Author/Business Spotlight: Pam Perry

Pam Perry is an Author, Speaker, PR Coach, and Social Media Strategist, delivering online branding and marketing solutions for best-selling entrepreneurs, authors, and nonprofits. She is the Chief Visionary of Ministry Marketing Solutions, Inc. and internet radio host of Chocolate Pages where she has interviewed authors such as Kirk Franklin, Rev. Run, Demond Wilson and Yolanda Adams. Perry, an Emmy-award winning TV producer, is also a columnist with Gospel Today and blogs for MyBlogalious.com, Examiner.com on Branding, Marketing and Public Relations 2.0 tactics. She was a Top 100 Winner in a competition by the home-based business Web site StartUpNation.com, which identified Perry’s Detroit-based Ministry Marketing Solutions among “the outstanding unsung heroes of our economy—home-based entrepreneurs.”

A former public relations officer with The Salvation Army, Perry founded her own agency in 2000 to help predominantly African-American churches, authors and artists promote their events and releases. A few years ago she began to focus more on helping clients understand how to use social media, from blogs and Facebook to YouTube. In addition to helping run promotional campaigns and events, she teaches churches and individuals how to maintain their own online presence. “Publishers have been putting more responsibility onto authors to promote their books, but many of them don’t know how to do it,” she said. “They don’t know about blogging and podcasts.” Perry said that following blogs and online updates, she believed that “video will be the next big thing … not highly produced, but the slice-of-life type of things, with a mobile phone.”

Lillian Lincoln Lambert speaks about the power of persistence, resilience, courage and morality in surmounting hurdles that prevent people from reaching their full potential. 

As the first black woman to receive an MBA from Harvard Business School and a barrier-breaking entrepreneur in the mid 1970’s, she draws upon her varied experiences to show people how to use obstacles and barriers as stepping stones to higher levels of achievement and success. She understands the power of storytelling and uses her personal story to inspire audiences to dream big, act bold and pave their own paths. As a member of National Speakers Association, she continues to learn new techniques to inspire her audiences. 

Her memoir, “The Road to Someplace Better: From the Segregated South to Harvard Business School and Beyond” was released by John Wiley & Sons in January 2010. It chronicles her journey as she struggled to find her place in the world, a journey that had many twists, turns and its share of roadblocks. 

Born on a farm in the segregated South, she sensed that a better life awaited her. At the age of 18, she journeyed to New York City and Washington, DC to seek my fortune. After a few years of gutting out menial jobs as a maid and typist, she came to the realization that her journey was internal and that education would be her ticket to a new world. At the age of 22, with loans and scholarships she enrolled in Howard University and obtained a BA degree. In 1969, an era forever linked with the civil rights and burgeoning women’s rights movements, she earned her MBA from Harvard Business School. She did not set out to make history as the first African American woman to receive a Harvard MBA; she simply wanted a better life. 

After Harvard, she founded Centennial One, Inc., a building maintenance company that was started in her garage with a few thousand dollars. For twenty-five years, she was President and CEO until the company was sold. Over those years, Centennial grew to $20 million in sales with more than 1,200 employees.

In 2003, Harvard Business School awarded her the Alumni Achievement Award, the highest award bestowed on its alumni. The award recognizes recipients for “their contributions they made to their companies and communities, while upholding the highest standards and values in everything they do.” 

In March 2010, Enterprise Women Magazine inducted her into their Hall of Fame, the magazine’s highest honor “reserved for women who have devoted a lifetime to building dynamic businesses or vital nonprofit organizations and giving back to the women business owners’ community in significant ways, making a tremendous difference in the lives of others”. 

Some of her clients have included Virginia Commonwealth University, Bennett College, University of Richmond, Greens Farms Academy, Noble and Greenough School, Belmont High School, James River High School, American Business Women’s Association, Mississippi Bar Association, Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond and UBS Financial Services.

 She serves on the Board of Visitors at Virginia Commonwealth University and Board of Directors for Harvard Business school African American Alumni Association. 

She is an avid golfer and enjoys traveling, reading and listening to jazz. She is active in her community and sings in her church choir.
