Power Move Monday
What is your Power Move for Networking??
“The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone;
it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.”
Since its inception, Power Move Monday has fashioned an
energy that transcends the social aspects of networking
and evolved into an intellectual, social and business
networking environment that makes available the potential
to allow entrepreneurials, business owners, and progressive
thinkers (males and females) to be involved in the progressive
growth of Jacksonville, Florida.
Goal of Power Move Monday is to provide a venue for current
and future people of influence to network and build
relationships with one another. The vision is for Power Move
Monday to serve as a catalyst for the information, organization
and motivation needed to take Jacksonville to the next level.
This networking opportunity has crossed cultural, generational,
gender and intellectual lines that once were limited by the
accessibility of progressive thinking individuals and young
business leaders. The future of Jacksonville’s growth is with
its youth because of their progressive thinking and embracing
of ethnic and cultural diversity.
