business leaders who will be sharing their career journey and secrets to their success with the Generation Success network. 


Our Speakers:

Catherine George, EMEA Campus Lead, Amazon Web Services 

Ursula Henry, Head of Membership and Funding, Banking Standards Board (BSB)

Yvonne Thompson, Steering Commitee Member, Women’s Equality Party UK 

Why attend?

In an ideal world, the month would not be necessary, because educational establishments and the national curriculum would fully recognise and appreciate the contribution of black people throughout history. Sadly, that is not the case. 

Black History month is an opportunity to share with the world vast contributions from BME leaders. It’s a time to demonstrate pride in the BME community’s creativity, respect for its intellectual prowess and a celebration of its cultural identity which is far too often misrepresented, when it is not being ignored, in the mainstream. 

This is an opportunity to hear from a panel of leading BME business figures and discover their secrets to success. If you were ever put off going after your dream job, senior position or starting your own business , please think again.

This event is about breaking all those barriers and providing you with guidance.

  • Be inspired by the accomplishments by todays leading BME business leaders 
  • Build connections
  • Gain guidance to exceed your aspirations
