Review of the “Think Sponsorship” event at GBP South London Chapter

                                                          Think Sponsorship


Hello Everyone!

Here is a short review of the “Think Sponsorship” event we had in the South London chapter yesterday the 26th of March 2015.

Firstly, I would like to thank the time conscious attendees, who were ready to start at 6.30pm prompt! Thank you, Yemisi Fibersinma-Children’s book Author  and Kehinde Solu-Events planner!

I also want to thank ESQ Bar and 805 Restaurants for always supporting and believing that the way forward for Businesses is supporting one another.

Club members, all looked stunning!


Thanks to Bestman games, for partnering with us via the “City of Lagos” Monopoly games. You can see photos of the lucky winners below.

After the networking, we had the opportunity to stand up and Introduce ourselves to each other, which was quite Interesting.  Toyin Davidson-Ero opened up the short speeches for the night. She spoke on Property (yes she’s the expert).   I followed with “Think Sponsorship” and touched on all the secrets within a very lean presentation.  Don’t worry if you missed it, as we will tour  other branches with the same topic.

Meanwhile, I have a question to leave you with this morning, and I think you should think about it, answer it and write it down!

What is your business differentiator? This may be your deal breaker!

Question: How do you develop a  business commonwealth?

Answer: By working towards gaining trade surplus for the defined target group.

Question: What do I as an Individual small business owner of African descent or a supporter of Africa need to do to help make this a reality.

Answer: About 3 years ago I came across a document that stated that less than 3% of what black people earned stayed within the black community. This means that for every £1,000 earned or received only £30 stayed with another black person, explained in another way it means out of every £1,000 earned , £970 went to people and businesses that are not of your “Commonwealth”  What this means is that one of the reasons why you ask people within the black community to invest or support you financially and they ask “No” is primarily because the money doesn’t stay!

So, to answer your question, despite the shoddy work or dishonest work you might have experienced from one , ten or one hundred black people you need to carefully identify people within your community that are not shoddy or dishonest and can deliver what you need done. You need to patronize them more and likewise they you.

Plus: With the raised awareness of this Issue, Businesses and Individuals Interested in aiding economic growth amongst Africans and Africa are Invited to participate. Just like the sloganWe need trade not grant aid



Observe, where and how you personally spend over the next 30 days and find out if you know someone in your community and commonwealth that could deliver the same goods or serve for you!

Question: Is this not separatist?

Answer: No! One of the goals of the GBP Business club is to make sure our members, contribute more to our local society and economy  . Business is Great in this country and we need to take advantage , this can only be done if we trade with each other more so we are in a better position to Invest more and make life how we want it to be. Maintaining only 3% of your Income is not acceptable. Being part of a business network is a healthy way to grow collectively in business.

If what you have read above is the type of club you would like to be part of then:

  We have business clubs opening up all the time coming to your locality, There are 3 types of membership levels available
