The Nov. 10 edition featured special guest speakers Blayne Alexander of 11Alive, Yvette Caslin of rolling out, lifestyle and beauty writer Kimberly Walker, Greg Cole of Nancy’s Buckhead and James Brashears of Corporate Code. The intimate setting allowed the guest speakers to answer all inquiries from the attendees, including questions about networking, media relations, businesses decisions and more.
