Hey, What's Up?

I’m Makeda, founder of The Conference Connection and The Speaker Directory.  I created this resource because I was in need of it and I knew so many other entrepreneurs would benefit from it as well.  The digital organizational part of me wanted me to create an all-encompassing resource that would help entrepreneurs navigate their way through conferences.

On a personal note, I’m a Trinidadian transplant living in New Jersey with my musician hubby, and three boys Anwar, Ashur + Amare.  I love a good, well-done filet mignon with asparagus, pistachio sundaes and HGTV.  

What People Are Saying!

I’m the type of girl who loves to know all of my options before making a decision, especially when I’ve budgeted for just one conference a year. In the past, when I wanted to attend a conference, I’d ask around in Facebook groups for a list of events, then I’d spend hours tracking down each website and comparing features. Google was no help since the results were never geared towards my business or niche. #frustrating. Then in comes Conference Connection! I can finally search through all small business conferences in one place! It’s easy to compare features and view the speakers so I know which event fits me best. Lauren Black

Posting on the Conference Connection was a breeze!  We wanted to make sure our event was seen by as many people as possible… confident that CC will help us reach our goals.
