October 19, 2015 – On Friday, November 6, 2015, Leaders in Energy will participate in the BL NOVA Business Expo. The event will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at The Bechtel Conference Center, 1801 Alexander Bell Drive, Reston, VA. It will feature over 100 exhibitors and sponsors.

Janine Finnell, Clean Energy Ambassador and Leaders in Energy Founder, will emcee the event. In addition, she and other Leaders in Energy members will be available throughout the day at the Leaders in Energy booth to discuss our upcoming networking and education events in the clean energy, environmental, and sustainability arena.

Fairfax, VA, is one of the wealthiest counties in the nation. For those Leaders in Energy members who are in business or looking to network with others in business, this Expo will provide an excellent opportunity to meet with members of the Fairfax and Northern Virginia business community.

There will be four seminars: “Leadership”, “Sales”, “Networking” and “Social Media”. Karen Cleveland, CEO of Fairfax Leadership Inc, will lead “Leadership Presence”. Fred Diamond, Diamond Strategic Marketing, will lead “Six Strategies to Get Your Business Sales Rolling”. Basile Lemba, Fairfax Networking Breakfast Club Host, will lead “The Two Cardinal Rules of Networking”.

“Why would a business person want to attend this event?” said Basile Lemba, “because as Bill Gates noted, “The most dominating businesses in the future will be the ones with high-tech and high-personal touch”. The most powerful and influential movements throughout history have been the ones that practice “inclusion” – they reached out. As Henry Ford stated, “Coming together is the beginning and working together is success”. This expo is where you will get the access and contacts you need to flourish and prosper while getting communities and the economy into high gear!”
