A local entrepreneur is helping Cincinnati’s women develop personal branding skills through her innovative workshops.
Morgan Angelique Owens of the Morgan A Owens Brand was on a mission when she launched Brown Girls That Brand, a platform that teaches local women personal branding and the accompanying skills that are necessary to define and differentiate their specific core values.
“The inspiration and mission is to continue sassy and chic workshops that support predominately minority women with a mission to climb the corporate ladder as efficiently as their counterparts, gain corporate appeal in their own business, start their own business, or a mission to increase their bottom line while embracing their feminine, authentic selves,” explains Angelique.
Highlighting and recognizing women of all colors and helping them excel while serving as trailblazers in their career fields is important to Angelique.
Through Brown Girls That Brand, which launched June 29, Angelique uses workshops to show participants how branding is the cornerstone of function and development of an individual’s market and personal reputation. She addresses these topics through personal branding, business branding, career branding, event branding, and social media branding.
“Based on the knowledge, skill set and purpose of registered participants, each individual should depart with the tools to build an effective business or personal brand with corporate appeal,” says Angelique.
Current workshops feature a lineup of speakers including:
- Sonia Jackson Myles (Founder & CEO, The Sister Accord LLC)
- Sherry Sims (Founder, Black Career Women’s Network)
- Regina Carswell Russo (Brand Storyteller/Media Messenger)
- Pamela Williams-Dyle (Engineering Digital Systems Leader; Procter & Gamble)
- Karyl Cunningham (Executive Director, YMCA Black/Latino Achievers)
- Jan Michele Lemon Kearney- (Owner/Publisher, The Cincinnati Herald)
- Adrienne Ruff (Founder, She is Visionary)
Brown Girls That Brand was created under the umbrella of Angelique’s other business the Morgan A Owens brand, which offers tools and resources that reshape small businesses through marketing, graphic assistance, one-on-one coaching, and branding.
“I also launched my authored, ‘WerkBook,’ a guide to setting goals and slaying them,” adds Angelique. “I felt it was very important to create this book to further empower and lay the groundwork of becoming successful.”
Angelique says to keep an eye out for “Professional Pretty” workshops as well as future Brown Girls That Brand workshops under the Morgan A Owens brand.
