The hugely popular ABCurry Club returns on Thursday 29th November 2018 starting at 5:30pm at the prestigious Virgin Money offices in Gosforth, Newcastle.

The evening will focus on diversity and we will hear from Tim Arthur Virgin Money’s Creative Director and ABC Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Shahda Khan MBE who will both share insights on how diversity can help organisations thrive.  Ammar Mirza will showcase ABC 10th Anniversary Celebrations planned for 2019 and reflecting on an incredible year for ABC and partners.  

As usual members of the ABC team will be your host for the evening  who will provide an update on how ABC can help you  and how you can get involved in the organisation and connect with the vibrant Asian community.

Please note this is the final ABCurry Club of 2018 and that these events are usually sold-out and we would recommend reserving your space early to avoid disappointment. You must reserve your space by registering via the EventBrite button below or alternatively emailing events@abconnexions.org 

The Event is free to ABC Members and Supporters with any donations being made on the evening to the PIE Project Charity.

This is a unique opportunity to engage with some of the most prominent and influential people in the North East. All joined by members of the Asian and wider Business community, with one common vision – to Connect, Support, and Promote, one another.

“Whilst working for Virgin Money I’ve become acutely aware of why diversity in the work place is so vital and so powerful. Richard Branson probably says it best.

“I am truly proud that Virgin has at its core a culture which embraces and celebrates the individuality of our people. We actively encourage our people to be their true self at work as it is critical to creating a happy and successful company”
Tim Arthur Creative Director Virgin Money

ABC continues to support long-term unemployed individuals to explore Self-Employment through the WiseSteps ‘Step up into Enterprise’ Programme helping launch 50 new start-ups this year.
One of the participants that ABC has supported is Steve Wilkes – Steve said

  “I was mentored by Chris Orrick from ABC through a period of deep changes in physical health and forward intentions for work. ABC gave me very firm guidance and support through regular informal meet ups. Chris was frank, serious and honest yet friendly and very inspiring. The workshops ABC organised for me were highly relevant and gave me the confidence to form my limited company. I am now well on the way to succeeding thanks in no small part to the proactive support of ABC.”
