Owned and operated by a female Managing Director, Syrac Inspirations takes a keen interest in the success of women in business and they recently held a company-wide workshop inspired by female entrepreneurs.
Research published by Womenable and American Express Open reveals that the number of businesses owned by female-entrepreneurs remains on the rise and counts for around a third of all businesses in the country. Rachel Robinson, Managing Director of direct sales and marketing firm Syrac Inspirations, says: “Now is the perfect time to be a female entrepreneur. We can make a real impact.” In fact, women-owned businesses employ nearly 8 million workers and have generated increased revenue by 79 per cent since 1997. “We are passionate about helping women to beat the gender gap by embracing entrepreneurship”, adds Rachel Robinson of Syrac Inspirations. Therefore, the firm has hosted a workshop in April 2017, specifically to inspire and empower women to put their dream into action and to open up and run a successful business.
During the workshop, Syrac Inspirations equipped attendees with industry knowledge and the relevant guidance to increase confidence. In addition to that, MD Rachel Robinson included success stories of two female entrepreneurs. Women who have inspired Rachel Robinson on her own journey to success are Justine Flynn, co-founder and director of Brand and People at Thankyou, which has funded access to safe water for over 180,000 people, and Uyo Okebie-Eichelberger, who launched You! Lingerie in 2010, after earning her MBA at Duke. Starting off in the basement of her home, Uyo Okebie-Eichelberger’s business now operates from a 7,000 square feet warehouse and office space. Her lingerie is sold online in more than 120 stores worldwide.
Rachel Robinson of Syrac Inspirations says: “Both Justine Flynn and Uyo Okebie-Eichelberger are very strong women who created something fantastic as a result of passion, commitment and hard work. It shows that anything is possible.” Syrac Inspirations believes it is time for more women to be in the boardroom. Therefore, the firm fully commits to support female entrepreneurs to overcome any challenges that may stand in their way.
Based in Sheffield, Syrac Inspirations is a direct outsourced sales and marketing company, founded and run successfully by Rachel Robinson, female entrepreneur and power woman. She is dreaming big and currently preparing, in line with the firm’s clients’ requests, to expand into at least two further markets by the end of the year. In the meanwhile, she has already arranged additional workshops to empower more women-entrepreneurs in the country to make their dream happen.
