How Can I Help You?

I want clarity and confidence
I want to become a recognized leader in my field
I want media attention and speaking engagements

Who’s That Girl?

Too many people are playing it safe—living someone else's definition of success. I’m here to help you clarify your superpowers, own your magic, and get noticed by the right people. I’ve helped my clients get booked on TV shows, launch creative businesses and position their brands for speaking engagements, TV news and features in print and online publications. I also teach leaders how to communicate to win in business and life.

But hey it's really not about me.

Kandia Johnson

Julia Lipowiecka–Workshop Testimonial

It’s very rare, in the digital age, to meet someone who represents himself or herself in person just as they do online. However, Kandia’s fiery passion for her craft is so much larger than a media persona.  Kandia’s skill and eye for talent are just a few of her finest qualities. She has been able to not only develop an effective brand strategy for my company but also has enhanced my personal brand visibility. As a result, I have become a co-host on one of PBS’s longest running cooking shows, America’s Test Kitchen, and my brand, SheChef Inc. is growing exponentially. I’m very fortunate to be on what I’m sure will be a stellar line up of talent in The Kandid Agency.

Chef Elle Simone TV Co-Host, America's Test Kitchen & Founder SheChef Inc.

Finding Kandia online was one of the best business development gifts that I received this summer! Kandia gave me useful information that instantly increased my productivity and impact on all of my social media accounts. Within four weeks of our first conversation, I increased my Instagram followers by 20%, developed a themed content strategy, and received an opportunity to serve on a PR panel and become a paid career contributor. Her words of wisdom helped me to feel more confident about creating content for my target audience and her resources gave me the extra boost I needed in order to measure my progress and be accountable.

Kandia brings knowledge and adaptability necessary to bring her clients success. She is great at both development and delivery and brings credibility when end users need it.

“Kandia helped us breath life into the Taungana STEM Expo – A one week multi-industry immersion and entrepreneurship programme that forms part of a fellowship connecting young high school girls from rural South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe to STEM fields. She provided strategic communication guidance and public relations support. I could always rely on Kandia and her expertise as we worked with the craziest timelines. You rock Kandia! ”

Sandra Tererai, Founder Taunguana

“Kandia Johnson and I worked on several projects together. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious. And her get-it-done, helpful style is what makes her shine! “Top Qualities: Personable, On Time & Creative.”
