Episode 807 Cynthia Chaplin interviews Shanika Hillocks, in this new installment of Voices, on the Italian Wine Podcast.
About today’s guest:
a multifaceted, multidimensional human being. Versatile and adept, I’ve worn several hats–publicist, influencer marketer, speaker, writer, brand strategist, podcast host, on-camera talent, and content creator–over the last 10 years of my professional career.
Regardless of the role, the core elements of my practice are consistency and storytelling for and by diverse audiences. I’m thrilled to take my values and lived experience to the clients and community I service via my brand strategy and marketing consultancy based in New York City. Most recently, I was awarded Wine Enthusiast’s 40 Under 40 Tastemakers of 2021.
