Breakfast for Directors London - 3rd October

By Rebecca Lee on July 26th.

What a fantastic way to kick off October! We spent the morning with a stunning venue, great people, delicious food and even better networking. Hosted by High Profile Club CEO Rafael dos Santos, each breakfast features ample time to network, a full continental breakfast with tea and coffee, and a noted guest speaker from the media. Past speakers have included participants from The Apprentice (BBC), Dragon’s Den (BBC), Google, and The Guardian with many more exciting guests lined up to be featured in the future. All past media speakers have come with a willingness to share their expertise, tricks, and tips for success.

As well as that, he has also been an associate music curator for the at the Liverpool Arab Arts Festival, which is the biggest Arab culture festival in the UK. He is also in the process of recording his first documentary film to be released next year.

Yusif gave a talk on how to best approach a journalist if you’re looking to be featured in the media. His extensive list of Do’s & Don’ts were incredibly beneficial, especially to an audience keen to get themselves featured by a journalist like himself.
