LONDON, April 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
This year, local youth opportunities group Generation Success, has been working hard to host a series of inspirational and informative events designed to help underprivileged young people to forge contacts within various business communities and discover what it takes to establish a successful career. For the latest event, which will take place on Tuesday 12 April 2016, the team have invited some of the UK's leading legal lights to share their career journey and learnings with the Generation success network.
In attendance will be:
- Daniel Winterfeldt, Head of International Capital Markets and Diversity & Inclusion Partner at CMS Cameron McKenna
- Miranda Brawn - Barrister, Founder of the Miranda Brawn Diversity Leadership Foundation and Vice-Chair of the Black Cultural Archives
- Sheikh Bilal Khan - Co-Chairman and Partner of Dome Advisor, Uk Catalyst at UK Trade & Investment and Special Advisor to Chairman and CEO, Middle East Association.
- James Berry - MP
Each panel member will discuss their experiences within the legal profession, before taking questions from the floor.
The aim of the event is to show young people what it takes to make a career within the law, so as well as telling their personal stories, each speaker will give their top tips on how to succeed and provide the advice they wish that they'd been given when they were just starting out, before taking questions from the audience. There will also be the opportunity for peer-to-peer conversation in the networking area after the panel discussion.
A not-for-profit organisation, the goal at the heart of Generation Success is to ensure that young people from every background have access to the support they need to develop the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to thrive in the modern work place. This is something close to the heart of James Berry, MP for Kingston and Surbiton, who is sponsoring the event; 'As an MP, I want the very best for our country, and in my view that means investing in our young people. While our schools, colleges and universities do a wonderful job, there is a large gap between our education providers and the business sector. It can be extremely difficult for young people to bridge it. The work of Generation Success is helping with this, providing potentially talented people to discover their niche and thrive.'
'It is a pleasure to speak at the Generation Success Climbing the Law Ladder event. I am looking forward to sharing my unconventional story and success tips to help inspire and motivate the audience who are considering a career in law,' says Barrister Miranda Brawn.
'The ethos of Generation Success,' adds the organisation's founder, James Adeleke. 'Is that the only limit to an individual's attainments should be personal ambition. We want to create a world where young people are given the means to be the very best that they can be. Our Power Series events are just one small link in the chain, but put together with our other work, we hope that they'll help to make a difference.' Event details:

Notes to Editors:
Generation Success was launched by successful business man James Adeleke. A law graduate of BPP University, London, James has enjoyed a varied career in business development. He was inspired to found Generation Success following the London riots of 2011 - himself a member of what tabloid media were calling 'the lost generation', he decided it was time to start reclaiming the future for today's youth. Rather than laying blame and pointing fingers, James wanted to find ways to tackle the roots of society's problems: food poverty; deprivation; educational and employment inequality. Generation Success is James' way of helping to ensure that every young person has the chance to shine.
'I truly believe that we are limited by the boundaries of our minds,' says Adeleke. 'So I am always trying to expand mine - and to help others to do the same.'
