Weston, FL, June 16, 2014 — On Friday, June 6, a sellout audience was on hand to hear Dr. Dennis Kimbro passionately deliver a “preacher styled” speech on all things related to wealth for the black community.  Dr. Kimbro challenged, encouraged and provided a pathway to wealth for a sold-out audience when he shared insights from his book: “The Wealth Choice” and laid out his “7 Laws of Wealth”.  Florida International University’s Executive MBA Program hosted the ICABA Business Forum at its Brickell Campus (downtown Miami), which attracted a diverse audience of local professionals ranging from entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, corporate executives, civic leaders, and students.  The audience gave Dr. Kimbro several standing ovations and swarmed him afterwards to buy his books and get his signature.

Forum attendee, Velton Showell, CEO, Strategic Solutions commented: “I know that every participant received valuable information from all the presenters. I thoroughly enjoyed the networking and transparency of all the participants especially the opportunity to personally meet Dr. Dennis Kimbro, and receive a copy of his latest book “The Wealth Choice”.  It was truly a memorable experience. I also enjoyed meeting the other presenters and business owners, all brainstorming and sharing ideas to further themselves individually, as well as collectively.”
In addition to Dr. Kimbro’s presentation, attendees participated in three (3) workshops:
