The Charlotte Tastemaker Summit began with Black Southern Belle’s founder, Michiel Perry, delivering a warm welcome, soon followed by a Lunch Keynote titled Building Your Brand Through Partnership with a host of great speakers from the listed above and a great moderator. The event included fun, experiential workshops such as Southern Floral Styling and Design Workshop and Table Top Workshop – Southern Styling for Social Media. In addition, educational lectures that were all based on building your brand by use of PR and owning a space to properly promote your lifestyle brand. Of course, with this event being a tastemaker summit, these presentations were accompanied by great food.
