KANSAS CITY, MO. April 15, 2013. The 100 Black Men of Greater Kansas City invite professionals and organizations to be a part of the 2nd Annual Networking with the 100. This is a unique networking experience Tuesday evening, June 11, 2013, at the College Basketball Experience at Sprint Center, 14th & Grand, KCMO. Doors Open at 5:30p. The program begins at 6pm with open mic announcements and exhibits. For advance tickets or to RSVP, guests may visit network100.kcsoul.com.
Back by popular demand, this networking event is specifically designed to assist area professionals and recent college graduates in making “life changing” connections. After all, it’s the right relationships that lead to true success. The LIVE format helps forge these relationships. In addition to a standard business card exchange expected at networking events, the event features a unique EXECUTIVE Speed Networking session at the event. African-American Directors to CEOs at some of the country’s top businesses and brands are participating from companies like Hallmark, Sprint, UMB and AMC Theatres to name a few.
Participants may ask for career advice, a resume preview, seek industry insights or maybe even pitch an idea. It’s mutually beneficial, since executives may also come across contacts that could be a resource to them personally or professionally.
In addition to Executive Speed networking, the event includes a Panel—“Business Growth” a panel discussing developing and growing your business.
Brian Foster, 100 Black Men of Greater KC Chapter president, states “This event is just one of our efforts to support community Economic Empowerment, one of our organization’s core pillars. Moreover, in a society where racial stereotypes plague the community, and skew perceptions, this event relays to the community at-large that African-Americans are in positive, leadership positions, building businesses and communities worldwide.”
