WE BROUGHT THE BBB MAGIC TO BIRMINGHAM!
This was our first event in Birmingham and we had a lovely time! We set up shop at Impact Hub Birmingham in their town hall space for our Blogger & Brand Mixer. It was a relaxed afternoon with good vibes and plenty of chit chat.
Notebooks came in handy as we had a trio of speakers on the day. Founder of BBB Mariam Bashorun kick started proceedings with a discussion on why Black British content creators matter. Experienced fashion and lifestyle blogger Natasha FS shared her journey to 10K followers. It was her first time speaking but she had no nerves as she emphasised the importance of tapping into existing resources and setting goals.
Aliyah, Rakeem and Sara the hosts of Who Got The Juice? brought us a mini live version of their podcast and were very real about the challenges that go into working as a team to produce a podcast. Check out their cool short video on the event below.
We rounded off the day with a panel discussion with Kadian, founder of Bourn Beautiful Naturals (our event sponsor!) on blogger and brand collaborations. We talked about best practice, accountability, setting rates and much more. Guests also got involved with plenty of questions which made for a very rich discussion.
In between our speaker sessions, guests could get their flat lay practice on with Afro Glory Designs and also shop her iconic prints. We also had snacks courtesy of Soffles and Hippeas plus goody bags for everyone to take home.
It was a lovely afternoon and we can't wait for our next visit! You can see clips of the day over on our Instagram page in our Highlights and blogger Amara Amaryah did a brilliant job covering the event over on her blog.
