"By combining forces with CNBC, we've been able to attract a wealth of marquee speakers to our iCONIC events," says Eric Schurenberg, president and editor-in-chief of Inc. Media. "This year, we're adding a new element to our star-studded programs—a series of practical, hands-on workshops to help entrepreneurs master new skills and really take their businesses to the next level."
"T-Mobile is known for breaking outdated rules and restrictions for customers – and that's why it's teaming up with iCONIC to share unfiltered business advice, mobile solutions and best practices with entrepreneurs across the U.S.," said Mike Katz, Senior Vice President for T-Mobile @Work.
At the full day events in New York and Los Angeles, attendees will be invited to participate in a custom social media marketing workshop hosted by T-Mobile, in collaboration with Facebook.
