What is a BoB’s Fair?

Based on the jobs fair model, the BoB’s Fair is an opportunity for organisations seeking to recruit board members to meet our trained Black on Board (BoB) talent pool. If you are seeking board members, the BoB’s Fair will give you a chance to meet delegates that are board-ready and looking for an opportunity to use their skills

The event is free, and the registration is quick and easy. Attached is the flyer for the event.

How do I sign up? Registration takes about 3 minutes.

Once registered, via the button above, exhibitors will be allocated a table at the fair and Olmec will be in touch with confirmation and reminder

Please do let us know if you will be bringing banners and signage for your organisation so that we can accommodate.

We will be joined by:

  • Marie Snelling (Interim) Assistant CEO LB Croydon
  • John Mayford Olmec CEO
  • Professor Patrick Vernon OBE, Olmec Associate, Activist and Campaigner
  • Mayor Jason Perry, Executive Mayor
  • Paulette Lewis MBE Croydon BME Health Forum

About Olmec and Black on Board

Black on Board was developed in 2005 by Olmec, an award-winning race equality social enterprise, to address underrepresented of Black, marginalised, and racialised communities (BMC) at board level. We train, mentor, and prepare delegates through a comprehensive 14-session governance programme.
