Happy New Year!
To begin with, it gives me great pleasure to start Season 4 of the Born To Talk Radio Show Podcast heard live every Monday, from 1-2PT. My guest on January 4th will be Devon Blaine. Devon is the President & CEO of The Blaine Group.
When I say, Conversations + Connections = Community, Devon is a fantastic representation of those words. Through her client Connections, I have had engaging Conversations with multiple guests on my show building a Community of authors and non-profits. Now I am going to turn the table and start this new year with Devon!
Let’s Meet Devon.
To start with, Devon has a very interesting background beginning in the early ’60s and ’70s. Formerly an actress, Devon had roles in The Babysitter, Love Minus One, and The Beverly Hillibillies. She was also a model, and stunt driver. Perhaps all of these experiences were her springboard into the Public Relations field!
The Blaine Group.
Devon established her agency in February of 1975. The Blaine Group specializes in developing and implementing public relations campaigns and marketing strategies. They have comprehensive communications campaigns or as stand-alone entities. They also handle investor relations and financial public relations activities for its publicly-traded clients.
Devon is experienced in all facets of the communications industry. Besides designing communications campaigns that help businesses maximize their success, she has long been active in numerous entrepreneurial organizations. Devon has earned a reputation as “the entrepreneur’s entrepreneur.”
She has incorporated the knowledge gained from these ventures into the philosophy of The Blaine Group. The agency has an award-winning track record in serving the public relations needs of fast-track emerging-growth companies and major corporations alike.
Along with running her business, Devon is involved in other organizations. She was three times president of the Los Angeles Venture Association (LAVA), a founding board member, and a past president of the Los Angeles chapter of (NAWBO) National Association of Women Business Owners. And if that isn’t enough, she also serves as a mentor for the Stubbs Alderton & Markiles Precelerator, the South Bay Entrepreneurial Center, and the Innovation Incubator at Cal State University Dominguez Hills where she is also on the advisory board.
Needless to Say.
Devon lives a productive life. How does she do it all? We will hear about her success stories and the hiccups in running her business as she celebrates 46 years this February! That’s quite an accomplishment!
Tune in to hear her story!
