Leading Entrepreneur and Award-Winning Author

George C. Fraser is Chairman and CEO of FraserNet, Inc., a company he founded some 20 years ago with the vision to lead a global networking movement that brings together diverse human resources to increase opportunities for people of African descent. He is considered by many to be a new voice for African Americans and one of the foremost authorities on economic development, networking and building effective relationships.

Books

Fraser has held leadership positions with Procter & Gamble, the United Way, and Ford Motor Company. He wrote three acclaimed books: Success Runs in Our Race; The Complete Guide to Effective Networking in the African American Community and Race for Success; The Ten Best Business Opportunities for Blacks in America and most recently, Click: Ten Truths to Building Extraordinary Relationships.

PowerNetworking

Fraser also publishes the award-winning SuccessGuide Worldwide: The Networking Guide to Black Resources. He is the founder of the annual PowerNetworking Conference, where thousands of Black professionals, business owners, and community leaders gather to discuss and do business with each other.

Speaker

He is the Chairman of Phoenix Village Academy; which consists of three afro-centric charter Schools that serves Cleveland and Akron inner city children. A popular speaker and author, Fraser's inspiring talks on success principles, effective networking, wealth creation, business ethics, and valuing diversity, are as popular among corporate professionals as they are among college students.

Media

Fraser has appeared on CNN and in The Wall Street Journal. Over the past decade, the prestigious publication, Vital Speeches of the Day, has selected, reprinted and distributed worldwide, five of his speeches--a first for any professional speaker in America, regardless of color.

Accolades

Upscale magazine named him one of the "Top 50 power brokers in Black America," and Black Enterprise magazine called him "Black America’s #1 Networker" and featured him on a cover issue. Personal growth "guru" Stephen Covey called him a "masterful teacher."

Visionary

TV host and journalist, Tavis Smiley called him a "visionary with the rare combination of leadership and management skills." Fraser was featured in The New York Times bestseller, Masters of Networking, along with former Secretary of State Colin Powell. He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate Degree of Humane Letters from Jarvis Christian College.

Testimonials

  • I'm telling you - I was just blown away. I spoke at a conference this week in Washington, DC, and one of the keynote speakers was George Fraser. He was so very, very strong. His presentation was about the importance of relationship building and networking and while he was speaking I kept flashing back to NAA and the big keynote presenters that you get every year. He's of that caliber. Combine that with a fabulous message and a great speaking style - and voila! Magic!


    Linda Larsen Communications, Inc.
  • There are few times in a man’s life that he will meet someone that makes a life-long impression upon him. Today was such a day for me. I tried not to sound star struck, but your message inspired me so, it challenged me and gave me a new resolve to do even more.


    BellSouth
  • You touched everyone from those attending the conference to those working the luncheon. Thank you also for giving the six goals. Not only were we left with wonderful words and facts to inspire us, but you also gave us the ability to do something to change those facts and keep true the words.


    National Black Public Relations Society Conference
  • Listening to your stories blessed me. All I can say is that I want half of your determination and will to hang in there and keep going.
