Hello Readers,
 
 On Friday the 20th of July, Generation Success hosted the Summer Connect 2018. Held at their beautiful rooftop office in London. The event celebrated the commitment towards diversity, equality, and inclusion. It was a wonderful evening of inspiration, insights, and opportunities. Our aspiring leaders were able to network, build relationships and celebrate success. Attendees heard talks and success stories from some of the UK’s finest business experts. With drinks, delicious Moroccan food and live DJ, it ended a perfect evening!

“Disability is not the same as Inability,” said Naqi Halder Rizvi, Retail Analyst (Barclays). Supported along his journey by Generation Success he told the audience of his story. Being a blind international student who never let his barriers stop him from achieving his dream. A powerhouse of self-belief and confidence, his talk inspired everyone in the audience.
 
Attendees were then welcomed onto the rooftop area and enjoyed some beautiful city views. From delicious Moroccan food and refreshing drinks to Live DJ and raffle tickets fun- it was lovely watching everyone having fun.
 
Celebrating diversity and championing inclusion is integral to Generation Success. The Summer Connect 2018 was an amazing event. Welcoming, encouraging and with a powerful message to take back home. I can’t wait for the next one!
