Focused on bringing together women who own businesses, procurement buyers and supplier diversity managers from major companies, the Marketplace includes workshops on strategic planning for sustainability and growth, strategic sourcing, a luncheon featuring keynote speaker Chin-Ning Chu, and an opportunity to build relationships at the trade fair as well as the WAVE (Women Adding Value Everyday) networking reception.

“This is the fourth annual Marketplace and every year, GWBC members and corporate partners increasingly see results from this event. We have had women business enterprises (WBEs) travel from Tennessee and the Carolinas to participate and forge or continue to build business relationships,” said Roz Lewis, Executive Director of the GWBC. “We are excited about our workshops, which are equipped to provide the attendees with ways to work on their business. Elizabeth Thornton, CEO of Entrepreneurship Advantage Incorporated, will lead the workshop on strategic planning and we have panel representatives from major corporations such as Coca-Cola Enterprises, Georgia Power and UPS who will provide “straight talk” on how WBEs fit into the strategic sourcing process.”

These workshops will also provide those procurement representatives who are Certified Purchasing Managers through the Institute for Supply Chain Management an opportunity to gain continuous education hours (CEH) towards their recertification.

In addition to the strategic workshops, the Marketplace will have noted international author, Chin-Ning Chu, speak on strategic thinking.

“We are very excited to welcome our keynote speaker, Chin-Ning-Chu whose many books such as Do Less, Achieve More and The Art of War for Women gives powerful perspectives and dynamic strategies for women to get ahead in the 21st Century,” stated Eyvon Austin, GWBC Board Chair and Supplier Diversity Manager for The Coca-Cola Company.

Chin-Ning provides many strategies for fighting victorious warfare in a male-dominated world through choosing the advantageous battleground, positioning for victory before the battle begins and utilizing small forces to overcome the mighty.

Her work is highly regarded by the global media including diverse advocates such as CNN, Great Britain's Financial Times, USA Today, The Washington Post and the Asian Wall Street Journal. She has had cover stories for Success Magazine and the international editions of People Magazine, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and China Daily.

“The Power of Partnering” Marketplace is one of many events the GWBC hosts throughout the year to support growth of women’s business enterprises as well as diversity of suppliers within major companies. Unique to the Marketplace is the trade fair in which WBEs and supplier diversity professionals can meet face-to-face and build a professional relationship by getting to know the supplier diversity professional’s needs and how the WBE could fulfill them with her products and services.

“Last year’s Marketplace was a real turning point for my business,” said Marlene Kelly, owner of Exhibits South and a member of the GWBC since 2002. “After attending several GWBC events throughout the years, I had started building relationships with supplier diversity managers from major companies as well as my fellow WBEs. I learned of an opportunity to bid on a large job with The Coca-Cola Company and won it. A contract like this can change the future of a business like mine. The key for me was to get to these GWBC events and leverage the tremendous networking opportunities they present.”

The sponsors of this year’s Marketplace include Georgia Power, AT&T, Aflac, Bank of America, The Coca-Cola Company, Coca-Cola Enterprises, Home Depot, Delta, Spherion, Comcast, Turner Broadcast System, UPS, Bennett International Group, N.E. Georgia Temporary Services, Exhibits South, MDI, Team Worldwide, Global Resource Management and The Robart Companies.
