These ladies were chosen from across the business sectors of beauty, food and fashion, each of the selected ladies brought a unique experience and story to the table. They each had an opportunity to talk about their business, goals and passions with themselves and Seyi Shay. The three business sectors selected are predominantly powered by women and Seyi Shay believes that connecting all these women proves to be a chance to create business synergy and strengthen sisterhood.
During the dinner, Seyi Shay said, “ I felt inspired to connect with women through the bond of sisterhood and I believe there is no better way to connect than through food.
