The goal with co-sponsorship is to promote and connect the association, University of Georgia alumni, UGA students and Atlanta business professionals with each other by providing an opportunity for networking and access to professional/educational enhancement material.”

Brooks will provide key insights into his best-selling book on Amazon, “What You Don’t Know Is Hurting You: 4 Keys to a Phenomenal Career.” He will explore the four keys and his new e-course for the book.

Negril Village is located at 30 North Ave NE in Atlanta, and the event will be held on the second floor.

It will begin at 8 p.m. with networking and cocktails, followed by an author Q&A moderated by UGA alum Eric Jones. Brooks will sign copies of his book after the Q&A.

Accelerate Your Career will be co-hosted by Nathan Williams, president and CEO of iN-Hale Entertainment LLC, and M.J. Harris, an internationally recognized financial CEO and motivational success teacher. Williams co-authored the book with Brooks and Harris partnered with Brooks on the e-course.
