Building In Me Time
Publicist Gwendolyn Quinn finds herself working days–and nights. Based in NYC, she specializes in developing stratagem and coordinating special events and brand development for clients who span the worlds of music, performing arts, business, not-for-profit and faith-based organizations.
Currently she is overseeing Aretha Franklin’s upcoming album release in September 2014; Karen Clark Sheard’s Inaugural International Summit for Women; T.S. Monk’s (Thelonious Sphere Monk, Jr.) forthcoming jazz projects, scheduled for release Fall 2014; as well as creating and pitching some of her television projects. She also reps another vocal legend, Chaka Khan.
“I often make ‘me’ time during my business travel. If I have a business trip to an award show, conference, media appearance with a client, etc., I always try to take two-to-four extra days at the beginning or at the end of the trip—I love to go to the spa, the beach, pool, love to sleep in at the hotel, get facials, read, sight see, dinning, theater, concerts and shopping.”
