Millions of dollars in potential group business has been pledged by the head of African American media powerhouse, Black Enterprise (BE).
On a recent visit to New Providence BE President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Earl “Butch” Graves Jr. promised potential group movements to the country from his organization, with a projected value of millions of dollars.
At a meeting with Minister of Tourism and Aviation Dionisio D’Aguilar, Mr. Graves outlined a number of significant events that his organization has the potential of hosting in The Bahamas over the next two years.
“The groups include the organizations’ multi-million-dollar Women of Power (WOP) Summit – a four day executive leadership conference; the Women of Power Executive Retreat, and the BE Executive Golf Outing,” Graves indicated.
Graves Jr. pledged a partnership with the country and expressed that he was encouraged and hopeful for a continued relationship, with mutual business opportunities between The Bahamas and BE.
Also, as a result of The Bahamas’ association, participation and sponsorship of BE events in The United States over the past year, the company was able to sign up a few groups that are now scheduled to host meetings in The Bahamas.
One of the group’s – Soul Reborn Conference – is scheduled to take place in Bimini at the Hilton Resort, July 12th-15th.
The Soul Reborn Conference is expecting an attendance of about 150 and has been organized by and will feature best-selling author, speaker and success coach, Cheryl Polote-Williamson.
