Diversity. Partnership. Growth.
These are all very good reasons to gather at 8am on a Tuesday morning at
the AT&T Institute
amongst a plethora of successful corporate
Executives and thriving business owners. As AT&T continues to work
in diversity, the major Tele-Communications firm hosted the Meet The
Primes Matchmaker Event in its Hoffman Estates branch. The event's purpose was to effectively match its business model with the services offered by other growing companies. The Rainbow Push Coalition joined the Chicago Minority Business Development Council, The Women's Business Development Center, and The Illinois Elite SDVOB as event sponsors.
Enthralled at his long lasting business relationship with AT&T, Rev.
encouraged the corporate audience to expand the
marketplace and essentially learn to live together in the economy. Marshette Turner manages the International Trade Bureau at Rainbow Push,
presenting a versatile training and networking ground for minority
business owners in any industry. The forum meets at 8:00am every
Saturday morning at the RPC Headquarters located at 930 E. 50th
St.in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood. 17 small business owners, who participate in the program, were in
attendance at today's event, taking advantage of a pivotal opportunity to partner with such a notable company as AT&T. This event was an excellent event to get the members into high-profile networking opportunities on a grand level. Any business owners who are interested in learning more about the
program can contact Marshette Turner at (773) 256-2725.
It was a pleasure to hear from AT&T heads: Paul
LaSchiazza-Illinois President; Tim
Harden-President of Supply Chain & Fleet Ops;
Marianne Strobel, Exec. Dir. of Global Supplier Diversity. Overall, the event presented a wealth of knowledge and insight straight from the industry's top dealers. David Steward, CEO of World Wide Technology, Inc. gladly offered his best secrets to success and wealth including the story of how he started his global business more than twenty years ago. Sue Clancy, CEO Biz Phyx, explained her company's business model and gave resourceful information that can apply to any company in any industry.
