Welcome to Wednesday.
I’m sending a big shout out this morning to Sherrell and Chasity Cooper for their successful No More Wack Pitches webinar and to every person that showed up to receive their valuable expertise. Last night was so good, they had to do another one.
On July 25th, Sherrell and Chasity are going beyond the surface to present you in-depth strategies for building the perfect pitch, obtaining a reliable media list, and resources to improve your storytelling abilities. Click here to secure your spot.
And Sherrell is always on the move sharing incredible insight about leadership and driving innovation within the tech sector. She is featured on the latest episode of the Black Tech Unplugged podcast. Catch up on the conversation.
