Soundboarding with Daisy Jacobs:
How mentorship and theatre is supporting women from refugee backgrounds integrate with communities in London.
Date: Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020
Time: 8pm London/Dublin
Duration: 1hr 15mins | 40-minute talk + x2 rounds of Soundboard matches (10 mins each)
What is Soundboard?
Soundboard is a platform to help the people in our community find inspiration, shift perspectives, and expand any self-limiting beliefs that might be holding you back to ultimately have a more fulfilled and content life! The tool that we use to do this is through a meaningful exchange of experience.
We bring together thought leaders, musicians, creatives, founders, and business owners who are doing something brilliant to hear how they achieved what they did and the defining experiences that got them there.
Building connections with likeminded people is the heart of Soundboard, how else can we learn, inspire, and motivate each other? That's why we always include two 10 minute Speed Soundboarding sessions – an opportunity for our dedicated team to handpick someone else at the event for you to talk to based on your interests, background, or personal/professional goals.
This session welcomes Daisy Jacobs, Co-Founder and Director of Routes, a social enterprise that matches women from refugee and asylum-seeking backgrounds with mentors in London. (Daisy is pictured right with co-founder Leyla)
We will hear the story behind creating Routes Collective, as well as hear her perspective on mentorship and the impact it has had on this community she has built.
How it works:
At the point of sign up, you will be asked to share some details about yourself. The information is used to match you with a Soundboard.
You will receive an overview of who your matches are ahead of the event so you’re not going in blind.
Don’t worry, there will be no awkward conversations because we give you a topic to discuss with your match so no last-minute scrambling for what to say.
You make genuine connections and meet people you already have something in common with - we handpick a match for you based on pre-shared criteria which means you can skip the small talk and get right to the good stuff.
Don't let the fear of meeting someone new scare you off, guaranteed inspiration or your money back!

You want to make genuine connections with like-minded people.
You are curious, eager to learn something new, and have an open mind.
Anyone can join these events, you don't need to have any prior experience in any particular field, you just need to be curious and open to learning something new.
More about our speaker:
Daisy is the Co-Founder and Director of Routes, a London-based social enterprise supporting women with experience of the UK asylum system to build new relationships, develop their confidence and communication skills, and find space for self-exploration.
She founded Routes in 2017, after volunteering on the frontlines of the refugee crisis in Athens and Calais, where it was clear that traditional humanitarian responses, which largely relied on donations and volunteers, were not set up as sustainable solutions to a crisis that did not seem to be going away. She brings her background in applied theatre facilitation, teaching, a knowledge of social enterprise (gained on the Year Here programme), and a deep belief in the power of mentoring and coaching to her work at Routes.
