Hi! I’m Keocia.
My personal and professional mission is to build successful small businesses and start-ups by maximizing the value of human capital through professional training that creates teams and individuals passionately aligned with their organization’s values and strategies. Keocia Services, LLC is a leader in, and dedicated practitioner of, building equitable and inclusive work community cultures that are genuinely and enthusiastically diverse, innovative, and perpetually practicing continuous improvement.
I’m a professional trainer and consultant with a background in leadership, development, and finance. I’ve been helping educate my regional and cultural communities on leadership, financial freedom, and entrepreneurship.
Keocia Perry started this company because she has always been passionate about helping people solve problems. She has been the go-to woman since undergrad when it came to researching and finding resources to help her community in areas with limited resources.
Financial literacy is the #1 problem minorities face and continues to hold us captive. She aims to teach young adults how to be responsible when learning about money, credit, insurance, assets, liabilities, and building businesses. Being an entrepreneur isn’t easy, but it’s rewarding when you strive to learn more and give back. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential in business. We need more minority leaders.
I look forward to talking with you and dovetailing the program(s) that suit(s) your needs, i.e.:
- Accelerator Programs
- Learning Events
The key to impactful and executable knowledge transfer is engagement. Engagement that goes full circle. Our practices are rooted in train-the-trainer philosophies, in which the communication we train your crew members while we simultaneously learn from them.
The result? 100% enthusiastic buy-in from them because they are heard and responded to, not just talked at. And they are eager to become generous knowledge transfer practitioners themselves.
