Teneshia Jackson Warner has created one of America’s most successful multicultural marketing and communications firms — EGAMI Group – built from a combination of boldness, vision and deep sense of purpose. The creation of EGAMI was a result of Teneshia’s decision to change careers and realign her profession with her purpose. This leap of faith has proven to be well worth it.
Shortly after taking the leap of faith, Teneshia landed an apprenticeship with globally successful innovator, entrepreneur and business mogul, Russell Simmons. Under Russell’s leadership, she gained valuable experience as General Manager of Rush Communications. Inspired and encouraged by Russell Teneshia began her own entrepreneurial path and founded The EGAMI Group (www.egamigroup.com). She has taken the firm from an idea concept and turned it into a thriving multi-million dollar business. Among the firm’s client roster are Fortune 100 brands such as Procter & Gamble, Verizon Wireless, My Black is Beautiful, Gain, Bounty and many more.
Her first book – Profit With Purpose: A Marketer’s Guide to Delivering Purpose-Driven Campaigns to Multicultural Audiences (Paramount Marketing, 2012) – gave business leaders and entrepreneurs not only a tool for multi-cultural marketing in the new globalized world, but a compass for finding a purposeinspired passion and turning that into business.
Teneshia believes all Dreamers must S-T-R-E-T-C-H to realize their VISION!
In 2013, Teneshia founded Dream Project an annual symposium that has gathered thousands of entrepreneurs, creatives and career dreamers to participate in an empowering, informative and inspirational “boot camps” to STRETCH themselves towards their career, business and life goals. Dream Project has gathered nearly 200 business moguls, influencers and celebrity speakers; hosted more than 50 focused panel discussions and secured over ten Fortune 100 companies as partners.
