09 Aug Good morning, sleepy heads! Out of bed yet? Yeah, we didn’t think so – don’t worry, we’re not judging ? In honour of Women’s Day we wanted to kick-off with something new to our page, something that we are hoping with stick around for a while, here at Petal&Post. We give you, #motivationmonday! Yes, we know it isn’t Monday but we thought, given the subject, it would be a great way to commemorate today. More on that on Monday. Let’s get straight to it. This is @jacquibarhouch, she is the definition of #girlboss and that’s why she was the obvious choice for our first ever feature in association with our all new Motivation Monday. Born and bred here – she has lived most of her life soaking up the sun on the beaches of Cape Town, except for her ten year stint in London, where we are sure this beach bum did not find much sun. Hmmm it’s a wonder why she came back. So, what does she do and what makes her the ultimate #girlboss? Well, with her 17 years experience in public relations, marketing and communications which she completed in both the U.K and South Africa, Jacqui started Blackbird. Blackbird is a communications consultancy, focused on helping businesses grow through strategic communications, marketing and public relations, she also co-founded a non-profit startup called Hatch, which delivers newborn starter packs to new mothers in Cape Town’s underprivileged communities. We love her go-getter attitude and the fact that, with everything she has going on, she has also found the time to create her own way of giving back to something so true and dear to her heart. Commendable! Jacqui first got to know Petal&Post founder Kim, as her next door neighbour, they then became further familiar with each other as part of a women’s business network called Society, and with her passion for supporting women in business, Petal&Post has now been a client of Blackbird for 9 months and we have loved every second of it! So, there you have it. We wanted to celebrate a local #girlboss in honor of Women’s Day.
