African Culture & Health Awareness Day

Hello beautiful,

I recently found out about an event that looks quite interesting – so I thought I’d share the details with you!

Neter Vital  Health  and A-Mawu have come together to host their second African Culture & Health Awareness Day!

It will be held on Sunday, 27 October 2013 from 2pm to 8.30pm at Hilton London Tower Bridge, 5 More London Place, SE1 2BY.

A-Mawu is a  non-profit organization which aims to provide African  entrepreneurs a platform to showcase their business, offering opportunities to network and promote themselves. They transmit the love for Africa through arts, dance, fashion and business.

Neter Vital is a Natural Health organization which specialises in the manufacturing, retailing, and distribution of its own branded cosmetics including alternative and complimentary ailments. They are also known for the organising and running of workshops to provide and promote healthy living and general wellbeing.

Their show’s focus, which I’m quite excited about, is to showcase the best in African creative culture. I think that’s wonderful (perhaps my recent trip to Ghana has heightened my excitement for this type of event…)

They will be presenting workshops and activities in:

  • Natural Health – including diet / nutritional advice and updates
  • Beauty and Wellbeing (including beautician sessions for attendees)
  • Business and Enterprise Development
  • Networking & Social Media Marketing

I believe these events are needed because there are so many great businesses out there that need more exposure. I’d like to see more African and Caribbean businesses in the spotlight, so I hope these sessions are well attended.

They will also have speakers, including:

  • Julian Hall, Professional Speaker & #1 Best Selling Author
  • Stephen Ssali,  Director Of Mariandina Foundation Research
  • Sophia Bailey, Motivational Speaker

Other activities and entertainment will include:

  • African Fashion shows
  • Live music
  • Traditional African Dance (I’m not sure on the specifics of the dance yet)
  • Raffles and Giveaways

There will be stalls and vendors so take a little spending money!
