Turquoise Creative is part of Team BRAVO which is a group of business people from across Sussex and Surrey working together to meet BRAVO’s objectives and fulfil our Mission, Vision and Values.
BRAVO’s objectives are to regenerate through connecting Businesses with the Community, Surrey with Sussex, Englishness with Ethnicity and Infrastructure with Culture. We are doing this by producing various business and community events and initiating campaigns.
BRAVO produces an annual community choir event called Choiroke bringing together choirs from across Surrey and Sussex for one night only with some audience participation. More information can be found at: Choiroke.org.uk
Profits from our events will be put into our BRAVO Trust Fund which will be available to support creative or sporting projects within the Greater Gatwick region, that are for the benefit of the community.
BRAVO has hosted 6 successful networking events across Surrey and Sussex over the past 3 years in a variety of great venues including the 3 Vines BMW showrooms and Tulley Farm – Crawley, Gatwick, Redhill and Guildford. Our events are unique as they give delegates the opportunity to network in 3 different styles – Spotlight Session, Connecting 1-2-1’s and Open Networking. Food and beverages are provided. Events take place in the evening and the feedback from delegates has been phenomenal.
