Chantel is an ambitious, passionate, resilient Mum in Action with that entrepreneurial spirit and has not been afraid to take risks in her life. Since the age of 18 she has had various business ventures from 'Mingle if you're single to M.I.A Events'.
M.I.A Events was formed back in 2007 along with 3 other likeminded ladies at University where they all studied 'BA Hons Event Management'. The name M.I.A (Mums In Action) came about as they was all mothers with young children trying to make a change in their lives.
Chantel and the team organised various events through M.I.A Events which included club nights, family trips and raising money for children in need. They then went on to focus on organising children community discos, as they felt the need for children to socialise with other children in the community.
M.I.A has now been rebranded and is co-owned together by Chantel and Symone. The focus is now empowering, supporting and promoting mothers who have a business.
