Vau’ve Anais Davis, founder of Official Anais PR, a Chicago-based public-relations consulting firm, is an award-winning philanthropist and first-generation entrepreneur who aspires to build a brand legacy through business development and community service.

 

After graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with her bachelor of science degree in psychology, Davis had a chance to put her passion and natural talent for helping others into action at two nonprofit youth organizations.

 

In her many roles, she helped develop, execute, and promote social services, after-school programs for teens, and career-development services. She also assisted with the production of an HIV-awareness campaign film. She has helped secure over $1,000,000 in grants, planned and marketed events, and solicited sponsorships from individuals and corporations.

 

Her innate ability to connect people and concepts to achieve desired goals prompted Davis to launch Official Anais Consulting (formerly Official Anais PR) in 2010. The purpose of her firm is twofold: to elevate the brands of local entrepreneurs, small businesses, and nonprofits to national and international levels; and to give back to the community.

 

Davis’s “Charity Corner” blog and her annual toy drive are two of her most prized charitable projects. She understands that it is challenging for nonprofit entities to market their programs and good deeds effectively with small budgets and even smaller staffs; therefore, she features two organizations or charities bimonthly on her blog with the goal of giving them exposure and soliciting donations for causes that serve communities throughout Illinois and the Greater Chicagoland areas.

 

Additionally, for the past several years, Official Anais Consulting has hosted annual toy drives to support single mothers during Christmas, one of the hardest times of the year for some parents. Due to overwhelming need, the firm hosted two toy drives during the third and fourth years. Support for Davis’s charitable efforts was so great that she was also able to donate to a mentoring organization as well as a domestic-violence shelter in Englewood.

 

In September 2013, Davis launched the Shark Tank Social, “one of Chicago’s hottest events,” according to the Examiner. Highly regarded by Chicago influencers, community leaders, and entrepreneurs, this monthly networking event connects budding entrepreneurs and other professionals who have a business idea that they want to pitch to investors. Some even consider auditioning for the actual show.

 

Davis has received several awards and recognitions for her professional and charitable contributions to local entrepreneurs, small businesses, and nonprofit organizations. In 2013, Official Anais PR was awarded the “Best Non-Profit PR and Event Planning Firm” by Black Celebrity Giving. The firm also received a “Humanitarian Award” from Fashion Arts & Humanitarian Fetes. Davis has been recognized as one of the “Most Powerful Women on the South Side of Chicago” for her contributions to the community.

 

In 2016, Davis launched a philanthropy apparel line called Brand Ministry Apparel and started a scholarship fund for her high-school alma mater, Proviso East High School, located in Maywood, Illinois.  Most recently, Davis self-published a book about giving back entitled, “100 Ways To Make A Difference Right Where You Are With What You Have” in March of 2017. All proceeds from her book and apparel sales go to charity and supporting small businesses.

 

In addition to her own ventures, Davis contributes to Stellar Award winner Mark Hubbard’s Gospel radio show with her “Purpose, PR, and Philanthropy” segment. She serves as community-relations director of Speak Hope Inc. and serves on the board of Charity Contributors of Chicago.

Brian K. Wyatt, Jr

In 2016, Brian K. Wyatt, Jr. decided to transition to be a full-time entrepreneur in Tallahassee, FL with his company B-EZ Graphix, a full-service marketing and design agency with a strong social focus. Brian is a business strategist and social innovator with over 14 years of experience in visual arts, finance, communications, website development, marketing, and project management and he is a United States Air Force Veteran. He believes that growing small businesses and having robust social impact will increase jobs and civic engagement in local communities. He believes that this in turn will decrease unemployment and solve many other social problems. This is the reason why Brian founded B-EZ Graphix in 2004 with a mission to help make marketing easy and affordable for small businesses and nonprofit organizations.

 

Brian was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois. So, he is no stranger to adversity. His entrepreneurial journey was no easier. During his Sophomore year at the University of Illinois at Urbana in 2004, his mother lost her job due to an economic crisis in his hometown. After losing financial support from his mother, Brian worked 3-4 part-time jobs to try to remain financially stable and help support his mother. Naturally, he was overstretched, and his grades suffered until he was academically dismissed from the University of Illinois in the Fall of 2004. Without access to the dorms, he was homeless for approximately 5 months living only off of the support of local friends. But, Brian resolved to stay put in Champaign, Illinois and went door-to-door to local businesses to offer his skills in graphic and web design to help promote and grow their businesses at affordable rates. The first client to offer him a contract became his good friend and was aware of the personal challenges that Brian faced. He remarked on Brian’s positive attitude, consistent professional appearance and commitment to excellence by saying, “after all you’ve been through, you make it look so easy.” From this, he earned the nickname, Brian “B-EZ” Wyatt, from which he named his company B-EZ Graphix.

 

Brian is now highly sought after as a trusted advisor of Marketing and Information Technology for several brands and nonprofit organizations in Illinois, New York, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas, and New Jersey. He has been a key figure in the development of over 1,500 business brands across the world. Brian is committed to partnering his clients with their community to have a strong social impact. He is determined to cultivate inspiring visions with creative direction in business development. His design philosophy is centered on the idea that “design creates usability; without usability it is just art.”

 

He combines his strategic marketing experience, leadership, artistic creativity and ingenuity with information technology applications to develop effective branding and marketing campaigns to achieve business objectives. His vision is to encourage aspiring entrepreneurs and “kidpreneurs” to know that they too can overcome the personal and professional challenges of entrepreneurship and be successful.

 

Mr. Wyatt holds a Bachelors of Arts degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana and is a graduate of the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship’s Small Business Executive Program (JMI SBEP), Class VII. He is currently a Master’s of Business Administration candidate of Keiser University.
