Aleya Harris

Flourish Marketing

Most catering and events business owners fail at making money doing what they love because they don’t know how to market themselves.  Aleya Harris offers marketing education and tools that help catering and events business owners stop staring at a blank calendar and start getting and keeping a consistent stream of clients.

Aleya knows that your audience members want to be successful business owners. In order to do that, they need to get and keep a consistent stream of their ideal clients. The problem is, they are great at catering and events, but don’t have expertise in running a profitable business. That makes them feel discouraged.

Your audience members deserve to make money doing what they love. As a former catering company owner and chef, Aleya knows how important it is to work in your passion. That’s why for the past 12 years, she has been focused on helping over 1,000 accounts, brands, and business owners to be successful.

Her engaging, interactive, and actionable sessions help audiences stop feeling discouraged and broke and instead become the wildly successful owners of the businesses of their dreams.

Getting to Know You

What topics do you enjoy speaking on the most?

I love speaking on topics like: The Marketing Funnel, E-mail Marketing, Storytelling & Brand Messaging, and Narrative-Based Websites to Convert More Visitors into Customers.

What topic would you love to tackle next?

Often it is difficult to know what next steps to take in your business because you are so immeshed in the daily operations. I would like to help wedding, catering, and events business owners learn how to evolve their businesses to reach their full potential. I am developing a Business Evolution Framework which illustrates the way finding “signs”, roadblocks, and tools of a successful business growth journey. The framework is designed for the established business owner who has passed the foundation building stage and wants to figure out how to grow instead of becoming obsolete.

How would you describe your speaking style?

I am a dynamic interpersonal communicator and presenter with the exceptional ability to inspire, motivate, and equip my audience. From big stages, like Catersource, to webinars, and events, I love opportunities to connect, help people develop, and create the space for my fellow entrepreneurs to see their visions manifest.

What has been your favorite speaking engagement to date?

I enjoyed speaking at Catersource 2019 all about how to create strong social media accounts in my session “Under the Influence!”. The Catersource audience is always stellar, but this particular group was engaged, inquisitive, and dedicated to their own success. I was impressed by how much they were dedicated to using the information I presented to make a positive change in their businesses.

When heading to a wedding industry conference, I never leave home without my….

Little pink bag to collect attendee business cards and a little notebook. I love making personal connections and really want to see the people who come to my sessions be successful. I enjoy following up, being available for questions and cheering them on.

Where would you love to speak next?

Internationally would be awesome! I love to travel and being able to help people on a grander scale would be amazing.
