The 2008 Big Expo & Job Fair

The 2008 Big Expo & Job Fair was held on Thursday, August 21st and was a wonderful success.

The Expo was a jam-packed day full of business seminars such as "Dress for Success to Land Your Dream Job" by Sara Hathorne of Illustra Image Consulting and "Creating A Culture to Support and Encourage Peak Performance" by Dr. Gloria Wright of Wright & Associates . There were tons of give-aways provided by exhibitors and a fabulous Fashion Show with our very own Lovely Diva--Kelly Greer of Gwinnett Magazine as the spokesperson. The night was completed with our largest Business After Hours of the year which included live jazz music, food, drinks and networking.

". . . Hi Ladies, The Big Expo is behind us. I was so proud of the female companies and women run businesses."

If you have any success stories about the Big Expo & Job Fair, please post your comments to this blog. We would love to use them in the future to show what a great county Gwinnett truly is!

This year's BIG Expo & Job Fair was the biggest yet with over 7,500 attendees. Back in late March when Expo became my project (and life), I knew it was going to be great! This was reinforced when I had to get creative and add booths with the event still three weeks out!

I am already brainstorming ways to involve GLOW at the 2009 BIG Expo & Job Fair. The BIG Expo is also a great place to reach many professional women and share with them the many opportunities the the Gwinnett Chamber and Gwinnett's Leadership Organization for Women has in store for them.
