The first Annual Black Business Gala presented by CIBC Black Entrepreneur Program and Motto was recently held at the Motto’s Grand Opening in Manitoba. The event was an exquisite, elegant affair, with food catered by one of Winnipeg’s top chefs, Melissa Brown of Brownees Urban Bistro. Motto has quickly become Manitoba’s premier one-stop shop for all the services and branding a business needs since its launch in 2022.
Motto occupies its own building space and has its very own state-of-the-art studios for recording, video production, photo shoots, and some of the top creative talent within the country, such as photographers Nate Mcleod and Ravdin Rampersad. When it comes to WEB3 designs, they have David Koroma, one of the province’s leading designers in the space. What sets Motto apart from the competition is its forward-thinking and ability to house every service unique to a business or even under one roof.
For those looking to get married, Motto’s in-house Director of Weddings and Events, Sonya Sharpe, will orchestrate special moments for the lovely couples and their guests in what will be a most memorable night to remember. Leading the team as the President of Motto Media and Public Relations is Chris Sharpe. Sharpe is a well-known business person across Canada and also heads up several other companies such as JamPaks Jamaican & Pakistani Food Truck, C Sharpe Productions and serves as the Executive Producer of Cell Phone Girls, children’s book series, and serves as the Marketing Director for The International Indigenous Hip Hop Awards Show. With a long list of accolades to his resume, it’s only a matter of time before Motto Media, and Public Relations becomes the leading one-stop branding and marketing services across Canada.
The Black Business Gala was a celebration of black-owned businesses and entrepreneurs, and Motto was at the center of it all. The event was an opportunity to showcase the creativity and talent of black business owners and to connect them with the resources they need to succeed.
The gala was a success, with attendees enjoying an evening of networking, music, and exceptional food. It was an opportunity for black entrepreneurs to connect and share their stories and experiences and for the community to come together to celebrate their success. The event was a testament to the importance of supporting black-owned businesses and entrepreneurs, and Motto’s Grand Opening was the perfect venue to host such a celebration.
