Phreshy, a publicist, lifestyle specialist and curator started his entrepreneurial journey as a stylist working with on set of BET's Being Mary Jane, after his passion for connecting people and brands was noticed an offer to serve as a publicist was made and the rest is history. Over the course of his journey Perry has worked with an array of clients in the beauty and entertainment industry including Cardi B, Justin Combs, MTV, BET and VH1. Since striking out on his own and creating the I Am Phreshy Brand he's secured and developed the brands of clients such as The Taylor Girlz, Kway, Lala Milan along with establishing partnerships with the likes of both Dusse and Ciroc.
Being sure to highlight the importance of collaboration over competition, Perry wasted little time talking solely about himself and got down to sharing the true gems that the crowd gathered for. Unafraid to share the struggles he's personally faced in botched business dealings, building and maintaining relationships, even going as far as detailing when the ideal time to hire a publicist. The evening was filled with no shortage of knowledge and networking opportunities providing attendees with the opportunity to ask one on one questions and develop independent connections to facilitate elevating their businesses to the next level.
