Valaida Fullwood likes new ideas – especially those that help others.

Fullwood, a self-proclaimed “idea whisperer,” has a gift for turning them into successful programs as a writer, project strategist and creative consultant. The Morganton native focuses her interests on education, philanthropy and the arts. As a professional, Fullwood managed international economic development projects for major multinational corporations before opening a consulting practice in Charlotte.

Part of what drives Fullwood’s passion is relationship building, especially across cultural barriers. She’s done it in corporate environments that span 20 countries on four continents. In Charlotte, she organizes events for foundations, corporations and nonprofit agencies.

Fullwood is also keen on philanthropy, lending her time and talents to Charlotte ViewPoint, Community Investment Network, On Q Productions and the Wesley Heights Community Association. She contributes a blog to blackgivesback.com and is a founding member of New Generation of African American Philanthropists. As part of her giving circle, Fullwood authored “Giving Back,” a series of profiles of African Americans giving back in their communities. Her first book, “Giving Back,” was named one of the “10 Best Black Books” of 2011.
