Owner + Creative Executive Officer of N Natural Hair Studio
"I can not begin to describe the incredible value AdeOla brought to my team and our project. I've been in business for six years and have never had the ability to be so hands off and confident in the execution of a project. AdeOla asked for the vision and she literally went running to deliver. Her level of communication was just enough to keep me in the loop and not too much to distract me from other matters at hand. She stayed on track, stayed on budget and EVERYONE involved was impressed by the clarity in direction and level of communication they received throughout the project. I would recommend AdeOla to anyone who has the perfect vision but is lacking the time to execute properly. AdeOla will be one of the best decisions you ever make as a business owner. "
Campus + Teaching Pastor, McLean Bible Church
“Hire AdeOla NOW!! That’s my recommendation in a nutshell. I have worked with her for many years, doing large and small events, from weddings to retreats. Not only is she is detail-oriented and thorough in her planning, but she’s fun to work with! We were struggling to plan our annual church retreat until AdeOla took over. She coordinated everything. She recruited and led a team, managed the budget and marketing, worked with venues and vendors, and handled the distinctive details that made the retreat an amazing experience. She planned the retreat for two more years after that, three in total and every year was better. I loved working with her. I highly recommend you make her your next project or event manager!”
Owner + Bridal Stylist, Little Things Borrowed
“AdeOla and her team performed exceptionally well on all our projects and deserve perfect scores. I am EXTREMELY SATISFIED and impressed with her attention to detail whether running a video shoot or managing a social media campaign. From untangling the challenging glitches of a project to managing communication and personalities of vendors, AdeOla is a great project manager. Her personality and work style are firm, direct and endearing, and she is patient in the face of evolving ideas and changing priorities. As a visionary with many ideas, AdeOla is quick to affirm and redirect me so we don't lose track. She is easy to work with and she is so highly intelligent and insightful. She is constantly thinking of creative ways to execute within budget and vision and always had our best interest in mind. She not only understands expectations but she helps define them by adding leadership, structure, and execution skills. AdeOla and her team get an A++.”
Owner + Creative Executive Officer of Grace + Ivory
"As a small business owner, my time is limited, and this is where AdeOla stepped in! She took the reins of managing a Grace and Ivory's photo shoot and allowed me to focus on the creative styling. It was an AMAZING experience. She is organized, timely, and smart – she coordinated all logistics, worked with vendors and ran the day of the shoot. I successfully pulled off two photo shoots in the same week, and I could not have done it without her. I am glad I chose to work with her, and I have worked with her on a few more projects beyond the photoshoot. Discuss a vision or project with AdeOla and she will run with it. It is such an appealing trait because I don’t have the time to hand hold. I trust AdeOla with Grace and Ivory's projects and events because she understands the brand and vision. She is a great solution for small businesses who don’t necessarily have the means to hire a full-time employee but need a professional to lead and execute a business project, event or task.”
Owner, Statuesque Events
"AdeOla has been a huge asset to my team since she began contracting with us years ago. She constantly thrives to learn more not only about how to be better but also the vision and end goal that we are trying to achieve in my company. She is also flexible and understanding as priorities change. AdeOla has done a great job managing the events that she has led, and gaining trust and building a rapport with clients. This is also true for the events where she assists - she connects personally with the clients and also takes the lead in addressing issues and completing tasks as needed while keeping me in the know of what is happening. I am always at ease when I leave tasks in her hand and don't feel the need to triple check every detail because she is thorough. I would recommend her to help manage events or projects for other companies as well. She does a great job!"
