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. "

“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 and highly recommend you make her your next project or event manager!”

Owner + Creative Executive Officer of Grace + Ivory
"As a women-owned small business, we have capacity issues and my time is simply just limited. I have too much for me to do and not enough of me to go around. This is where AdeOla stepped in – for a recent photo shoot, she took the reins of managing and coordinating the pieces of the shoot so I could focus on the creative styling and working with the vendors in various aspects. We listed out action items and, while I was the “lead” on some of them, she was thoughtful enough to follow-up and keep everything on track. This also allowed me to successfully pull off two photo shoots in the same week – I could not have done it without her. I’m glad I choose to work with AdeOla as she is organized, timely, and smart. You can discuss a task with her and she goes with it, which is appealing to me because I don’t have the time to hand hold. I feel that I can trust AdeOla with specific tasks and she understands my brand and vision. I plan to work with her again and would recommend to anyone that she is a great solution for small businesses who don’t necessarily have the means to hire a full-time employee."
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!"
