Make It Happen 2017 (An event to learn, connect and promote your craft.)

The big question for young people has always been ‘what have you got in your hands?’. Despite the fact that young people are making huge strides and giant leaps in different spheres, there’s more work to be done.

As a platform poised with creating opportunities for young people to stand out and set a standard in their individual pursuits, Lively Stones UK created an annual event – ‘Make it Happen’ for young people to learn, network, collaborate and become more influential.

Our debut event in Birmingham last year had close to a hundred students from different cities and background in attendance and the results were simply stunning. The speakers shared a lot of practical experience and tips and we had young people engage their ideas creatively, new business partnerships formed, and many others left the room inspired and equipped to take on new opportunities.

How can young people understand purpose? Why are we here, how can we groom enterprise relevant skills, how can we begin to take advantage of opportunities to grow potential, ignite creativity and transform our skills with the resources around us to drive profitability and societal impact? These and more are the questions this year’s Make It Happen event seeks to answer.

So, make it a date with us in Central London (More details coming soon) on the 18th of November, 2017, as we bring you a packed event line up designed to answer your questions. It is our belief that progress only happens when creative minds come together to ‘Make it Happen’.

This year’s event will feature seasoned interactive sessions and panel discussions hosted by insightful speakers sharing their journey, knowledge and experiences.

Are you young and willing to take the next step to grow potential and ‘Make It Happen’? Then this event is for you, get your tickets below.


Every year at Make it Happen, we raise money  for projects or organizations making a positive impact in the lives of young people in the UK. Last year we supported Our God Given Mission. This year, through the raffle draw where you will get a chance to win fantastic prizes, we will be raising money to support the #2by2 project which encourages and helps young people to find prayer and bible study partners.

Interested in volunteering, sponsoring or promoting your business at this event? Follow us on our social platforms; FacebookTwitter and Instagram or send us an email at . We look forward to having you!
