African Naturalistas at Beauty West Africa

Hello beautiful people. How are we all doing? Last week, African Naturalistas was at Beauty West Africa, which took place at Landmark Events Centre from 20-22 November 2019. It was a beautiful experience exhibiting alongside many foreign and domestic brands.

I, Atilola was a panelist at one of the sessions, and African Naturalistas won the SME exhibition award.

I had the opportunity of exhibiting and speaking at one of the panel sessions. My own session was on "Developing Global Positioning for African/Ethnic Brands –How Do We Build Strategic Partnerships to fast track our Beauty Business?"

Mama, we made it! Lol.

One of the major highlights for me was winning the SME Exhibitors award, organized by Lanre Olusola and Compass Global Consulting. I had been very exhausted the first night of the event, and wrote my pitch with sleepy eyes just as I was about to go to bed. I then took about twenty minutes the next morning to practice it before starting another vigorous day of exhibition, selling and speaking on my panel. I basically didn’t have time to prepare they way the typical me would prepare for any competition. That’s why I was very glad I won.

All in all Beauty West Africa was a good event for me, and my eyes opened to so many things. I'm glad I was part of it.
