According to some delegates, the event was very well organised and it offered the opportunityto hear from excellent speakers and to network at the highest level.

The Mayor and the Ambassador of the Ivory Coast went on the stage to congratulate and thank Ouverture for such an initiative and offered their full support to the organisation.

The audience had the opportunity to hear Mike Royal address the main topic of the evening: ‘How to overcome social barriers and build a successful community’. He delivered an excellent speech educating and challenging the audience at the same time with some practical evidence based on his life journey and his experience as the Director of TLG. The conference saw two more speakers take the stage.
