The Trinity Programme, in conjunction with NatWest and Black History Month, presents:


For too long, men of colour have struggled with the idea of being successful. Many struggle with their own sense of identity, masculinity and business success.

But a new generation of diverse entrepreneurs are emerging, and this empowering conference will launch a positive shift on what it means to be a man of colour in business!

Though this event is focused on men in business from diverse backgrounds, #we do gladly welcome the attendance of women too!

On the day:

This will be a full day of honest conversation, practical tips, insights and wisdom exploring the subject of wealth across 4 key areas of Financial, Physical, Mental and Spiritual.
