Antonio ShalemFloor Manager/ Cashier at Kilwin's Chocolates Franchise, Inc. “I have had the priviledge of working with Mr. Hill at an Arts Festival in Atlanta. At that time, Keith's capacity was that of Volunteer Coordinator of The N.B.A.F. Keith showed exemplary skill in organizing the team of volunteers. In fact, the five-day festival ran quite smoothly as a result of his leadership. There were a number of positive comments made about our presence there. I recommend Mr. Hill as a fine liason between artistic and entertainment venues in the City He has a wide angle on venues taking place in Atlanta. It was a pleasure to work with someone of his character. As an entreprenuer, I can identify with Keith's sound work ethic”
