Imams Online Digital Summit 2017 @ Google UK

About the Event

Imams Online in partnership with Google UK is hosting the ‘Imams Online Digital Summit 2017’
on Wednesday 11th January at Google UK’s London Headquarters. This Summit aims to bring
together Imams, Scholars, Aalimahs, Mosque Management and Madrassah Staff to a day of
Presentations, Networking and Practical Workshops.

This event has been organised as a way of facilitating a conversation between a cross section of the Muslim leadership in the UK
and senior executives from both the public and private sectors.

The event will provide the Muslim community present the opportunity to sincerely discuss pertinent issues affecting the community and allow for an honest and open debate. We encourage participants to come prepared and to not shy away from asking difficult questions that get to the root of the problem as the speakers present on the day are ready for the challenge.

In a time when the Muslim community feels like its voice is not being heard,
we hope this event can help change that and give the Muslim community a voice and platform for sincere and solution orientated discussions.
