ATLANTA The Liberian Professional Networking Directory is creating an online edition

and expanding its database to include other professionals and investors who are interested in doing business in Liberia . This initiative will be led by T. Nelson Williams, II, President and a team of professionals residing in and out of the United States .


The first edition of the directory was published in 2006 listing over 600 professionals and businesses.  Liberian professionals and friends of Liberia were able to connect with each other around the world. Employment opportunities and resources were created.  Friends of Liberia and investors used this tool to obtain information on Liberian professionals.  Non-Governmental Organizations used the directory to contact special talents and the Liberian Embassy in Washington , DC obtained a copy for the library.


As a spin off to the Liberian Professional Networking Directory, The Global Professional Networking Directory (GPND) will be launched in June, 2007 and will serve as a global resource directory supporting professionals and business owners in a global environment. The 2nd edition of the Liberian Professional Networking Directory will be placed online in September, 2007.


Napoleon Outland, a project executive at IBM Corporation, will spearhead GPND’s  transition to the  internet and handle other technology initiatives. When asked about Mr. Outland’s affiliation with GPND, Williams stated,  “We are elated to have Mr. Outland on our team. He brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record in his profession.”


The online edition will be manifested via a web site powered by INTEGRATE7, an Atlanta-based information technology company.  This partnership will enable GPND to focus on its core business.


An International Advisory Council has been established to give oversight to the GPND/LPND leadership.  The listed council members have committed to serving a one-year renewable term.
