The Business Wire and Black PR Wire 2013 Minority Leadership Series, Part II, Feb. 27


In recognition of Black History Month and in celebration of their continued

partnership, Business Wire and Black PR Wire invite you to join us for our 2013 Minority Leadership Series.

The second of a two-part webinar, scheduled for Feb. 27 (1-2:30 p.m. EST) will feature news and information for the busy communications professional.

If you are trying to grow your business and are not thinking about partnerships, you should be. Establishing effective alliances can have a great impact on your business and your bottom line. In fact, American Express did a survey on small business trends and federal contracting which found that those who teamed up won 54 percent more prime contracts than average. Join us as we bring you a panel of marketing and communication professionals who will share insights on how they have grown their business through strategic partnerships and what it takes to find the right fit and make it work.

This webinar is FREE for all attendees. Please register at

Our panelists represent print and digital editors, producers, reporters, anchors and PR practitioners from around the country.
