Keynote and Empowerment Speaker

Kandia Johnson speaks at The African Women in Technology Conference

I went from working as a six-figure consultant to being on public assistance. Then I transformed my own life from freelancer to speaker, mentor, and founder of Kandid Conversations, a global communications and training firm that teaches people how to stand out from the crowd and market themselves for media attention, speaking gigs and influential leadership positions within their industry.


I’ve delivered workshops, talks and moderated panel discussions on stages throughout the United States and Africa.

My Aha Moment 

Throughout my journey, I realized too many people are playing it safe—stuck in self-doubt and living someone else’s definition of success. My story serves as my mission to empower college students, entrepreneurs, executives and employees to tap into their inner magic to make an extraordinary impact on the world.
