Michael Eric Dyson, Al Sharpton, Cornel West top list of impressive speakers at the PowerNetworking Conference 2006, Black America's Largest Networking Conference, being held in Atlanta (GA). George Fraser, America's Networking Guru and CEO of FraserNet, Inc, producers of the PowerNetworking Conference, has assembled a list of over 150 speakers, presenters and workshop leaders for this event that is expected to attract more than 3000 attendees.

Most individuals perceive networking from the point of view of ‘what’s in it for me.’ At the PowerNetworking conference, we have demonstrated that the only way to receive is to give; the only way to harvest is to plant; the only way to connect is one person at a time.

Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Dr. Cornel West, Dr. Julianne Malveaux, Reverend Al Sharpton and Reverend Jesse Jackson top a list of over 150 speakers, seminar leaders and panelists set to appear at the Fifth Annual PowerNetworking Conference, Black America’s largest networking event. PowerNetworking 2006 will be held June 14 – 18, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. George Fraser, CEO & Chairman of FraserNet, Inc. and America’s networking guru, noted by Black Enterprise Magazine, has assembled a list of “Who’s Who” in keynote speakers, workshop presenters and panelists who will train, inspire and empower the more than 3,000 visitors expected to participate in this year’s conference.

FraserNet, Inc., producers of PowerNetworking, moved the annual conference from Cleveland (Ohio) where it originated in 2002 and has been held for the past four years. PowerNetworking 2006 comes to Atlanta with an established record of attracting Black and other minority-business owners and as well as other professionals. With a reputation of providing a place to “connect” at the kind of networking conference that brings results, this five-day conference is the ideal place for business-to-business and business development.

Speaking at a recent kick-off Atlanta reception for PowerNetworking 2006, George Fraser said, “Most individuals perceive networking from the point of view of ‘what’s in it for me.’ At the PowerNetworking conference, we have demonstrated that the only way to receive is to give; the only way to harvest is to plant; the only way to connect is one person at a time.”

PowerNetworking 2006 [PNC] will feature programs that are the hallmark of the conference including the National Town Hall Meeting with Reverend Al Sharpton, Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Dr. Cornel West and others. BrainShare: A Celebrity Auction of Intellectual Capital, another integral part of PNC, is a fundraiser for deserving HBCU students to attend future conferences. Previous celebrity participants in BrainShare include notables such as Oprah Winfrey, Stedman Graham, Tom Joyner, Spike Lee, and Iylana Vanzant. Other conference events include a Mega-Mixer featuring national recording artists; nationally televised plenary sessions; two power luncheons and 35 plus workshops and panels.
