You've decided that you want to have an event to increase your exposure in your local market or break into new ones. You want to build connections with your audience and get out from behind social media. Perhaps you have a new brand, product or service that you want to showcase to the world, and a panel, conference, mixer, or pop-up show is just the way to do it. But how do you expand that event outside of just the attendees in the room? How do you make it a viral occurrence? That's where I come in. 

The Elevate Your Event Masterclass is a fully integrated hands-on service that will cover all of the moving pieces to selling out and elevating your event. With the proper planning, contacts, and outreach anything is possible.

Meet Your Instructor

Over the past few years, I’ve represented clients in various industries including beauty, fashion, entertainment, alcohol, and technology. I’ve secured media placements in The Huffington Post, Madame Noire, Fast Company, Blavity, Buzzfeed and more.

In addition to public relations, I’m a contributing writer at Explore with Cassie and Sheen Magazine. I also provide content and event strategy, as well as mentor those who aspire to have a career in publicity.

I earned a B.A. in Mass Media Arts from Clark Atlanta University and a M.A. in Professional Business Communication from La Salle University.

When I’m not working with clients, mentoring young professionals, or writing, you can catch me exploring NYC and searching for the perfect matte lipstick.

What My Clients Say

"Deja, It’s been such a pleasure working with you — thank you so much for helping us get the word out about the tour. 
In Tallahassee, a student mentioned she saw us on Community Chat, and another attendee heard about the event on the radio. This was the first time we’ve hosted events outside of the tri-state area, so the media coverage you secured really helped break us into the southeast region of the country. 
Ariel and I look forward to working with you in the future. This is just the beginning! ” - Janel Martinez, CCO of 2020 Shift

“ When I first started thinking about going into business I had no idea what it entailed. I realize now how fortunate I was and still am to have someone like Deja in my corner. Deja is very knowledgeable in all areas concerning Public Relations. She is very creative and is always coming up with innovative ways to push her clients forward! ” - Music Artist Raqi Lily
