Workshops & Keynote
Session 3

With her illustrious pedigree and amazing experience, Erika, a crowd favorite from last year, returns to Fohr U. She and James Nord will pick up the conversation where they left off last year, taking a look at the influencer industry from a high level. They’ll look at where it’s been, and where it’s going.

Our team will lead breakout sessions in their areas of expertise across themes of getting brand deals, content creation, negotiation and understanding analytics.


Igee Okafor will lead a panel of top menswear influencers in New York City. They’ll discuss in depth how they’ve grown (in a time period when no one grows), how they understand (and double-down) on their niche, and how they use their “menswear” group to collectively raise each of their profiles. Even if you’re not a menswear influencer, these business-minded yet artistic gentlemen will have something to teach anyone.

End the day with a keynote by Fohr CEO James Nord on the state of influencer marketing as we begin to look forward to 2019.
