Angelique Rewers, CEO, The Corporate Agent
As CEO of The Corporate Agent, Angelique is a tour de force in helping small businesses and self-employed professionals land corporate clients. Having successfully navigated all sides of the corporate buying table for more than 18 years — including hiring more than 300+ vendors and service providers — Angelique knows just what corporate decision makers look for in their outside experts. When she left her corporate job in 2006, she used her “insider” know-how to quickly win some of the biggest brands in the world as her own clients. Before long, other business owners were asking Angelique to teach them how they too could win those kinds of clients… and, in 2010, The Corporate Agent company was born. In just four short years, Angelique went from the starting gate to being among the top 1% of women business owners nationwide, and was recently named an Enterprising Woman of the Year by Enterprising Women Magazine. She has built an online community of more than 30,000 business owners worldwide. She and her coaching team have trained and mentored more than 3,500 start-ups and self-employed professionals across 72+ countries. Her groundbreaking INSIDE EDGE global conference has brought entrepreneurs together with major brands like IBM, Intel, HP, PayPal, AT&T, Marriott, Chevron, Major League Baseball and many more, to help them work together more effectively.
Organizations like USAID, National Geographic and The Smithsonian have turned to Angelique as a trainer and consultant for entrepreneurs across Africa, Asia and the Middle East who are developing innovations to save endangered species and secure water for food. And Uber selected Angelique as its brand’s first-ever official Uber Mentor. Angelique’s expertise has been featured by major media, including Huffington Post, Forbes, Inc., Lucky, Washington Post, Entrepreneur, CBS and more. She is Accredited in Business Communications by IABC and Accredited in Public Relations by PRSA. She earned her degree in International Affairs from George Washington University. A Baltimore native and die-hard Ravens fan, today she lives in Delray Beach, Fl., with her husband of 15 years, and her seven- year-old twin boys.
