The spirit and excitement that generates around A Seat At The Table, LLC is largely driven by Phillip W. Dunn. He is best known for his entrepreneurial leadership, Black-Owned Business Advocacy and his undying commitment to the communities in which he serves.
Applying strict analysis of economic indicators in the United States and an understanding of community organization he has created one of the most successful social media focus groups in terms of active engagement and advocacy for Black-Owned Business. Boasting 7,500 Members, The Black Business Focus Group led to the founding of A Seat At The Table, LLC.
The concept for A Seat At The Table, LLC was initiated after Dunn, a native East Texan, recognized several gaps in the marketplace for the unique experience one receives from Black Owned Businesses in the United States. He used skills and knowledge that he developed around vendor relationship management and change management earned during his 16 years of Global Corporate experience in order to create awareness for Black-Owned Businesses.
Since beginning the focus group in November 2015 to study transactions and the relationship between Black-Owned Business and their immediate customers A Seat At The Table, LLC has become a trusted advisor to both the consumer market as well as to Black-Owned Businesses. Locally, Dunn was recognized for this advocacy by the Dunbar Alumni Association and the Houston Power Professionals Network for Entrepreneurial Leadership in 2016.
The success of the focus group at connecting consumers to Black-Owned Businesses led to the launch of A Seat At The Table, LLC, the premier directory, ratings and review company.
Dunn earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting from Sam Houston State University and earned a Master of Business Administration from University of St. Thomas. He is a Certified Internal Auditor, Certified Fraud Examiner, Certified Change Management Professional, CCSA, Executive Leadership Council Fellow and Advisory Board Member of the American Intercontinental University Business Department. Dunn also takes great pride in his family – his lovely Bride and their three beautiful children.
