“It is an honor to be recognized as a business, as a woman and as an African American by receiving this award,” said Dr. Garrett. “I speak at several events that honor other business leaders, thus is it quite the distinction to be invited to such an event that will acknowledge both myself and my company.”
The “Top Businesses in America” program honors individuals who have established themselves as a community of entrepreneurs that continue to transform the way we move our economy forward. According to Diversity Business’ website, “In recognition of these outstanding accomplishments and contributions, the awards are designed to celebrate and support business owner efforts in order to generate public awareness among their peers, customers, press and to organizations who seek their products and services.” Sponsors of the event include; Apple, AT&T, Wal-Mart, Coca-Cola, Office Depot, Toyota, Cisco, and Verizon, among others.
Dr. Garrett is available to speak with members of the media or as a keynote personality at conferences and events. Ms. Garrett’s media management firm is JumpStart Ink. Contact 702-749-5925, ext. 210 for further inquiries.
