Last week I was privileged to attend the 2016 Powerlist Influencers Dinner hosted by Powerful Media at the V&A museum. The event was in partnership with Lloyds Banking Group and Ernst & Young, with Thompson Reuters as the main sponsor.
The Powerlist is a yearly publication which highlights the top 100 most influential Britons of African and Caribbean Heritage. It also highlights individuals who are considered rising stars in their fields and as such are pegged to themselves feature on the list in the near future. The number one individual on the Powerlist this year was none other than Lord Lieutenant of Greater London, Ken Olisa. The list also recognised the likes of Sir Lenny Henry (Actor and campaigner), Steve McQueen (Film Director), Lewis Hamilton (Three-time Formula 1 World Champion), Adrian Joseph (MD, Enterprise Analytics Services EMEA, Google) and many more successful people.
