This is another of our small. round-table conversations. It picks up on some of the topics raised at last month's meeting and since - but newcomers are welcome to come along.
Last month Dele Williams who is Chief Executive Officer of National Institute for African Studies (a UK based Thinktank) came to join the group for the first time. Dele is usually pre occupied with ideas and concepts for achieving Sustainable Livelihoods for people experiencing poverty in Africa, and within UK African Diaspora communities.
Everyone appreciated having Dele in the group and we all agreed that we'd like him to be the speaker for our first Africa group webinar. Subseqently Dele and I met to discuss plans and explore overlapping interests (I'm co-founder of this group and various UK-Africa initiatives,mostly under the name of Dadamac).
We touched on many topics relating to things as they are in practice, and how we might help each other in future (including the webinar and an event Dadamac is planning for January). We were both keen to continue our conversation, and to enable others to join in if they want to. Continuing it at the next group meeting seemed the natural thing to do. You are welcome to join us.
