1 Year On Celebration & Awards – Talent Match Black Country

22th of October 2015  - WV1 Restaurant, Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton


Opening Doors & Venues was proud to be involved in the planning, management and delivery of the second Talent Match event, following the launch of the project during a breakfast conference meeting almost a year ago. 1 Year On aimed to celebrate the biggest accomplishments of Talent Match Black Country by looking back at the first successful project year and awarding the achievements of its Young People, project leaders and mentors. The Celebration & Awards evening, supported by seven commercial sponsors, took place in the WV1 Restaurant of the Molineux Stadium, the venue that 'kick started' the Talent Match journey almost a year ago, as a powerful statement of its positive, lasting legacy. 

During this 3 hour event, approximately 180 guests were offered the exclusive opportunity to network around the exhibition, listen to a truly inspirational speaker, former X-Factor finalist, Ashley John-Baptiste, powerful case studies, be witness to a glamourous mini-awards ceremony and vote for the ‘Brightest Star’ of the year – all carefully and professionally hosted by, our now friend, Sameena Ali-Khan of ITV Central.
