The 8th Annual Small Business Summit entitled “It’s all About the Path You Choose – Using the Right Strategy to Make the Best Moves” featured Maurice Ashley, the first African-American international grandmaster in chess, as the keynote speaker. As a nationally-recognized motivational speaker, Ashley discusses the character-building effects of chess. He also examines how the strategies used in the game can be translated into strategies to be used in business, or in any facet of life. This annual summit was presented by the Vance-Granville Community College Small Business Center and the Warren County Economic Development Commission in partnership with the Lake Gaston Regional Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center and the Chamber of Commerce of Warren County.
