BUSINESS SECRETARY TO DELIVER KEYNOTE SPEECH AT ERNST AND YOUNG

TO CELEBRATE VAISAKHI 2012

The Business, Innovation and Skills Secretary – Dr Vince Cable MP – will deliver a Keynote Speech at Ernst &Young on Tuesday 10th April 2012 to mark the Sikh festivities of Vaisakhi.

The theme of the launch evening is “How Sikhs contribute to prosperity in Britain” and prominent British Sikh business leaders will also share their insights into how the Sikh ethos is proving successful in difficult economic circumstances.

Dr Cable’s attendance comes as Ernst & Young host a special week-long programme of events in conjunction with Dot Hyphen Productions; to mark celebrations of the 313th anniversary of the creation of the Khalsa Brotherhood.

Entitled “Turbanology at Vaisakhi” the week will feature the Arts Council exhibition “Turbanology: Sikhs Unwrapped” which promotes the meaning of the Sikh Turban (an important symbol of the faith) through art and film.

Speaking about the event, Amarjit Singh, partner at Ernst and Young said: “April will bring an exciting week of activities, providing an opportunity to recognise the contribution of Sikhs to the UK economy and showcase our leading entrepreneurs. Fostering such a diverse workforce is core to our corporate culture and is increasingly becoming a business and social imperative in modern Britain. It is vital that we draw on the widest range of talent and viewpoints available.”

It’s the first time the “Turbanology” exhibition is being held in Central London. Exhibition Director and Event Host Jay Singh-Sohal said: “Bringing the art exhibit to a prestigious corporate venue in April is an ideal opportunity to celebrate the Sikh contribution in Britain – especially economic - at such an important time in the Sikh calendar. It also presents a moment to reflect on the community’s achievements in reaching new heights in British life.”

After Tuesday’s keynote launch, two further special evening events will be held.

On Wednesday a Sikh classical music and Kundalini Yoga workshop will enable attendees to experience the tranquillity of the Sikh way of life.

On Thursday special guests will delve into the issue of “How Sikhs are perceived in media and abroad” with film presentations by the BBC and award winning artists The Singh Twins.
