SPEAKERS:

LYDIA EVANS | ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT | https://www.pure-swag.com

Lydia Evans’ first appearance on the hit show “Shark Tank” in 2015 has catapulted her onto a platform of success for her line of Soaps Washes & Grooming Essential products, but not surprising is the demand for her personal brand and the information she has about creating, managing and growing a brand that has been featured in Forbes twice, included in multiple celebrity ‘swag bags,’ celebrity brand collaborations with Cedric the Entertainer and more. With this success is a lot of interest in the woman behind the products and how she has established such remarkable success. Additionally, people want ‘in.’ “I am constantly asked how a person can become part of the SW&G® Essentials brand and I am now open to the idea of creating opportunities for this to happen through our new Brand Ambassador Program” says Evans.

As part of the effort to share what she has learned and create a format for entrepreneurs to connect, Evan’s is hosting the 1st Annual Entrepreneurial Expose’. The event will feature an impressive line-up of speakers including other entrepreneurs Andrea Shrestha, CEO of LuminAID, Stephen Hersh, CEO of Biaggi Luggage and Neil Werner, Houston franchise owner of Cousins Maine Lobster. Other guest speakers include Joy Lacy, Principal Consultant of Joy of Consulting, Carla Lane, CEO of Lane Staffing and Gary Dante, CEO of Suit Mart stores. Attendees will gain insight on building strategic partnerships, starting and running a business, becoming a franchise owner and addressing staffing and other needs.

“My motivation for creating the Entrepreneurial Expose’ is to inspire entrepreneurs to hold onto their dreams. I want to arm them information that will save them a lot of heartache, stress and money as they reach different levels of their business.” Evans said.

Sonya M. Sloan, M.D., aka #OrthoDoc, has established herself as a force to be reckoned with in the male-dominated field of Orthopedic Surgery. Licensed to practice medicine in several states, she travels the country to extend the impact of her unique approach to patient care. With a B.S. in Chemistry from Texas Tech University and an M.D. from the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB), Dr. Sloan completed her residency at Baylor College of Medicine where she made history as both the first African-American female Intern in General Surgery and the first African-American female Orthopedic Surgery resident. She has authored several published research projects in Orthopedic Sports Medicine and a joint venture with NASA, Johnson Space Center.

MORE THAN A WHITE COAT

Dr. Sloan is the quintessential fusion of her love for science and a passion to help others. Her commitment to impacting lives reaches far beyond the hospital walls and is evidenced by her work in her community and around the world. She has established two specifically purposed organizations called, AAACP (African American Association for Christian Physicians) and a ME&WE, Inc. (Motivating & Empowering Women to Excel), a non-profit which collectively reaches over 5,000 women daily. In 2015, she, along with The Luke Church, initiated the philanthropic efforts for an international health clinic with New Missions Organization in Haiti that now serves a community of more than 100,000 men, women, and children.

Dr. Sloan currently serves on the Board of Trustees for the Institute of Spirituality and Health and Health and Wellness Advisory Committee to DairyMax, a national partner to the NFL and Fuel Up to Play 60 initiative, which helps youth gain the proper daily nutrition. She has been an Adjunct Professor at Concordia University for four years with a focus on Health Care Administration. As a partner in Rowe Docs, LLC, she helped launched her Virtual OrthoDoc telemedicine venture as one of the first of its kind in healthcare for orthopedics.

In 2018, Dr. Sloan launched SLOAN STEM+Arts Summer Camp, a faith-based educational diversity initiative for minority students. She hopes to increase the number of minority students in STEM with early exposure and mentoring, understanding the impact this will make for generations to come.
