Come and celebrate with Mosaic in London!
Join us on Tuesday 16th June to help celebrate the achievements of our students, schools and mentors in the London and to thank you for your support.
The evening will celebrate the importance of mentoring and in particular mosaic’s mentors, their hard work and commitment to the young people we support as well as recognising the hard work Mosaic’s network, teachers and supporters continue to dedicate.
Keynote Speaker: Rear-Admiral Amjad Mazhar Hussain CB
Amjad Hussain was born in a village in Pakistan, came to the UK at the age of 5 and was raised in London. Keen to travel, develop as an engineer and avoid an office job, he surprised by joining the Royal Navy, something he describes as “an odd choice for an 18 year old Muslim first generation immigrant”.
He has sought variety in his subsequent career. Sea jobs have ranged from inspecting fishing catches in UK waters to operations in an aircraft carrier in the Gulf, whilst postings ashore have included training, buying missile systems and Whitehall strategy/finance positions.
More recently he was the Naval Base Commander Portsmouth and then the Director General Weapons, responsible for all UK missiles, ammunition and artillery. This was followed by 3 years as Controller of the Navy, an executive member of the Main Board of the Royal Navy and responsible for planning all future warships, submarines, combat jets and missile systems. He was made a Companion of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath in the New Years Honours List of 2011 and awarded an honorary doctorate by Durham University the same year.
We will also be treated to a special performance by one of the schools Mosaic works with.
Drinks and Canapes will be served. Please note arrival time is 6pm for a strict 630pm start.
