An event described as the ‘first of its kind’ was held at Northwood School on Saturday 12th November organised by The KSIMC of London.

It was great to see the talent, creativity and abilities in our community all under one roof supporting and drawing inspiration from one another. We are truly blessed to have such a vibrant community with many entrepreneurs following the pursuit of their dreams and passion.
