I sure hope you are having a great week because mine has been eventful. I got a mail from Omolola of Pops concepts informing me that Makeup Artistry has been included into the Subsectors in the Nigerian Creative Industry and a seminar was being organised by the Creative Entrepreneur Association of Nigeria (CEAN) with the support of the British Council. I was so excited because this means the Makeup and Beauty industry finally got recognized.
Eryca Freemantle was going to be the key note speaker brought in by British Council of Nigeria for the June Creative Enterprise session in Lagos. The meeting was to help Creative Entrepreneurs build skills,expand network,find market and develop their business into becoming a global brand.
A Little insight to who Eryca Freemantle is.
