I want to thank you again Lynita Mitchell-Blackwell for putting together the Emerging Executive Capstone Course. The workshop was more than expected and worth way more than the ticket price.

Every presenter was phenomenally engaging and informative! I will definitely be at the next one. #feeling blessed
Response from Lynita Mitchell Blackwell:
The Emerging Executives seminar is a program of the Jewell Jackson McCabe Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI). I served as a facilitator on Digital Content Management, Finding New Business & Closing the Deal, and Branding.
Lynita served as our keynote speaker for the 2012 MSK Leadership and Life Coaching Progam. She also served as our Mistress of Ceremonies for our first Women of Excellence Scholarship Dinner. She is a dynamic and inspiring leader and speaker. She kept the audience engaged, she used humour, personal stories, and her one of a kind charm to inspire and motivate our graduates and all of those in attendance. She is professional and certainly someone you would want to hire/contract with for your speaking engagements. Powerful!
