Earlier this week I had the opportunity to hang out with Grammy Award winning, R&B and soul singer-songwriter Chrisette Michele! The media were invited out to an intimate two-hour private session with the songstress where we were able to conduct interviews, gain photo opps before the event and just get to know Chrisette Michele a little better. I was happy to have the opportunity to work with her once again after all I hadn’t worked with her since she was here with the World Natural Hair Show a few years ago when I had my first opportunity to get to chat with her and learn more about her career. Let me just say that Chrisette is absolutely a gem! Talking to her is like chatting with your sister! I love this candid portrait of us having some girl talk.
Chrisette Michele has been hosting an 8 city social media networking event called the “Pose ‘N Post Symposium” all month where she has an empowering panel discussion and teaches her audience how to build their brands and Atlanta was the last the stop on the tour. After the intimate private media reception we continued to network with one another until the actual event begun.
The attendees begin to enter the B Loft Center and we welcomed to amazing sweet treats and wine as they awaited Chrisette Michele and her panel which included: Courtney Adeleye of The Mane Choice and You Tubers Fash aka Lover4_Fashion and Brosia Malbrough.
The evening began Chrisette Michele wowing the crowd with her amazing voice! Check out the video below:
Once the crowd was serenaded by Chrisette she has us all complete an activity where we each went to someone who we didn’t know and follow them on instagram, create a unique hash tag that describes the two of you and the #poseNpost hashtag. In my opinion this was an amazing ice breaker and a great way to gain followers.
Chrisette began with a Q&A style interview for the panel where they shared a series of questions and answers on branding and social media.
Once the expert panelist shared their stories and experiences with the attendees, Chrisette opened the floor for the attendees to ask questions and share their concerns with building their brands. Here are five take away’s from the PoseNPost Symposium:
- Balance is Key and Very Important!
- Timing is important!
- Read and Respond!
- Consistency is key!
- Hash Tags Are Important!
STAY TUNE CHRISETTE & POSENPOST MAY BE COMING TO A CITY NEAR YOU!
