Aerotek at BEYA

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of shooting for Aerotek, as they sponsored and were a major supporter of the Black Engineer of the Year Award Conference –  A series of seminars and awards dinners that was held in Philadelphia.  I love covering business seminars because I enjoy listening (as much as I can) during the sessions I am shooting much more than listening during political events (I’ve given up on all politicians).  Business seminars are usually much more interesting, and unlike in politics (and government in general) – I know there is accountability in business – which gives the speakers much more credibility in my mind over our elected officials!

Most of this conference was full of break-out sessions and award dinners, as well as a career fair going on during the entire event.  I particularly enjoyed listening to Aerotek’s (and former Philadelphia Eagle – which I had no idea up until this conference) Rodney Scaife deliver a great speech detailing the story of his career and inspiring the students at the student award gala.  I also really enjoyed listening to Maurice Kinsey speak in one of the break-out sessions.  There were also a number of performers at the various awards dinners, but by far, I was most impressed with Rashida Jolley, a harpist with a fantastic voice who blew everyone away!  Boris Kodjoe, the MC of the main Gala also seemed blown away by Rashida Jolley!

Here are a few photos from the weekend…
