Morning Roundtable with Better Business Bureau CEO

Friday, June 28 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am • Organized By Better Business Bureau of Greater Kansas City
8080 Ward Parkway, Suite 401, Kansas City, MO 64114


Marvin Carolina Jr., President/CEO of the BBB, is a former business owner with experience teaching entrepreneurs how to grow their businesses and increase their profits. Want to improve your business? Join him on the 4th Friday.

Marvin Carolina Jr. has expanded the role of the 100-year-old organization and has added helping entrepreneurs find success to its mission. He comes from corporate America where he spent 20 years teaching entrepreneurs how to improve and scale their small and medium-sized businesses to land contracts with large clients, helping them win contracts totaling $100 million. He ran a successful business in Atlanta, so he knows what makes a business thrive and what makes a business collapse. He has written articles for the Kansas City Star and Thinking Bigger Business magazine, and he has written two books: Across the Middle: Entrepreneur Strategies for Growth and Success (2016) and Build to Win: A Playbook for Entrepreneurial Success (2017).

Join Marvin at the BBB on the 4th Friday of the month, from 9 to 10 am, for his informal CEO Roundtable discussion, where he shares his experience and expertise and discusses business topics. All are welcome—entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs.
