The 2013 Caribbean Movers and Shakers Networking Series kicked off last week in Atlanta, Georgia at the new luxury lounge “Kouture”.   Mr. Michael Thomas, President of Caribbean Media Network considered the event a success and I concur!

Although not all of the honorees were in attendance, those present were very pleased and enjoyed the evening of networking. One very busy honoree, television and film producer, Roger Bobb (Guyanese descent), was unable to attend due to his hectic filming schedule (he’s currently producing The Rickey Smiley Show) so we delivered his award and medal to him personally!

Thank you and biggups to event sponsors:  Highlanda Sound (who had the place rocking), Kouture Lounge, Red Bull, Grace Foods, Sprint, Authentic Plumbing, Abdalia’s Designs, Zeriba Media, Carlos Daniels (CPowered Fitness), Dr. Danielle Greene of Edgewood Dental and Nicole Ward of Virgin Hair Xtensions,  Also, a VERY VERY big thank you to Alice!!!
