As part of this recap, we asked Amjad his thoughts on the event.  Here is what he had to say. “The FSMSDC is a fantastic organization that promotes minority and diverse businesses in state of Florida.  It’s a chapter of NMSDC, the largest business organization for minority businesses.  The event panel that Sam and I spoke on was about showcasing successful minority owned companies where parents and their sons and/or daughters work together. We were thrilled to share the stage with some very successful CEO’s, and share our experiences with the attendees.  It was an amazing evening.
