Symphony Hall Birmingham is to host to Future Faces Awards Dinner, which celebrates rising professionals from the Birmingham area who are committed to developing their careers. The young professionals’ arm of Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce (GBCC) will celebrate record growth over the past year at their annual dinner at Symphony Hall on 31st August.
Future Faces, managed by Anna Assinder, has more than doubled its membership in the past 12 months and last year its annual dinner sold out for the first time with entries for their awards growing by 148 per cent. Future Faces welcomes people from all sectors seeking to share experiences, to learn from business leaders and to work with their peer groups to develop new skills, knowledge and best practice. There are monthly events providing training around essential business skill areas as well as fun and relaxed networking opportunities designed to allow members to expand their network of contacts. The signature event in the Future Faces calendar is the Dinner & Awards which is now in its fourth year, the event gives young professionals throughout the region the chance to receive recognition for excellence in their sectors.
Birmingham is the youngest city in Europe, with under 25s accounting for nearly 40% of the population. There are over 400 schools, 15 universities and three university colleges within one hour’s drive of the city.
Paul Faulkner, chief executive of the GBCC spoke of his excitement about the upcoming event.
Future Faces’ membership reflects what a brilliant array of young talent there is in Greater Birmingham. Holding the dinner at Symphony Hall is really special... the Future Faces dinner will be a chance to experience something they may not have done before.
