Men and Women in Business Entrepreneurs Flaunt Their Crowning Achievements at the Historic Fort Harrison

Clearwater, FL, July 06, 2019 --( On Saturday, June 29th, The Herman and Mary Allen Foundation held their 3rd Annual Men and Women in Business Showcase in the Crystal Ballroom of the historic Fort Harrison Hotel with over 120 guests in attendance. The showcase helps small-business owners realize their potential through personal coaching and enhancing of their professional image.

The Men and Women Showcase is a program of the Herman and Mary Allen Foundation to help adults who want to improve their poise, business acumen and presentation skills. Over the past eight months, participants receive coaching on professional image, public speaking and other aspects of personal growth. This program culminates each year in a showcase of the participants’ new skills.

Clemence Chevrot, the Community Affairs Director of the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization, opened the evening by welcoming guests saying, “I believe that working together to achieve competence is absolutely vital. Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard wrote, ‘The test of true competence is the end result. To the degree that a man is competent, he survives. To the degree he is incompetent he perishes’.”

The participants were introduced by Kia Wells, founder and CEO of the Men and Women in Business Showcase program. Wells spoke of the personal journey taken by the participants over the last eight months and how the program promotes both competiveness and fellowship between those involved.

One of the contestants said, “I am so grateful and happy to be here. I had so much fun at the showcase. Honestly, I can’t believe I made it to this point. I’m going to write a book to inspire others that can achieve what I’ve done because no one should be able to hold you down! Thank you for letting us use your space to hold the event.”

Participants introduced themselves and their activities center stage with a unique presentation to the audience followed by interviews by Regina Bree, Executive Director of the Men and Women in Business Showcase, to test their public speaking mettle.

The two who demonstrated the most competence in all categories were ultimately crowned the King and Queen of 2019.
