2015 SAIR EVENT introduced South African authors and publishers to branding guru Janet Wallace. We were over the moon excited that she flew in all the way from the USA to attend and share her magic with us. So it was a no brainer that I needed Janet Wallace to become part of the SAIR 2016 event.
Founder of two thriving businesses, Social Deviants, a social marketing company that helps creative entrepreneurs build online business platforms that profit; and UTOPiA, an annual writing conference and awards ceremony that nurture and celebrate writers of fiction, Janet has a passion for people, books, and dark chocolate-covered almonds. She uses her expertise to help clients grow powerful communities and create top-of-mind brand recognition and authority.
She hosts events and speaks regularly to local, national and international groups about how to effectively attract raving fans, loyal clients and increase sales while building businesses of purpose using your powers for good. She believes in being bold, taking risks, big adventure, and the importance of believing in yourself and embracing greatness, uniqueness and opportunity.
Previously a brand strategist for a London-based, award-winning agency, Janet has worked directly with clients such as ooVoo, Oxygen Women’s Television, Film4/Channel4 London, Elle magazine, and a growing client list of New York Timesbest-selling authors. She has also been an adjunct professor at Middle Tennessee State University where she lectured on Social Media for Authors. She lives in Nashville with her husband, two children, two rescue dogs, and one rescue cat.
