Intern to VP Workshop by BeNeca Ward presented by The Industry Unlocked
One glance at BeNeca Ward's resumé and her qualifications for giving career advice become obvious. She interned for HBO in her junior year of high school and climbed the rungs toward success until she became Vice President of Simmons Lathan Entertainment and Media Group. But even from such a high position—even after becoming an NAACP Image Award nominee and White House–recognized community leader—she hasn't forgotten about the ladder that got her there. While serving as VP, she established programs for interns and mentors to help the next generation of business people find their way toward success. During her three-hour Intern to VP Workshop, Ward carries over facets of that program, along with her own experience, to teach attendees what it takes to accelerate their careers: branding, networking, and moving their stuff into a vacant office when no one's looking. Ten main lessons serve as pillars for the seminar, providing insight into professionalism and management skills. The workshop is presented by The Industry Unlocked, a platform that equips aspiring business leaders with expert resources in order to gain knowledge, insight, and inspiration beyond what a single mentorship might provide.
