Singapore Mompreneurship 4.0 Workshop, Saturday 28th Sept 2019
Running a workshop is never easy but running a workshop that has so much meaning and purpose is empowering!
On a early Saturday morning of 28th September 2019, a group of aspiring mompreneurs committed a full Saturday workshop to learn from various amazing speakers that KC Creative Marketing Pte. Ltd. & Mother Industrialist had organised.
Our emcee, Racheal Olivero warmly welcome all the aspiring mompreneurs and also thanking them for making time to invest in themselves on a Saturday morning where most people would be still in bed.
The Saturday started with Kenneth Choo, the founder of KC Creative Marketing Pte. Ltd. and the author of Mother Industrialist where he shared with the mothers how to discover the mompreneurship in them!
Kenneth share with the mothers why he (a man) wrote a book interviewing mompreneurs and about mothers. He also shared with the mothers how they can discover the 3Ps in them to craft a mompreneurship blueprint for themselves. He also shared with them why mompreneurship is important and how it can potentially help them to craft a better future for their children's children. He also shared with them how important it is to have self-awareness in their business and discover their WHY for their business.
Next we have Rachel Pang who's a mother of 3 young children and the co-founder of OC Group where she is managing an established marketing agency and working on a new startup. It is amazing how a mother with 3 kids and multiple business balance her motherhood life. She is an inspiration and motivation for a lot of working moms where she recently represented Singapore in an international beauty pageant and was crowned Mrs United Nation.
She shared on the topic "Content Marketing - the way your customers want it!". This is the pillar of all marketing in today's world. Content marketing is so important especially in social media marketing. You need to keep creating content to keep up with the market and constantly you need to engage your customers to win their attention.
That's where Rachel shared with the mothers the strategies that they can adopt to create lots of content by following what she shares. Understanding content marketing helps to lay a strong foundation in content curation. You have to market the way your customers want it, NOT what you want your customers to know. Many entrepreneurs and business owners get it wrong.
After all the inspirations and practical marketing strategies for business, it is time for lunch.
The caterer for the lunch is Bizlink Cafe. We decided to use Bizlink Cafe because is an F&B social enterprise that has a mission to serve good food with a great cause. We wanted the attendees to be a part of giving back to while learning to be a mompreneurs. Bizlink cafe serves international gourmet food at value prices and have now expanded into offering catering services.

Bizlink cafe's mission is through job training and employment placement, Bizlink Café is promoting independence, dignity and social integration of
disadvantaged persons, especially those recovering from psychiatric conditions.
GOOD FOOD, GREAT CAUSE
The lunch was great and delicious! It is also a good time for the mothers to network and make friends.
After lunch, we started off with a topic that most entrepreneurs are interested is "Grow your ecommerce business across Southeast Asia" by Janio Asia. Nanako Nishiguchi, Regional Business Development Manager of Janio Asia share with us how we can grow our ecommerce biz across southeast asia.
