We are pleased to share the news with you of our invitation to present a Plenary session for the upcoming US Business Leadership Conference in Chicago on September 21, 2010!
The topic is "Global Opportunities for Entrepreneurs with Disabilities', and represents an early public recognition on the exciting potential of people with disabilities helping themselves build successful start up's or grow an existing business through expanded international marketing channels.
Rob Crawford, one of the presenters, published the presentation on Slideshare, and it earned a place as a Featured Presentation on their Home page. This is a great distinction as this site gets thousands of PowerPoint slideshows and slidecasts daily. Please click on the presentation slide above to see it!
An important part of our message is that for many adults with disabilities, the motivation to succeed in business is not necessarily the same as it is for entrepreneurs without disabilities. Our motivations come from a different place for different reasons... some out of necessity to not be dependent on government or family support and others to make a signature difference in the world through their unique business talents.
We will also cover what we consider the "Top 3 Emerging Business Opportunities" for entrepreneurs with disabilities, and will post YouTube highlights in a future blog to try to capture the essence.
The other co-presentors are our very own accomplished and esteemed colleagues (themselves successful entrepreneurs) Debra Ruh of TecAccess and John Little of Successful Resumes' International, inviting you to look them up by clicking on their names to see the quality and humanity of their services.
