Laban Roomes Presented with EBR’s Business Icon of the Year Award 2014

Last night, Jacqui Brown, Editor of Panache Occasions Magazine, presented Laban Roomes with his Business Icon of the Year Award, which she had collected on his behalf at the Ebony Business Recognition Awards, which were held in London on Friday 7th July 2014.  The Ebony Business Recognition Awards Panel recognised Laban Roomes, Founder of Goldgenie Global, as Business Icon of the Year for his achievements in business.

Unfortunately, Laban was unable to attend the event as his flight was delayed back to the U.K. last week.  He had been in Burma with his designer to source precious metals and diamonds for the impending iPhone 6 launch.  Insider sources have given the Goldgenie team an idea of the new housing specs and they are very busy preparing their new customisation designs to coincide with the release, rumoured to be later this year.

Laban, who had been featured in Panache Occasions Magazine earlier in the year said,

“It is  a true honour to be recognised by the EBR panel.  It motivates me to continue developing my business and inspiring others to achieve success.  Dreams do come true but you need to have a strong vision and hard work ethic to turn them into reality.  Careful planning is integral to business success and I always have one eye on the future, especially now as we look forward to Apple’s imminent iPhone6 release.”
