A New Yorker by heart, Lagosian by blood and Parisienne au fond du coeur, Tola St. Matthew-Daniel specializes in media relations and creation of thought-leadership platforms for corporations, governments and NGOs. Tola has spent the last nine years mastering the art of strategic messaging and storytelling and branding her clients in major media outlets across the globe representing a cross-section of clients including the MAC AIDS Fund, the Bill and Melissa Gates Foundation, the U.S. Commerce Department, Siemens and Intercontinental Hotels Group. A graduate of Drexel University, Tola holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications and English Literature as well as an MPA from Sciences Po – L’Institut d’études politiques. Her days typically start and end with a prayer because it keeps her centered. Red meat, French wine, good books, liberal blogs, one-way tickets, Superman (because we all need a savior) and good music are just a few of her favorite things.
