Ebony Inspired UK - A Black Entrepreneurs Network is founded by female entrepreneur and all round "Bosslady" Chantell Simone Graham and was launched on Wednesday 21st March 2012.
Chantell is a freelance Makeup Artist and Beauty Therapist and has been running her business CSG Makeup & Beauty since 2005 (www.csgmakeupandbeauty.co.uk). Since 2007 Chantell has been Project Manager for Black 100+, an award winning photographic exhibition of Black achievers in modern Britain (www.black100plus.co.uk). Since 2012 Chantell has been the new group leader for Chelsea Ladies Who Latte. A free monthly networking event for female business owners held in the heart of London's prestigious Chelsea area (www.chelsealadieswholatte.weebly.com)
After networking on a weekly basis for a period of at least 6-12 months, Chantell found that there were very few regular and good quality networking events run by Black entrepreneurs that were aimed at Black entrepreneurs and it was feeling concerned by this which gave her the drive to create Ebony Inspired UK.
Chantell has found that networking on a regular basis can help you and your business to:
- Raise your profile by sharing ideas and knowledge
- Build a presence in various industries
- Strengthen your business connections
- Build strong relationships and trust
- Meet high profile people from various industries
- Find solutions by exploring new ideas and concepts
- Gain new insights, knowledge and information
- Share your achievements and experiences
- Achieve accolades
- Socialise with like-minded people
Chantell is passionate about the development of the Black community in the UK, particularly in the areas of business, enterprise and entrepreneurialism.
Chantell has a ultimate goal to set up Ebony Inspired UK as a franchise, enabling the monthly networking events to take place in various locations throughout the UK.
Chantell is a guest speaker at various events where she talks about her various different job roles and how she set up Ebony Inspired UK with no capital!
I look forward to seeing you all at one of the Ebony Inspired UK events!
