Kira Cheree’ Hopkins is a four-time published author, speaker and entrepreneur. As a well sought-after speaker, she is often called upon to speak to diverse crowds whether as a keynote, workshop facilitator or moderator.
In 2005, Kira founded Integrity Designs and Consulting. She uses her degree in Digital Imaging to create custom corporate identities and marketing collaterals. She is an entrepreneurial business coach and graphic designer specializing bridging branding and business. As a business coach she has been instrumental in the successfully elevation of more than 250+ small businesses over the past 14 years.
Early on in her business, she saw the disconnect of her clients’ ability to fully execute brand materials she graphically created. Quickly expanding her services to include business consulting, EBB (Entrepreneur Business Basics) grew from traditional individual consulting into one-day workshops to eventually a 12-week training session and more. The 12-week program has graduated more than 65 entrepreneurs of color with success rates of 67% entering into their business full time.
She is the recipient of the 2019 International Change Award for Community Impact in Entrepreneurship, and a co-founder of the KCK ECommunity of NetWork Kansas where she is responsible for lending gap funding to entrepreneurs of color in the urban core.
Her training and facilitation skills include certifications for Kauffman FastTrac and Junior Achievement Entrepreneurship Programs.
Heavily involved in the community, she is proud to serve on the following boards in various capacities: Black Excellence KC, American Jazz Museum, UMKC – Women of Color Conference, Giving Hope and Help.
Kira Hopkins says her most successful work is her four children. She enjoys golfing, writing and serving in ministry at Faith City Christian Center in Kansas City, Kansas. She is a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.
