South Florida Boss Babes You Need to be Following
The hustle is real, especially with women in South Florida, and we’re so lucky enough to have the opportunity to be surrounded by a bunch of successful bad a$$ boss babes on a regular basis. Between the connections we make in the blogging world to the networking opportunities we have through the PR side of our business, we are constantly learning from inspirational women. Whether its women working within the community to raise awareness for a special cause, or simply killing it in the ‘real world’, these are the boss babes getting our attention these days.
There’s nothing we love more than connecting with women in our industry, especially when they’re women that ‘get it.’ You know what we’re talking about; the women that empower one another to grow and collaborate over being competitive and malicious. This brings us to one of those women who ‘get it’, Durée Ross the Founder of Durée & Company PR & Marketing (www.dureeandcompany.com). Durée is a South Florida Native who founded the company in 1999.
Durée & Company boutique public relations, marketing & special events firm with offices in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and Aspen, CO. They’re in the business of getting the media’s attention. With clients ranging from nonprofits, restaurants, lifestyle, entertainment, travel and medical, Durée & Company specializes in turning the normal into the news. Durée Ross has over 20 years of trusted experience and it shows.
There are so many reasons why we respect Durée and her team of fabulous ladies, but one of our favorite things is their ability to brand themselves. In an industry where you’re laser-focused on branding your clients, it’s easy to lose sight of branding your own business, but Durée and her team have it all covered. Their social media content is professional, fun and on-point!
