Being Freelance Podcast
Already established in her marketing career, Nadine went freelance in order to ‘stretch’ herself professionally. And stretch she has!
Her natural networking style served her well. Nadine has been freelancing for 10 years with big name clients and still doesn’t have a website of her own. LinkedIn and her trusty Rolodex of business cards keep her ‘booked and busy’.

ACE Investment Initiatives
A recent study has shown at least 78% of black entrepreneurs had no formal funding at all and only 14% received startup loans, guaranteed by the government. Kevin Edwards and I are actively disrupting the lack of funding to help scale and support promising businesses via ACE Entrepreneurs.

We Are The City
Having a diverse workforce has so many benefits. A recent McKinsey report revealed that companies that are the most racial and ethnically diverse, are 36% more likely to have financial returns that are above average for their industry. Having a more diverse workforce, in most cases means you are more likely to represent the needs of all of your customers.
So what steps can companies take to really address this and avoid it merely being a tick box exercise? Check out my article to read more.
Here I briefly write about the changing landscape within the workplace, with ways to tackle and break the cycle, for or the The Institute of Leadership and Management. ACE Entrepreneurs is champion of diversity in business, focusing on ways to deliver tangible change and impact - for both entrepreneurs and organisations.In most cases, the change can begin with individuals; how we speak to each other, which partners and suppliers we use and identifying behaviours which leads to intersectionality.
