Join NSA-IL Board Member and Media Maven Shanita Akintonde as she shared her signature presentation, Selling the Sizzle: How Brands (including YOU) Can Become Notable and Quotable. This highly interactive session offered an 'insider's view' on what the best brands do to remain on top and how speakers can do the same.
Shanita Akintonde has been speaking since she first learned to spell her bologna's first name. Today, you would be hard pressed to find this avid Michael Jackson fan without a book, either one of the three she has co-authored, or one written by someone else. She has traded bologna sandwiches for champagne and lobster.
Shanita has danced with NSA for 17 years, a courtship that began in 2003 when she was a participant in the NSA-IL chapter’s first Speakers Academy (then called the Candidate U). Shanita now sits on the chapter Board and serves as the organization’s Marketing Director.
Drawing on her experience as a former advertising and PR executive, Shanita ‘sizzles’ around the globe showing audiences how they can become notable and quotable. She is a college professor, podcast host (Marketing Insights), newspaper columnist, and blogger. Reach out to her on Linkedin or follow her on Twitter.
