LONDON, Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Global interim management provider, Impact Executives celebrated its 21st birthday this week by hosting a special night with 100 of its key interim executives at their Annual Reception held in the glittering Crystal Room of the May Fair Hotel.
There was a great turn out and Impact Executives used the milestone to mark the announcement of their brand refresh, following a recent restructure to the business.
It also identified a new alliance with Kids Company - as its charity of choice.
The Kids Company was founded by Camila Batmanghelidjh in 1996, aiming to provide practical, emotional and educational support to vulnerable inner-city children.
David Gustave, the Educational Motivator for The Kids Company was a keynote speaker at the reception where he spoke with great passion about the work that he and the people involved are doing to make a difference to the lives of exceptionally vulnerable and traumatised children and young people.
David is himself an inspiration, having been raised in Peckham, London where he confronted verbal and physical abuse. At 16 he left home and not until he was 30 did personal events spark a desire to change the course of his life. Encouraged and supported by his Union he pursued his education, graduating from Oxford University with a degree in History.
After Oxford, David won a number of Scholarships from the Middle Temple to pursue a career at the Bar. It was here that he decided to make a difference and impart his knowledge at a street-level and he has been working with Kids Company for the past four years.
David is responsible (within Kids Company) for the programme that supports 76 young people through University. He is currently mentoring 18 young people, who against all the odds have won a place at University.
Christine de Largy, from Impact Executives commented, "We cannot think of a better mentor and Impact Executives are proud to support the work of the team at Kids Company in any way we can."
