Black Flower Agency recently programmed and produced three virtual networking experiences bringing together 100 innovators with interactive entertainment as part of American Express’100 for 100 program in support of Black women entrepreneursThe concept, content development, and program curation by Black Flower played a vital role in successfully fueling the entrepreneurial spirit of the 100 participants.

Each virtual event kicked off with an entertainment component led by talent procured by Black Flower, followed by organized breakout networking sessions. The seamless technical production of the networking sessions allowed participants to get to know one another, building community through interactive participation.

Content in February’s event included appearances by BET marketing maven Kimberly Paige and TV star Jojo T. Gibbs on the art of entertainment and their respective careers.In March, we hosted an inspirational talk with social media superstar and actress Tabitha Brown. The TikTok influencer, known for her inspiring mantras, warm personality, and vegan cooking, discussed how she built her brand, career, and life, providing insightful direction for the entrepreneurs to create their own personal mantras during the breakout sessions.

The April event featuredTop Chef fan favorite Carla Hall, who discussed her inspiring career path, career pivots, and inspirations. She guided participants through making one of her famous recipes in a highly entertaining culinary masterclass, withthe entrepreneurs sent curated ingredients in advance of the program.

The lesson of our work on Amex’s 100 for 100 is clear: When everything is digital, entertainment is more important than ever in business engagement.
