In addition, Mr. Padmore has recently launched an initiative called Elevate-Entrepreneur along with one of his associates, Dr. Anita Davis-Defoe, a successful development specialist, author, speaker and certified grant writer. Mr. Padmore's vision is to provide cohesive information (synergy) geared towards working your dreams and goals into reality. He will do this by providing purpose-driven information and activities directed at the "you" factor. This will be done by utilizing seminars, workshops, publications, health and better life conferences, e-conferences, retreats, trade shows, and other events that will provoke you to positive action in order to accomplish dreams and goals.
