Motivational Speaker on Creativity, Marketing and Personal Branding

Motivational Speaker on Creativity, Marketing and Personal Branding

Hi! My name is Mallory Whitfield.

I teach people how to creatively market themselves online and how to tap into their creative potential.

I started blogging in 2001 and I began running my own business and selling at craft shows in 2004. I even wrote a book about it. I’ve also run my own e-commerce store in the past, so I’ve been on both sides of the fence as a small business owner. I worked as Content Analyst at FSC Interactive, a leading digital marketing agency, prior to taking on my current role as Director of Marketing at LookFar, a New Orleans-based software development studio. In 2016, I was honored to be included in the 19th class of Gambit’s 40 Under 40, which salutes the brightest innovators, artists and professionals in New Orleans.

I love teaching and empowering other creatives and business owners. I speak about digital marketing and creativity, and I am available for speaking engagements at your next conference or workshop. And if you need a dose of entertaining performance art at your event? I can do that too. Contact me about speaking at your event!

“It was an absolute pleasure having you at iRetreat. It was honestly one of the BEST sessions we've personally attended; I learned so much about Instagram to take-away and implement immediately, and know other attendees did as well.”

      “Whoah, DIY SEO Bootcamp was informative! My website is relatively new, but I'm always looking to tweak, improve, and generally make things better for all of you looking at my work. If the next two sessions with Mallory Whitfield are just as informative, get ready for some great changes (and I might need another notebook!)!”
