Dubbed a mix between ‘Oprah’s Legends Luncheon’ and ‘Inside the Actor’s Studio’, the panel event features women of colour from all walks of life who share their pearls of wisdom with the audience to help inspire on the theme of ‘How I Became POSSIBLE‘.
Congratulations Simone :D
#TalkingTuesdays is a monthly Twitter debate which has been running since 2010 created and hosted by I’mPOSSIBLE to give time for open, effective dialogue on how our followers truly see the world and it’s events as well as positively interact with one another.
For 2014, we’ve revamped the format and taken the debate to Google Hangout. Sticking with the same successful formula, but adding a rotating, well-informed, opinionated panel with your views – the debate is getting bigger, more interactive and global.
In last night’s discussion panelists Lorraine Russell, Lisa Bent, Sheryl Nwosu and I’mPossible founder Simone Bresi-Ando discuss the following:
- Is servitude and slavery the only themes where Black actors as protagonists win big at the box office and at film awards? http://thebea.st/KeeNmq
- Is the only way Black British actors can find success is by relocating to the US?
- 2013 (and early 2014) was when a few monumental, global figures died. Who do you think can take up their respective batons in this generation? http://bbc.in/L3I44H
Well done ladies!

In July 2011, Simone Bresi-Ando, founder of I’mPOSSIBLE was honoured when CNN international approached her to talk about her experience as a Black British female.
Zena Tuitt, Kehinde Olarinmoye and Desiree Banugo joined Simone to share their journeys as Black British women and were asked a range of questions during a two hour interview about their perception of the beauty and fashion industry; working in the corporate world and society as a whole.
Well done Simone and all the other ladies who took part in this discussion.
