I inspire! Is the brainchild of Azmal Khan who, with Aim Skills Development, wanted to address the fact that many job seekers were disillusioned and felt that their voice was not being heard.
In attendance were special guests Stephen Timms, MP for East Ham, and Syed Ahmed, Director of Savortex and former contestant on BBC’s The Apprentice.
It was a wonderful night of stories, sharing and inspiration, and certainly an eye opener for the employers in the audience, including the Barts and London NHS Trust and also businesses from the Newham Chamber of Commerce.
The employers were surprised at how moving and inspirational the presentations were, and indeed several of them wanted to find out more about the job seekers.
The Job Seekers
The inspirational speakers were:
Syed Ahmed said of the event,
“I am truly inspired by the job seekers that spoke on the night. I wish you and them all the best, and I have no doubt all will be hugely successful.”
Also impressed by the evening was Sadia Ahmed of Barts and London NHS Trust,
“An inspiring event with some heartfelt messages. Great to see jobseekers on stage talk about their personal challenges and what inspires them.”
Azmal will be expanding on the “I inspire!” concept in 2016.
