Day 1 Black Enterprise Women Of Power 2014 Welcome Reception Recap
The Black Enterprise Welcome Reception was packed to the brim with women from all across the country coming together to network and empower each other.
The Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit, held in Boca Raton, Florida this year, was opened up by Black Enterprise President and CEO Earl “Butch” Graves Jr., who welcomed the accomplished and amazing group of women.
“We want to thank all of you who traveled from all over to join us and not only learn from this conference, but teach us as well,” said Graves Jr. He also made light of the fact that many escaped some cold weather up north to have some fun in the sun down south. “I know we are all happy about going from 20 degree weather to 80 degree weather,” said Graves Jr., to laughter.
Graves Jr. also thanked the title sponsor of the event, State Farm, for their support throughout the 9 years of the event’s existence.
“We have to thank State Farm because they have been here since the beginning really helping us to expand the reach of this great conference,” said Graves Jr.
