BeardedEagle Co-Founders Hit the Ground Running at the Black Enterprise FWD Conference, in Charlotte, NC
The Black Enterprise FWD Conference kicked off yesterday, 6/19, at the Charlotte Convention Center, in the city of Charlotte, NC. This year Devon and Lizzy will be panelist on the Couple to Copreneurs session that will be held on Thursday at 5:30 pm.
A production meeting was the launch of the event for Devon and Lizzy, where they received the logistics of the event and details about their session. It was an opportunity to meet other speakers and some of the event staff. The wonderful thing about this conference is the creativity in the air, and that was truly apparent in the production meeting as other speakers introduced themselves and their companies/products. Among some of the other speakers at this year’s event are heavy hitters such as Wendy Williams, media personality and entrepreneur; John Henry, partner at Harlem Capital Partners; Isiah Thomas, chairman, and CEO of Isiah International; and Ryan Leslie, Grammy-nominated music artist and entrepreneur, and of course Devon Morris and Lizzy Morris, co-founders of BeardedEagle.
The production meeting was followed by an evening mixer where the crowd of over 500 gathered to mingle, network and have some fun before it was time to get down to business. Alfred Edmond, BE‘s SVP and executive editor-at-large welcomed the energetic crowd and encouraged them to utilize their time here at the conference exchanging ideas, developing new relationships and collaborating on new ways to expand their businesses. This was followed by food, drinks and a Lip Sync Battle that was entertaining and at times hilarious.
The BeardedEagle team is looking forward to experiencing all that the FWD conference has to offer and walking away with bold innovative ideas and a plethora of new business relationships.
