2020 Leadership Conference & Expo

Saturday, January 11, 2020, 8:30 AM

The Gainesville Black Professionals' Leadership Conference is an annual event which is designed to be a day of inspiration, encouragement, and equipping to take any leader to the next level.  The Leadership Conference will provide the opportunity for business owners and professionals to network, exchange views and build partnerships as they explore their leadership styles, develop team management skills and learn to create safe and inclusive environments.  It is with such excitement, enthusiasm and anticipation that  we invite you to the 2nd Annual Leadership Conference and Expo. This year's theme is "RELEASE YOUR POTENTIAL!" When I founded Gainesville Black Professionals in 2016, I was very nervous, scared and unsure. Unsure if it would work, if people would attend our events, if there would be enough money to fund our projects and cover basic expenses. But even with the doubts and fears, I moved forward and GBP has emerged into the largest network of Black Professionals in North Central Florida. We produce a podcast, host events, publish a magazine and consistenly showcase the accomplishments and contributions of Black Professionals; all while advocating for and facilitating diversity, inclusivity and equity for all. Three years ago GBP was potential resting inside of me, once I released it, GBP has built relationships, supported collaborations,, impacted communities and changed lives. This conference is for every individual that has potential resting inside of them. Rather it's a new career, a promotion, starting a business, running for office, relocating, taking a class, starting a family, writing a book or directing a movie, whatever it is, imagine the impact it will have once you decide to Release Your Potential!! WHO SHOULD ATTEND? College Students Industry/Trade Proessionals Administrative Professionals Middle Management Professionals Industry Executives CEO, Business Owners Startup Founders Sponsored by Santa Fe College, Cox, Gainesville Chamber of Commerce, Team Dynamo Keller Williams Realty, Florida Credit Union, Maple Street Biscuit Company, LogoKicks and Heritage Wealth Management.
