Today we’d like to introduce you to Erica Dias.
Erica, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Erica’s Table of 20 was created back in 2014, after moving to Atlanta and not finding the right tribe in Atlanta. My grandma had recently passed away and I was having a hard time, and really missed our Sunday dinner moments, with family and close friends. So one day after going through that tough time, I decided to re-create my own Sunday dinner concept with Erica’s Table of 20.
The goal of the event was to inspire, connect, engage with other men and women and have real conversations like I did when we had our Sunday dinners with my grandmother. I added a spin to my event, by highlighting women and men who would be open to sharing their story, and not the surface level story. With 30 events under my belt, a book called Faith It Until You Make It, and an engagement with over 600+ people here we are, traveling state to state with my Erica’s Table of 20 concept.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road… But there has been way more good things that have come out of this experience than bad!! I am so grateful.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Erica’s Table of 20 – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I am the visionary, creative director behind Erica’s Table of 20 so I do it all. I also am the owner of a Public Relation & Marketing Firm called The B Firm PR so I also provide all of the PR & Marketing for my events. I hire vendors, and hand select each guest that inquire about attending my event. What sets my concept and event apart from other events is that I highlight women and men, we laugh, cry, engage and really connect. Everyone is treated the same and I honor each guest, no one is singled out but it is very exclusive, and only 20 people can attend.
The is always a real call to action at each event and no event is like the last one. My events are diverse in age and nationality. I have traveled to Dallas, LA, San Francisco, Houston, New York, and Atlanta to host my event and this year we are hitting up more cities.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love that there are soooooo many creative people here. I don’t like that we are still dealing with culture divides. I make sure that I have all different types of nationalities at my events.
