The UK Business Seminar (http://bit.ly/afZgRd) will take place at the end of March 2010 at the Copthorne Hotel near Gatwick. The two day seminar, which will show professional people how to improve their businesses, is supporting World In Need's school in Kenya. A percentage of the seminar fees will be donated to the school, and all those attending will be told about the school and encouraged to become supporters of its work.
The school, The Nancy George Academy, is situated in the rural district of Soy, Northern Kenya. This is a poor area, people struggle to earn enough to feed their families, and the school is a valuable asset. Not only do the children who attend receive a very good education which can set them up for a brighter future with a good career, but they also receive a nutritious meal each day. For some, it is the only food they will have that day.
The school was opened in January 2009 with just one pupil. A year later, there are 123 children attending the school. It is growing rapidly as its reputation for good teaching spreads. The support of the UK Business Seminar is invaluable in enabling us to maintain the standard of teaching, and very much appreciated.
World In Need's link to the UK Business Seminar was first formed through Simon Jordan, an award winning marketing consultant who will give a Masterclass in Effective Marketing at the seminar. Simon has spent over 20 years working with clients such as Sky TV, Virgin, BMW, BBC, Wilkinson Sword, ICI and B&Q. WIN is proud to be associated with Simon, and we hope the links continue into the future.
