"Your brand story is the key that unlocks creativity, uniqueness, and brand affinity. Sharing your narrative drives meaningful change and connects you to the right audiences at the right times."

Chinua Joi Ivey

I know firsthand the impact of storytelling. As a foster child in Washington, DC, I learned the value of my voice and how words have power. Storytelling changes lives and gives agency to the speaker. Each narrative begins with a heart for advocacy - both to speak up and listen intently - so that authentic and meaningful transformation can occur. Every story can make an impact, and I am thankful to help others become more effective communicators!

My commitment to effective communication practices can be found in my books, speaking engagements, teachings as a communication studies instructor, and businesses - Ivey Media Agency and Radiance Press. I am a doctoral candidate in communication with over 20 years of corporate communication experience with the Federal Government, Fortune 500 companies, and nonprofits.


As the Founder and President of Ivey Media Agency and its publishing imprint, Radiance Press, it is an honor to develop and promote the narratives that make various brands and causes noteworthy! My husband and I reside in West Georgia. Together, we have a beautiful, blended family.


Mrs. Ivey has led training sessions and workshops for nonprofits, corporations, and state government organizations. She is also a communications studies instructor at Bethune-Cookman University and Atlanta Technical College. Her interactive, communication-themed workshops and seminars provide relevant information that individuals and teams can readily apply. She warmly welcomes questions and various viewpoints that reflect diverse worldviews, while also making room for small group discussions and activities. Additionally, she offers interactive workshops for teens and college-age young adults from her book series, including IRIS Diary and the IRIS Identity Workbook.


Her speaking topics include:

  • Strategic Communication Principles & Tactics

  • Public Relations for Entrepreneurs and Thought Leaders

  • Public Speaking Principles & Tactics

  • The Dynamic Transformation of Performance on Social Action

  • Teen Dating and Intimate Partner Violence Awareness and Prevention
