Hi BYP Network!
We're delighted to be sharing what happened last week at our BYP x Accenture event last week, in collaboration with Accenture's African and Caribbean Network. Featuring special guest speaker, Akala, it was a night to remember.
We'll be hosting more so keep your eyes peeled for our next event, and sign up to our newsletter at www.byp-network.com

On Thursday 20th June, we were delighted to welcome our BYP members to Accenture's offices to have the opportunity to network with each other, members of Accenture's African & Caribbean Network and recruiters from the organization.
Each year, Accenture holds an annual flagship workshop which aims to inspire, celebrate & progress the exceptional talent in the Accenture African-Caribbean Network. This year’s Accelerate Day was all about being bold, taking risks and making positive change.
At 3pm, we opened the doors to guests eager to find out more about Accenture and BYP. After registering everyone, we settled in for a speech from headline speaker, Akala. The activist, rapper, journalist, author and all-round inspiration set the room alive with electric energy, and guests were left in awe from his wise words.
One of our takeaways from his speech was: “Black crimes are collectivised, black successes are individualised.” - a statement that brings home why our motto is all about changing the black narrative.
Following Akala's inspiring speech, we listened to Accenture's African & Caribbean Network Exec Sponsors. The evening followed with networking and delicious canapés.
The night was a great success, and we are grateful to our brilliant partners at Accenture for being so supportive. For those who met Andrew Pearce, Managing Director at Accenture, we're delighted to share that he'll be speaking at our Senior Leadership Conference in September. To secure attendance, buy your ticket here.
We hope to see many of you at our next event so keep your eyes peeled out for the next date! Thanks to our fantastic sponsors Accenture for the space and opportunity to showcase what's next for our network.
We can't wait to see what the future holds.
