“"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
The annual BB Awards event is jointly organised by Black Business Initiative and the Seba Enterprise Forum. The aim is to recognise, reward and celebrate the monumental social and economic contributions of black and minority ethnic individuals and organisations in Great Britain and humanity in general.
