Power of 9. 9th Year Dinner and Awards Ceremony 20/09/2018


It is a pleasure to announce that Nusrat Ghani will be attending the event as one of our guest speakers. She has been a very influential figure throughout her career, engaging in programmes like Age UK and Breakthrough Breast Cancer. In the 2015 general election Nusrat Ghani had made history by becoming the first female MP to hold the seat of Wealden. Nusrat Ghani had become the first woman minister to speak from the House of Commons Dispatch box.

We are proud of Asian women’s contribution to business and politics in the UK and it is important to continue promoting these achievements as women all over the UK should have the opportunity to get involved with business and politics.

It is important that we work together to continue encouraging diversity to help recognise the contribution of the Asian community in the UK.


We would like to inform everyone that the dress code for the evening is Black Tie.

ABC is working with various organisations in India to develop bi-lateral trade links through the Federation of Asian Business which was launched at the House of Commons in March 2018.  Our most recent visit was a wholly women in business led delegation to Haryana and there is now a return visit arranged for the Chief Minister of Haryana to visit the Northern Powerhouse.
