FraserNet’s George Fraser Brings His PowerNetworking Message to the Prince George’s Economic Development Corp. To Share Business Growth Strategies
By Nelia Dashiell
For the naturally gregarious among us, networking can appear effortless, while the introverts are fixed to the cheap seats wishing to get in the game. But even those who are shy or socially awkward can be good networkers. That’s because networking is skill that can be mastered.
Interested yet? Good.
Set a reminder to drop by a networking revival lead by networking leader George C. Fraser, chairman and CEO of FraserNet, Inc., billed as the number one network for African-American professionals worldwide. Fraser has been recognized by Forbes and U.S. & World Report as one of the leading networking and small business empowerment leaders in the nation.
The event, titled “The Key Networking Strategies for Building Your Business Exponentially,” features Fraser, who will discuss a range of topics such as effective networking, wealth creations, and business ethics. A graduate of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, Fraser is also the author of “Click: Ten Truths for Building Extraordinary Relationships,” and “Race for Success: The Ten Best Opportunities for Blacks in America.” In 1999, he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate Degree of Humane Letters from Jarvis Christian College.
Fraser started his Lyndhurst, Ohio-based company 30 years ago to create a global networking movement that brings together diverse human resources to increase opportunities for African-Americans. During his quest to expand opportunity through human capital Fraser also created the Power Networking Conference, which hosts thousands of black professionals , business owners, and community leaders to learn more about the science of networking, entrepreneurship, and wealth creation.
Attendance at this event also ensures an 80 percent discount on the Power Networking Conference slated for July 5-7, at National Harbor. The conference has been held at the Harbor since 2016 as part of a five-year contract.
“The Key Networking Strategies for Building Your Business Exponentially” event will be held from 10 a.m. – noon on Thursday, Feb. 15 at the Prince George’s County Economic Development Corporation.
