On Monday, 23 November 2015, Diamond Life Impact Projects held its first partners invitational event for the I’m A Survivor (IMAS) Campaign & Network Strategy at Parker’s Comedy & Jive in Montecasino, Fourways. We were pleased to host and present to executives from a number of top companies in sectors that included pharmaceutical, vehicle hire, accounting, banking, insurance, luxury goods, IT, energy, human resources, and accommodation. There were also representatives from other NGOs and faith-based organisations present.
Dr. Stella Potgieter served as the Programme Director, and the programme included opening remarks by Joe Parker, IMAS Presentation by Jake Scott, Testimony by IMAS Ambassador Portia Weni, IMAS Campaign Presentation by Ken H. Simmons, II, IMAS Sponsorship Presentation by Tanya Du Toit, Closing Remarks by Sam Phillips, and David Nowitz giving the Vote of Thanks. A special feature of the evening was provided by Vally singing two songs live, ‘Dreams’ and “I’m A Survivor”.
The event was very successful, and meaningful networking and expressions of support were achieved. We are most grateful to all that were in attendance, our Board Members, Team IMAS, Red Letter Entertainment, Vally, and last but not least Parker’s Comedy & Jive for graciously providing the venue.
