About

WBO 360 SurveyBlack Dress Partners is a business consulting and coaching organization that helps emerging and evolving women business owners strategize, prioritize, and execute organizational growth and efficacy. The Black Dress team accomplishes this via two primary channels: expertly facilitated, results-driven roundtables, and through one-to-one coaching and consulting. For two years in a row, Black Dress Partners has been recognized as one of St. Louis’ top consulting firms.

Erin Joy founded Black Dress Partners in 2011 to help guide businesses in all sectors facing a variety of challenges–from underperformance to fast, unexpected growth. Black Dress Partners’ consulting and executive coaching services, designed to help emerging and evolving business owners diagnose and overcome the obstacles that prohibit their organizations from reaching the next level, have improved the productivity, efficiency, and profitability of organizations across many industries.

In 2015, the Black Dress Partners team conceived the Midwest Women Business Owners’ Conference —an educational, interactive event bringing top female business owners together to discuss relevant, provocative business topics like corporate culture, marketing, finance, operations, growth, mindset, and more.

The amount of talent among women business owners in St. Louis continually blows me away. Everyone has a distinct story, their own particular triumph, even a transformational defeat—everyone has someTHING that someONE will identify with, take to heart, and use to change their life, business or outlook.
