Shahid Mughal and I have started short series of podcasts with a few members who are admired and are respected personalities within our Community. It is aimed at reflecting upon their growing up in East Africa and then living in the U.K. Looking upon their success in sport or chosen profession, business and anything that they may wish to talk about. 


We are also hoping to do shorter podcasts later about general issues that effect our community, e.g. our lifestyle, coping with diabetes and any other topics that can be of benefit to us. I am sure this will be of interest to many of our BEAMA members.

Please do come forward with any ideas or topics of interest. You can call me or email me.
