My name is Chidinma Chima-Orji, the Creative Director Events by Eki.

Events by Eki is a boutique, wedding and event planning company, we offer services such as wedding planning, corporate event planning, and social event planning. Event by Eki was established in the year 2012, it was birthed as a result of my drive to become an entrepreneur, to get something going, I actually started it during my service year as I didn’t want to just do my service and start searching for a job, though we started as ushers, so after the ushering services, I kept on going for events and I looked at it that it was something I could do, so I went deeper and learnt more about event planning and it became an event planning firm.

My level of stability is through social media because everything is going digital now; when I go for events I make sure I use the best vendors, photographers, the caterers, because when people come to your events and see your work they are impressed and your clients tend to refer more people to you and it just makes everything better.

The first challenge I had was finances, raising money to start the business initially was really difficult, there was no help coming from anywhere, so with my little resources I decided to be putting out adverts, people called but when they meet you and you don’t have an office and you don’t have a place for the meeting,

they become worried. Event planning is like putting money into your hands to plan someone’s events.

My turning point I will say was two years ago, initially when I started I was still applying for jobs and wasn’t investing back into the business, I was still believing in the white collar job, you need to sit in an office before you will be seen that you have a proper job, but the moment I said to myself I needed to be serious and focused on the event planning business, grow the business, that became my turning point. I started investing back into the business, started to pull in more work, more effort and change my quality of work basically improve in all aspect.

My level of stability is through social media because everything is going digital now; when I go for events I make sure I use the best vendors, photographers, the caterers, because when people come to your events and see your work they are impressed and your clients tend to refer more people to you and it just makes everything better.

I think I have learnt to focus more on my business because basically for one to move forward and achieve where he or she aspires to be because am not there yet but hopefully I will be there soon, I need to put in more focus, more effort and make sure I don’t backslide or listen to negative comments because there will always be negative comments from every angle. There are people that will make you feel like you’re not doing your best or doing enough so the best thing you have to do is to stick to the constructive criticisms work on them and the other ones that are not constructive you just block them out and everything will fall into place.
