Compered by Konnie Huq, the high pro- file event featured a number of eminent speakers including Seamark founder Iqbal Ahmed OBE, Spice Business editor Enam Ali MBE, Founder British Curry Awards, Syed Ahmed entrepre- neur and contestant of Sir Allen Sugar’s “The Apprentice” and chef Aktar Islam, who addressed an audience of over 600 guests from across the region

and beyond. The audience was treated to inspirational speeches from these high profile British Bangladeshis, who related their journey to success with occasional touches of humour. One of the speakers caught the imagination of the audience when he said “But in their case none of these was present. Worse even, there was no institutional input, no master chef, no role model; their only capital was the taste of curry in their mouth”. Entertainment was provided by singers and dancers from Bangladesh, including the UK well- known artist, Porosh Moni.

Distinguished guests included His Excellency Dr Sayeedur Rahman
