Lord Ahmed warmly welcomed guests then we heard from Shah Morris who opened proceedings with a short film about the vital work of NAAM around the world.
Roger Harrison spoke engagingly of his own vision and introduced Yvonne Ridley, who gave an inspirational insight into her time as a captive and how she has used the experience to the good, focusing on the importance of women's rights around the world.
