Imaging USA Speaker Spotlight On… Hajj Flemings!
Imaging USA 2018 will be here before you know it...three-to-six days of the best in photography learning, networking and partying! It's all going down in the Music City, Nashville, TN, January 14-16, 2018 (Pre-Con classes January 11-13).
Imaging USA is known far-and-wide as THE place to see some of the best speakers in the photography industry, as they take you on deep-dives into every topic you could want to learn more about. In order to get you even more excited (if that's possible!), PPA is going to spend the next several months highlighting our 2018 Imaging USA speakers.
Hajj is a leading brand strategist; speaker and tech entrepreneur that travels nationally inspiring people and brands to build, launch and grow their ideas.
In 2011, Hajj was one of eight entrepreneurs selected for the CNN’s Black in America 4: The New Promised Land Silicon Valley documentary with Soledad O’brien. It was during the filming of that documentary that he was exposed to the term meritocracy and how the lack of access in the technology space was creating a permanent underclass in communities of color which literally changed the course of his life.
Hajj founded Brand Camp University an educational platform that is preparing people for the future of work and produces the Brand Camp Summit a national gathering of thought leaders around technology, design and innovation. As an inaugural winner of the Knight Cities Challenge, Hajj founded Rebrand Detroit, a civic design and brand project. It is a multi-disciplinary collaboration with the residents, community stakeholders, and local government to innovate neighbors nationwide which we are piloting in Detroit.
His client list includes: Walt Disney, Pitney Bowes, Pfizer, the Detroit Lions, the U.S. Department of Defense, Iowa State University, University of Michigan – Ross School of Business, Davidson College, University of Detroit and more. He has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch, Mashable and CNN Tech Money on the subject of startups, digital technology and branding.
