About Me

My Story: Hey Friends. My name is Keisha Mabry and I created a platform called heyFRIEND to teach people how to build genuine, authentic relationships using my proprietary technique called Friendworking. But whyyyyy? Because no matter how you cut or slice the piece of cake, pizza or pie everyone has had to do a little networking from time to time. Everyone and everybody but let’s be honest—we hate it, we fake it and we don’t always know how to do it. And that’s where I come in.

I use my 10+ years of Friendworking experience and expertise to help people and companies get connected to the people and resources needed to catch their dreams. I have been featured on National Public Radio, the Nine Network, Fox 2 News, Next Step U, Huffington Post and Blavity for this work and not to toot my own horn—okay I’m lying I am tooting my own horn—but I also have a TED talk called What I Learned from Meeting 100 People in 100 Days. And before you ask...yes I did it! I met 100 people in 100 days four times in my life going on five.

And I say all of this to say, relationships are kind of my thing. I breathe relationships, I eat relationships, I speak, teach and sleep relationships. I blog relationships, I vlog relationships and if I had a dog her name would probably be Relationships or Hey Friend. But anywho, like I said, relationships are my thing friends and I have the book to prove it. So...if you need someone to help you curate and cultivate genuine, authentic relationships with clients, mentors, advocates, sponsors and partners, or with co-workers, employees, family, friends and frans—ain't nothing to it but to do it so let’s get to it.

My Book

Hey Friend: 100 Ways to Connect with 100 People in 100 Days is a must-read, a fun read and the ultimate guide to teaching people how to meet new peeps. In this book, readers learn how to: make friends everywhere (on planes, on trains, in lines and while they dine); be connectors not networkers and yes there's a difference; connect with 21st-century techniques like hashtags, swag, podcasts, retweets and street teams; share their "who" not their "do" when meeting peeps that are new and use 100 creative techniques to curate new friendships while cultivating the friendships they already have.
