In the sumptuous Grand Harbour Hotel, over 170 guests turned up at the masquerade themed gala dinner and award ceremony that concluded the annual Junior Chamber International (JCI) UK National Convention. The event was held on Saturday the 25th of November 2017. Despite wearing masks, we couldn’t help but recognise JCI members, senators, supporters and friends from all over the world including JCI Malta, JCI USA, JCI Ireland, JCI Scotland, and our very own Nigel Adkins, former Southampton and Premier League football manager.
After enjoying a delicious three-course meal, the masks finally came off and JCI Cambridge was in the spotlight. JCI Cambridge was recognised for its versatility, strength, uniqueness, passion and strong leadership and we were delighted to receive the following awards:
“Best Local Community Empowerment Program” for the Deaf Awareness Program
“Best Local Growth & Development Program” for the Micro-volunteering Program
“Most Outstanding Leader” awarded to Naily Makangu (JCI Cambridge President)
“Best Trainer” awarded to Naily Makangu
“Most Outstanding New Member – Certificate of Merit” awarded to Niall Eastwood (JCI Cambridge Deputy President)
“Words cannot express how proud I am of what we have achieved together at JCI Cambridge. Watching members develop and grow has been truly inspirational and gave me the strength to continue leading JCI Cambridge, working with the team to provide even more opportunities for growth. I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to JCI members, senators, supporters and friends in Cambridge and elsewhere for everything you have done for us.
To those out there who feel stuck in their career, personal or professional lives or are unsure how to get to the next level, please do get in touch with us. Your problem becomes our problem. Together, we will support your personal and professional development journey whilst also making an impact in our community.”
– Naily Makangu (JCI Cambridge President and Most Oustanding Leader 2017)
