On Sunday, June 5, 2016 the Influencing Action Movement hosted its third annual IAM Networking Brunch at The View. The five-year-old nonprofit organization celebrated another year of connecting professionals across the Philadelphia area in meaningful ways to enhance their growth in a creative and entertaining way.

This is the Influencing Action Movement’s signature annual fundraising event, providing area professionals the opportunity to network in an intimate setting while enhance their personal and professional brands. All event proceeds support the organization’s mentoring programs for Middle and High School students. With over 60 attendees present, professionals from across the region also received complimentary professional photographs and headshots by Jasmine Alston Photography.

The event also featured “The Executive Decision” panel, a shark tank style competition for entrepreneurs, this year with a special focus on media and journalism. Three finalists competed to win a $500 cash prize to invest in their personal brand and an opportunity to be mentored by KYW News Radio Community Affairs Reporter and President of the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists Cherri Gregg, Esq.

Cherri Gregg, who was also named the 2016 Executive of Year by the Influencing Action Movement for her stellar success as a business mogul in media and a thought leader in the region, participated on “The Executive Decision” panel alongside Women in Media co-founders Danielle Paige Jeter and Haniyyah Sharpe-Brown. All three women questioned the finalists on how their brands impacted the community and financial sustainability of their organizations. In the end, WJMS Radio pitched by Jaymie Bowles, the station’s founder and NYC host, won the competition.

In 2015, the Influencing Action Movement expanded its impact in Philadelphia providing services to over 3,500 individuals through its mentoring programs, networking events opportunities and community service projects. For more information, visit www.influencingaction.org.
