Bishop Neil C. Ellis will be inducted into the International Career and Business Alliance (ICABA) Global Hall of Fame during the organization’s inaugural weekend mega-conference in September. Ellis will be recognized for his extraordinary professional and faith-based accomplishment.
The four-day event that offers high-level networking, valuable information and opportunities while celebrating the accomplishments of iconic leaders of color across various industries will take place at the Diplomat Beach Resort, Hollywood, Florida, September 26-29.
ICABA selected Ellis, pastor at Mount Tabor Church, who they say will be the youngest living inductee into the International Civil Rights Walk of Fame in Atlanta, Georgia.
“We are excited and humbled with this impactful opportunity and responsibility to honor some of our most respected and accomplished leaders while creating valuable engagements during a plethora of events and activities that we will deliver during the weekend,” said Jerome Hutchinson Jr., ICABA founder.
Ellis will be inducted at the resort-style affair during ICABA’s 10-year anniversary.
Attendees will have the pleasure of learning valuable keys to success first-hand during exclusive and intimate engagements during scheduled master classes with hall of fame inductees. There will also be various workshops, a poolside reception, luncheons, lectures, networking, leisure activities and nightlife.
Ellis is being inducted alongside Folorunsho Alakija, corporate executive, Nigeria; Junior Bridgeman, entrepreneur, Kentucky; Xernona Clayton, civic leader, Georgia; Arnold Donald, corporate executive, Florida; Willie E. Gary, legal, Florida; Dr. Dennis Kimbro, academia, Florida; Yvette Miley, media, New York; Thomas Morehead, entrepreneur, Washington, D.C.; Dr. Vivian W.

During the ICABA Salutes Global Influencers event, six leading global influencers will be feted during a red-carpet party hosted by rapper, songwriter and Grammy Awards Trustee Rico Love, at which over 300 attendees featuring celebrities and influencers from various sectors are expected to be in attendance.
