September 21: “THE CASE FOR EDUCATION AND DIVERSITY AS TOOLS FOR BUSINESS GROWTH”

 

 

On this powerful episode of MOBE Mondays, Curtis Symonds, Chairman of the MOBE Symposium and Founder of HBCU GO TV, sits down for an in-depth conversation with Jack Myers, Founder of MediaVillage and AdvancingDiversity.org, and Philip McKenzie, Executive Director of AdvancingDiversity.org. The media and advertising industries underinvest in educational resources and talent retention programs by more than 500% compared to most growth industries. What are some of the tools necessary for long-term business growth and how do we attract and retain a diverse workforce? Join this panel of experts as they take a deep-dive into this important issue.

The session will be Live on Facebook and on YouTube on the #MOBESymposium page.

“MOBE, Conversations and Case Studies You Don’t Hear Anywhere Else” #OnlyatMOBE

STAY SAFE! STAY HEALTHY!

FOR THE LATEST COVID-19 UPDATES, PLEASE VISIT: CDC.GOV

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, MOBE decided to postpone our 2020 Symposium weeks before other events began canceling and states went into enforcing #StayAtHome measures.

We believe people are the most important resource we have in life, in business, in society, in our culture and in our families. And while it is important to network and we look forward to connecting and learning from each other, it is more important for us to be well, safe and healthy, so we can get through this and create opportunities for the future. We applaud and appreciate all of the selfless Heroes on the frontlines doing their best to keep us safe, fed and to save lives.

Follow us on Social Media for updates and news. @MOBESymposium

Be safe, be healthy and we look forward to reconnecting soon!

MOBE (Pronounced “moe-bee”)  Marketing Opportunities in Business and Entertainment, where Marketing, Technology, Sports,and  Entertainment professionals converge with early-stage/growing businesses, business professionals and corporations. The MOBE Mission: To facilitate discussion, instruction and business building relationships.

Since 1992, the MOBE Symposium has delivered business building, education and mentoring resources for African-American professionals; sports, entertainment, and other entrepreneurs. MOBE facilitates deals between these companies and large corporations to grow their businesses.

The brand remains strong, as it delivered on an intention most conferences don’t: To build business!!! MOBE has a proven track record for presenting strategic alliances and professional development.

  • Our registrants directly influenced the spending power and impacted a vastly larger urban consumer base.
  • More than $187 million in business was generated to African-American companies as a direct result of associations conceived at MOBE symposiums.
  • MOBE is where content producers, talent agents, and others seek out the partnerships that will propel them to the next level.
  • MOBE is the convergence of brands, agencies, media companies, producers and entrepreneurs.
