The UK Black Business Show is an annual conference and exhibition show which takes place during Black History Month to highlight and promote the amazing businesses founded by people from the black community.

The show highlights the achievements and contributions black businesses have made to the economy and attendees have the opportunity to hear insights and advice in entrepreneurship, leadership and business from some of the UK’s leading black business professionals.

2019 marked the show’s third year and was a resounding success with over 2,500 attendees and 110 businesses exhibiting from across the UK, Europe, US & Africa. The show has been shown on ITV News, discussed on BBC Radio London and endorsed by Sadiq Khan the Mayor of London and David Lammy MP for Tottenham.

Raphael has spoken for and featured on several well-known platforms including Natwest, Labour, BBC, ITV News, Forbes, CBS, Facebook & BET as well as a personal invite to 10 Downing street.

Raphael has also launched the Black Tech Achievement Awards (https://btaawards.com/) Sponsored by JP Morgan which is set-up to celebrate and acknowledge black role models and innovators within the tech sector and to help illuminate the pathways to greater black representation of the community within the industry. The show was also sponsored by Goldman Sachs, BT and Facebook with BBC News Filming and broadcasting the event on the day

Raphael is also the Co-Author of Twice as Hard book alongside his wife. The book is set to be released in the UK and US in June 2021.
