THE EXECUTIVE TEAM

Chairwoman, New York
Raquel is Jamaican-American, an experienced speaker, business strategist and tireless champion for fellow entrepreneurs. She is the Founder and visionary for Bunchful, and has created the organization on a foundation of giving. Bunchful is also the brand behind Ensom City TalentQuest, an exciting new platform for friendly talent competitions that offer a uniquely creative outlet for groups of all sizes, enabling a more inclusive culture, where group members have a platform for artistic and cultural self expression, particularly during the pandemic, where individuals feel increasingly isolated within enterprise organizations. Early successes at include securing clients like Amazon, launching TalentQuest globally within their organization. In congruence with Bunchful’s foundations of giving back, Raquel launched the BE Bunchful Awards to help shine the spotlight out and on those who give back meaningfully to their communities and the wider world.
Raquel graduated head of her high school class in Jamaica, W.I., and moved to New York where she studied Philosophy and English at Queens College, CUNY.
She was voted President of the Philosophy Club for two consecutive years, raised funds to support noted and national speakers, and started a Philosophy tutoring program for students. Raquel then left longer-term legacies by publishing, ‘Philia’, a journal on philosophical thoughts, and by establishing the school’s first Philosophy Library.
With almost 20 years in business, including operations and sales, Raquel started her career at Bear Stearns as a Relationship Manager, moving to other companies, including Aegis and Countrywide, and later took a leading role in an arts venture, setting up a cross cultural performing arts initiative, where cultures speak to each other. Through that venture, she collaborated with National Geographic as a key sponsor, while partnering with New York City institutions, namely the Brooklyn Museum, El Museo del Barrio, and LaGuardia Community Arts Center. Raquel worked at Heartland Global, where she rose to Territory Manager, before stepping down to focus on her own entrepreneurial venture with Bunchful.
Raquel Miller is a passionate speaker who engages her audience on entrepreneurship, on a lifestyle of giving and a range of topics for business ventures, speaking at universities, and on podcasts and business forums, as she recounts her journey with humor and a unique voice.
Raquel sits on the board of the New York chapter of The New Executive Women in Hospitality (NEWH) as the Director of Equity Inclusion & Diversity, and was previously a Capitol Hill Intern with a position on The House International Relations Committee.
