Deesha Dyer is a speaker, writer, Creative Event and Strategy consultant, and most notably known as the former Obama Administration Social Secretary. The Philadelphia native became a White House intern at the age of 30 and completed a seven-year tenure there that honed her expertise in event coordination, logistics, protocol, and statecraft. Her storied career is unconventional at best, with themes of reinvention, drive, and a commitment to community service integrated throughout.
An award-winning event producer, Deesha has been featured in national media outlets including TIME, The New York Times, Marie Claire, Essence, Vogue, Refinery29, Forbes, The Root and Washington Post. She currently serves as the Executive Director of beGirl.world, a global empowerment and education travel program for teen girls that she co-founded in 2014. A charismatic speaker with unbridled optimism, she now shares her message of hope, hard work and living life on your own terms with audiences around the world.
