CEO, Black Blockchain Consultant

Cheree Warrick writes government proposals, grant proposals, and business plans, creates financial budgets and forecasts for companies nationwide. During her 5 tenure at a national government contracting firm, Ms. Warrick was influential in helping the company grow from $50 million in annual revenues to $200 million. She set up the company’s pricing models for all RFP (Request for Proposal) responses, prepared the company’s annual budget and summarized all budget-to-actual results on a monthly basis.

In 2009, the entrepreneurial bug bit her and she decided to leave the corporate world to join her family’s bookkeeping business. During her tenure there, she assisted the company in serving over 35 clients in 22 industries. Her responsibilities included preparing monthly financial statements, producing annual budgets, and corresponding with CPAs in the preparation of corporate and personal taxes. In 2012, she authored the book – Creating Business Plans that Actually Get Financed – to help business owners understand exactly what investors want to know before making a commitment. The book and her strategies are praised by numerous angel investors and commercial bankers including Barbara Corcoran of the hit TV show Shark Tank and Valerie Gaydos – founder of the Angel Venture Forum of D.C. In 2017, she became fascinated with blockchain, hashgraph, cryptography and the effect it will have on all industries. She founded Leo Blockchain LLC, a company that trains corporate executives, government administrators, employees, and entrepreneurs on the fundamentals and use cases of blockchain technology in a vendor neutral environment, writes technical statements of work for blockchain, hashgraph, and cryptographic projects, manage projects that are being implemented on the blockchain, and forecast and manage business risks using ISO 31000 as companies implement blockchain projects. Cheree holds a Bachelors degree in International Business from American University and a
Masters degree in Finance from George Washington University.
