Tanya Dennis | Eventsuncut

Alongside her six years of International conference and exhibition management experience (in-house), working within a variety of sectors including Interior Design, Aviation, Finance, Technology and Health Care; at 28, Tanya is also Founder of Event Tech start up Eventsuncut.

Tanya had the vision for the event promotion and directory business www.eventsuncut.com when she struggled to identify reputable event suppliers for the entertainment events she project manages in her spare time. Over the 5 years since its initial launch, Eventsuncut has evolved into an event finder for young people in London to easily locate events that interest them, from Coding workshops to club nights. Living in London should mean that there is never a shortage of places to go, but quite often people don’t know where to find out about these events! Tanya would also like to see Eventsuncut become a trusted review and news site, and an app.

Outside of her day job, Tanya often joins charity projects as an event or venue manager; most recently Oxjam Brixton which raised £6800.

In 2015 Tanya was accepted as an inaugural mentee in Fay Sharpe’s FastForward15 mentoring scheme which aims to inspire, encourage and empower women in the events, hospitality and related industry to be the best they can be: http://www.fastforward15.co.uk

Lalita Devi Purbhoo Junggee | Nineteen Fifty Design & Print Co Ltd

My name is Lalita Purbhoo-Junggee. I am 28 years old, married and the mother of two kids. I am the co-founder of 1950 Design & Print Co Ltd, which is located in Pailles, Mauritius.

I started my career as a trainee reporter at sixteen. Following high-school, I began work at a top newspaper in Mauritius. After eight years of working full-time, I decided to take on the adventure of becoming an entrepreneur.

Together with my husband, we started a large format printing and advertising company. Step by step, we have expanded our operations, while sticking to our core values and principles. Our major goal is to have the biggest positive impact we can on the environment. Living in an island nation, we see first hand how much of an impact man made climate change is having on the island. From severe droughts to extreme heat.

My biggest personal strengths are my focus and followthrough, my ability to commit to a task and see it through to completion. I am a very intuitive and curious person who loves to learn, problem-solve and find innovative solutions for everyday problems. I am very open-minded, optimistic, hard working and these traits are very beneficial in a career oriented around creativity and design.

Cynthia Davis

Cynthia Davis | BAME Recruitment

I am a passionate female entrepreneur who is determined to make a difference for people from under represented backgrounds within the workforce. I have worked within the recruitment industry for over 18 years and worked for a number of organisations including BT, Carphone Warehouse, Talk Talk and at ITV for Creative Access.  Throughout my career, no matter what organisation I worked in, there were never many people who looked like me working in similar positions. I faced barriers in my career and when I wanted to move up the ladder, the only way for me was to move out due to the lack of opportunity to progress.

I found that it wasn’t just myself. A lot of people who came from a similar background to me from ethnic minority, or from other under-represented backgrounds had similar issues. I started to look at organisations more closely and started delving into the data. It soon became clear  that a lot of organisations were not as diverse as they thought they were. Whilst there were lots of people who looked like me at a certain level, at the hierarchy the numbers significantely reduced. I’m a great believer in being part of the change that you want to see in the world and so armed with this, I decided to set up my own business. I felt that my recruitment experience, excellent market knowledge and work within the diversity networks could enable me to make a difference.
