As we quickly approach the 2019 Empower Me Summit, we wanted to share the thoughts of the attendees and some of the important takeaways from the last Summit to demonstrate the impact the Summit not only has on attendees and the community during the Summit, but how that impact resonates long after the Summit has concluded.
One of the greatest ways we can present the value and the impact the Summit has is to speak with our speakers, panelists, and attendees and learn how the Summit has impacted them. Here are a few testimonials we’ve gathered from past attendees:
“I have had the pleasure of serving as Moderator and panelist at Marlin Wood’s Summit. Not only are these events inspiring, but they provide clear and practical advice on how to succeed and soar higher than you ever imagined,” said Robert J. Powell.
“It is my pleasure to provide my experience of the EMPOWER ME Seminar. I have had the opportunity to participate as a speaker/facilitator, as well as an attendee. As a speaker, I must say that I found the preparation and behind the scenes process to be quite well organized and seamless. I felt comfortable and thankful to be able to be a part of a well-oiled machine. I also thoroughly enjoyed getting together with the other speakers, immediately prior to the event, for one last run through and to be reminded of our focus for the attendees. This event draws professional people from all age groups and industries, and the attendees are excited to be in a room full of like-minded individuals, so being a speaker, under those circumstances, is a treat because you know that your audience is engaged and eager to hear what you have to say.
As an attendee, I enjoyed being able to network as well as sit back and take it all in. The food is always delicious and presented well, and the agenda runs in such a way that you don’t feel shorted in any way. There’s time to mingle, and there’s time to sit and soak up knowledge.
I highly recommend this event to anyone who can make it. In fact, make it a point to be there because the cost of entry is minimal and the take-aways are abundant,” said Nicole.
“The Empower ME Summit afforded me the opportunity to be in the room with like-minded individuals whose goal is to elevate professionally to help transform our communities. My participation helped energize me to elevate my brand. Marlin has collaborated with some of the most brilliant minds in the region. I am thankful for the participation to be a speaker,” said Vernard Alexander.
Important Takeaway’s from the Last Empower Me Summit
Marlin Woods, founder of the Empower Me Summit, provided a few of the key takeaways from the last Summit that demonstrate the impact the Summit has on the attendees and the community:
The responsibility to black business support.
There were several vendors and several entrepreneurs that attended the Empower Me Summit who were able to transact business with either business-to-business or business-to-consumer. They also created opportunities for more business after the Summit.
The mentorship that continued through that platform of mentorship.
The attendees of the Summit took full advantage of the platform of mentorship we provided. There were mentors who identified themselves, and there were mentees who were drawn to the different mentors, and those relationships are still enforced today.
An excitement for what is evolving and materializing from the Summit in Pittsburgh, in the way of community confidence.
There was an excitement about there being this thing that is evolving into a platform and is creating a confidence within the black community that we can sustain and take care of one another.
