CAMEKA SMITH, Founder and CEO/The BOSS Network. Topic: How Leaders Can Grow and Leverage Their Professional Networks
Speaker, trainer and award-winning entrepreneur – just a few words that describe Cameka Smith, Founder of The BOSS Network, a community of professional and entrepreneurial women who support each other through conversation, online engagement, and event-based networking. BOSS is “Bringing Out Successful Sisters” to promote and encourage the small business spirit and professional development of women.
The BOSS Network has become one of the fastest-growing women business communities, garnering accolades such as 10 Best Career Sites for Women by Forbes.com, one of 9 Twitter Accounts to Enhance Your College Experience by BlackEnterprise.com, and many others.
She established The BOSS Network in 2009 to empower women to become independent and successful by utilizing the power of networking and technology. Since then, The BOSS Network has evolved into a go-to resource for companies seeking female influencers as their target market. As a one-stop-shop for career and entrepreneurial minded women, it offers professional connections, resources, and marketing and promotional opportunities.
As the author of 7 Steps to Grow Your Professional Network: A Guide for College Graduates and Professionals in a Tough Economy, Smith frequently travels to companies and college campuses across the country with her non-profit, BOSS On Campus, to speak or lead training workshops.
