Who Should Attend?

  • The mid-level marketer who is hands-on with strategy and decision-making.
  • Prior knowledge of data-gathering is not required.

I’m a creator and a builder. My thought leadership, relationship building and strategic thinking skills position me as a leader capable of transforming brands into inclusive mission-driven communities that cultivate meaningful relationships while fostering a continuously forward-thinking vision. My career represents 24 years of leadership, 16 years of digital marketing and PR, 10 years of diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as 7 years of data science experience. While these skills may seem unrelated, data-centric marketing through a DEI lens is not only my greatest passion, but it’s the future of marketing. In fact, in April 2021, I was honored as one of the “Top 50 Black Marketers on the Rise” for my influence and innovation.

As the first Black President of the American Marketing Association, I not only navigated our 500+ member organization through a global pandemic and civil unrest, but I forged new paths leading the Triangle chapter to become the 4th largest of an international, 70-chapter organization.

Throughout my career, I’ve spearheaded campaigns in 7 different industries, implemented PPC campaigns that increased web traffic by 300%; managed 9 simultaneous B2C social communities that increased reach by 8,269%, engagement by 1,006%, and web traffic by 608% within 90 days. I’ve hosted over 350 events both virtually and in-person, managed exhibitions for more than 45 conferences, executed 11 complete rebrands, launched both email marketing and automation campaigns, curated, drafted, edited, and published original written, video, audio, and visual content, as well as managed and designed UX and UI.

Along with my love for marketing came my desire to better strategize, pivot, and increase ROI to optimize my campaigns. This led me to pursue a concurrent career in digital marketing and data science. As a creative futuristic thinker, my extensive background in both qualitative and quantitative analysis enables me to design fully integrated, data-driven marketing campaigns that accelerate ROI by analyzing, interpreting, and turning metrics into actionable insights in real-time.
