NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As part of their ongoing Minority Leadership Series, which serves to empower and connect multicultural business professionals, Black PR Wire and Business Wire held a mixer and live discussion entitled “Brands in Demand,” recently. This event took place at the Business Wire HQ, in New York, NY.
VIP guest panelists included MELISSA KIMBLE – Founder, #blkcreatives and Digital Media Strategist; and SAKITA HOLLEY – Founder and CEO, House of Success PR. The event was co-hosted by JOLIE O’ROURKE, Black PR Wire’s National Fashion Correspondent, and SIMONE COOK, Black PR Wire’s Newsroom Manager.
Attendees were inspired by the “real life” words shared by the speakers, with topics ranging from “breaking away from the norm,” to “building your own hype to promote your brand.”
“Now more than ever, we have to make the most of every opportunity and don’t be afraid to fail,” said Sakita Holley. “It’s okay ...you’ll learn and grow from it in ways you never imagined.”
Guests in attendance also had a special treat with a taste of delectable Soul Food delights from Sylvia’s Restaurant. Homemade delicacies including fried chicken, collards, mac and cheese, crab cakes, and peach cobbler melted the hearts and taste buds for all of the guests.
“We are ever-so-grateful for our fabulous partners at Business Wire for opening their doors to us for our New York Mixer,“ says Bernadette Morris, CEO of Black PR Wire. “I know this event was rewarding, enlightening and very informative.”
