    Abena Poku- Awua Founder of Legacy Market Place

    This episode is brought to you by Redbull Amaphiko Academy, giving wings to entrepreneurs making a difference in their corner of the world.

    Meeting Abena Poku Awua reminded me that there is a business in everything. You just have to follow your gut and passion. I hope you feel inspired to make a difference in this world after this episode.

    About The Legacy Marketplace:
    The Legacy Marketplace aims to solve two problems: friction in the event planning process and increasing attention to reduce the environmental impact of our lives. The Legacy Marketplace aims to help businesses and consumers take relevant and impactful action on acting against climate change. It removes the friction in event planning, incentivising sustainable events that have minimal impact on the environment and that act as a catalyst for positive social change. Abena has worked in the sustainability sector for 15 years, her lightbulb moment came in 2016. She was frequently expected to organise events for my clients outside of my main responsibilities. She was also juggling a demanding job with trying to arrange various special occasions for my friends and family. The problem was there was not one place that you could go to compare the options and book there and then..

    Alice Ojeda Founder of Authentic House

    This episode is brought to you by Redbull Amaphiko Academy, giving wings to entrepreneurs making a difference in their corner of the world.

    Alice Ojeda is such a breath of fresh air and it was amazing to learn so much about how we can do our part in creating a better environment. I felt so inspired to truly make an impact and I hope you feel the same way!

    About Authentic House
    Authentic House is for people who want to change their lives to be in line with their values, by reducing their environmental impact in a way that’s positive and long-term. The inspiration for Authentic House came from seeing a simple fuzzy washing up brush made of coconut fibres. It was beautiful, practical and such an obvious alternative to a plastic brush. Alice found more small products like this and realised that eco-friendly living is easier than people think. A change can begin with the smallest step. She launched an eco-friendly subscription service to make this lifestyle change effortless for people, and to help them find ethical products and makers that really did match their values.

    Claire Henderson - Co-Founder of OH POLLY

    My guest today is the sweet, ambitious, powerhouse Claire Henderson, the Co-founder of the rapidly growing fast fashion brand OH POLLY. It was such a honour to be chatting with someone so humble yet hugely successful and for the Big Picture to be her first ever podcast interview. Our conversation was short & sweet as she was only in London for the dayyyy and didn't have loads of time nonetheless as usual gems were dropped and I hope you enjoy it!!

Interesting, Insightful & Inspiring

I have been listening to this podcast for quite some time now and find myself looking forward to a new episode as soon as the one I’ve listened to is finished! I really like Rita’s interview style which gets the most out of her guests. I should mention that her choice of guests are always top notch and anyone in the creative industries will always find some nugget of wisdom to take away with them.
I enjoyed having a word of the day at the beginning of each episode. Hoping Rita will bring that back!

Inspiring and witty

Keep up the good work Rita. It’s important that Black British women are speaking about their experiences setting up businesses.
