Starting month of June 2018, I will be collaborating with local businesses in Dallas to organize a forum for MASS CAPITALISM. The goal is to network with professionals and make a forum that is both educational and entertaining. It will also be a great networking opportunity with local employers for ones who are looking for jobs as well as it would be good for small businesses to showcase their capabilities to members of DFW community.
You are invited for the first Quarterly forum on 24th June 2018 and the details can be found in the flyer attached. Please note that this is invitation only and if you have any specific questions, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
