“I would like to thank you again for the opportunity, it was enjoyable and motivating.”
The J.P Morgan mentoring session was a success. From meeting the professionals, to having a tour of the trading floor. It was very motivational; especially to see so many people of African/Caribbean descent working in J.P Morgan, in such a prestigious and world-renowned company in the heart of the very competitive and world-class city of Canary Wharf. What more could an ambitious and self-motivated young person ask for? The extensive efforts of BOLD, ACES Aspire and J.P Morgan was clearly portrayed on this fantastic event, to empower young people of African descent and make sure that we end up as leaders. The inspirational stories from some of the J.P Morgan staff and even the one-to-one mentoring was refreshing. Overall, a great and informative event and I will most certainly be looking forward for the next event, all suited and booted!

I attended an event at J.P.Morgan investment bank with my 18 year son, it was excellent, the speakers, one to one mentors sessions, touring the trade floor, gave a detailed varied insight which is priceless.
In my view it is essential for our children to be exposed to industries that may seem untouchable, this allows the up & coming generation to have a sense of direction, aim high and have a “I Can” attitude.
Thanks to Aces Aspire, BOLD & J.P. Morgan for an amazing experience.
