LONDON, November 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Helping students, professionals and entrepreneurs beat the current economic blues to achieve their professional and personal potential is at the heart of a unique event.
An evening workshop aimed at empowering young professionals to exceed their goals and break glass ceilings as well as expanding their personal networks will take place at BPP Holborn and is organised by not for profit organisation Generation Success.
Founder and Director James Adeleke, says: "Barriers are both real and perceived; sometimes it's lacking the confidence to follow through with your aspirations other times you may not have received coaching to progress to the next stage of your career. Breaking Barriers is about bridging the gap from where you are to reach your ultimate career goal."
The event will include keynote speeches about Breaking Barriers by Richard Millar (CEO, UK + Regional President, Europe at Hill + Knowlton Strategies ) and June O Sullivan (CEO London Early Years Foundation).
Delegates will then have the option to join one of eleven skills development workshops facilitated by some of the UK's industry experts. They include harnessing technology to grow your business; improving soft skills, online branding, telling your story - finding the right words, interview techniques, leadership, managing stress, evolution from start-up to corporate and a discussion with business mentors and entrepreneurs. We currently have facilitators from American Express, Sage, Dome Advisory, Msl Group as well as independent experts.
"Generation Success has played a massive part in the development of my business, Socios Media. I attended the first Breaking Barriers Conference in 2014 and two years later, both I and the business have broken more than a few barriers. Socios Media is honoured to be the media sponsor/partner for Generation Success. The team and I are excited to be part of an event that inspires and develops this generation and the next." Alex Pemberton,Director Socios Media

Notes to editors
About Generation Success Generation Success was launched by successful businessman James Adeleke. A law graduate of BPP University, London, and 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."
