Location: FSU-PC Holley Academic Center

Special Presentation by Dr. Tererai Trent

Quoted as being Oprah Winfrey’s “favorite guest of all time,” her captivating presentation is a moving message of empowerment and change.  In it, she will share her experiences of growing up in rural Africa, overcoming humble beginnings to achieve her dreams and give back to others.

In May 2011 Oprah Winfrey stated, “[Tererai Trent] symbolizes everything I believe the Oprah Show stands for… her story encapsulates the essence of every lesson we’ve shared over the past 25 years: hope, your thoughts create your reality, gratitude, it doesn’t matter where you come from.  She proves you can keep reaching for your dreams, that one person can make a difference in the world—and above all, you have the power.”

Please help me out. We have a remarkable local web site technology company, with a focus on business marketing. We offer a web site formula which enables and supports growth for the small businesses, including those that are home based. Is this the right forum for us?. Please get back to me a soon as possible to allow me enough time to opt in as a business presenter or would it be better for me to be an observer.
Thank you for your advice
