Keynote speakers for this year are Melissa Proctor, CMO of The Atlanta Hawks, and Chanel Frazier, Managing Director of BlackRock.
In addition to the keynote addresses, both days will feature workshops, panels, and fireside chats led by C-Suite and other executives, including an intimate conversation with the Emmy award-winning anchor and reporter Lori Wilson of Atlanta’s WSB-TV Chanel 2 news.
