Event Details

Known as the ‘Renaissance Girl’, Mercedes Benson is a social media guru and continues to be an impactful influencer within the UK culture.

 If she's not giving talks on how to be the ultimate marketer by day, she is shelling down dances as an international  DJ by night.

On top of all this, Mercedes wears her entrepreneur hat well - regularly posting on her personal blog ,heading up her own music nights - Future Snds, creating a community platform called SocialFixt - which seeks to to challenge the amount of BAME entry-level talent  seen being accepted, included and nurtured within the creative industry. 

She recently became the face of L'oreal's new make up campaign aimed at women with darker skin tones,having worked with the likes of Adidas, Google and Puma ,Mercedes continues to enter new territories and leave a mark...however...not all that glitters is GOLD.

Join us as we go behind the scenes and sit down with Mercedes as she speaks openly about the many struggles and hurdles she has had to overcome.

Find out:

- Why Mercedes got fired from Asos?

-The struggles of being self-employed?

-What it's like working in the industry as a black female?

-The truth behind the glitz and glamour of the industry

Hear it ALL at The Sitdown!
