Candace G. Carson

Candace G. Carson

Founder & CEO

Candace G. Carson is both a person and entrepreneur to watch. Originally from New York, by way of immigrant parents Ms. Carson is a 1st generation American, an intellectual, and a multi-talented, multi-dimensional, and multi-faceted entrepreneur in every respect.

Candace’ entry into the professional world of booking professional speakers and consultants, was a wonderous result of her being a lover of their offerings first and foremost! Addicted to listening to professional speakers like: Zig Ziglar, Tony Robbins, Les Brown, etc. and reading the material of great thinkers and authors like: Malcolm Gladwell, Zadie Smith, and others-  a discerning taste for what made a speaker good at what they did and what made a speaker not so ready to be called ‘professional,’ was born.

This love for listening to professional speakers, combined with her consistent passion for learning, reading, writing, various subject matters, the arts, and travel fueled her decision to start her entrepreneurial journey by building her own agency. It was an organic and logical choice.  Ms. Carson determined years ago that she would be a successful entrepreneur. (She’s still actually considering becoming a successful physician, and/or performer.)

Lily of the Valley Speakers Bureau was her original entrée into the world of bookings, brokerage, and intellectual property purveyorship.  This tiny but mighty agency was where she made all of her mistakes. Here is where she learned as much as one could about meeting & event planners, professional speakers and their intellectual property, and more. With the help of her business mentor: Mrs. Betty Garett, a world-renowned speakers bureau owner, Candace realized that she needed to rebrand the company so that her matured knowledge base, and innovation more importantly would be reflected in the brand. That was when The Intelligentsia Agency, Inc. was born.

She could hear a common thread of messaging within the various speakers, despite the fact that they each belonged to different industries. The common thread was: human potential.

Naturally curious, studious, and passionate about the inherent potentiality embedded within every human being, the correlation between that potential and the impact it can have on industry, became apparent. A passion was born for connecting the most intelligent minds, and the most profound souls with the best organizations and audiences around the world. The synergy that occurs there gives her great satisfaction.

Candace enjoys learning, reading, singing, listening to music, acting, writing, traveling, and all things pertaining to plant based eating.

Ms. Carson’s 1st book release, her 1st memoir “The Zeitgeist of Chameleons That Roost,” is scheduled for release in 2018 and it is sure to inspire, motivate, and change the world.
