This is what went down at Tara National Summit 2017
The Tara beauty entrepreneur national summit 2017 was a fun-filled event one wouldn't forget easily as there were lots of games and prizes......Did we mention lots of food and drinks?(Yum!).
The event which held yesterday, 8th November, at Wilmot Point was aimed at celebrating 1000 voices who over the years have built-in their strength, passion, and spirit of enterprise in the Nigerian beauty space.
The beautifully decorated event centre which was put together by Funke Bucknor, CEO Zapphaire event, brought together beauty entrepreneurs, retailers, re-sellers, make-up artists, investors and other stakeholders who have all learned a thing or two from Tara Fela-Durotoye, Founder/ CEO, House of Tara International. She has worked with over 10,000 beauty entrepreneurs annually These individuals have massively contributed to the growth of the cosmetics industry.
It was a very inspiring moment for Tara and her children, as she usually calls them when some of these beauty reps came forward to recall how Tara Fela-Durotoye changed their lives for the better and expressed their deep gratitude. In her own words "I feel so honoured to have changed these many lives, I wasn't even expecting this, it feels like I told them what to say"
