The Black Heritage Festival is the ultimate family friendly festival that commemorates the many contributions and influences African Americans and the African Diaspora have made in society. The festival is presented by Ebony Magazine and will feature award-winning marketing expert, author and speaker; Velma Trayham. Velma will be honored by the Houston based Black Heritage Festival on Saturday September 30, 2017 in Texas.
This year’s Black Heritage Festival and honor in Houston comes on the heels of the release of Velma’s latest book, When God Says Go. The new book is an encouraging leader’s handbook, especially for aspiring entrepreneurs. The book is helping people embrace their go moment; to step out in faith and not allow temporary failure to become permanent defeat.
Velma arrived from very humble beginnings, but always knew her destiny would be to help others to bring their dreams into reality, to walk in their gifts and callings. Velma states: “There are many problems in the world in which need solutions to, the only way to solve these problems is by rising up and motivating people to become entrepreneurs. Now is the greatest time in the US to own your own business.”
This year’s Black Heritage Festival other honorees include, Houston’s Mayor, Sylvester Turner, City Of Houston Press Secretary, Darian Ward, Fox 26 News Reporter, Isiah Carey, VP of Ebony, Williard Jackson and others.
Additionally, Velma was recently an award recipient at the Texas Black Women Expo. She is an award recipient of the Top Entrepreneur Leadership Award by Houston Power Professionals. Ms. Trayham has received many other local and national merits and honors. She is the CEO and Founder of ThinkZILLA PR & Consulting Group and is often referred to by peers and clients as one of the most sought after marketing experts in her field, helping clients to grow by 200% in as little as one year.
Velma is an expert connecting brands with the right audience and developing the right messaging to attract the audience. Ms. Trayham’s track records speak for itself, having worked with top US leaders, Pastors, and business owners. Velma is passionate, God-fearing and says she operates her business with Jesus Christ as the CEO of her enterprises.
