Janson Graves Speaks At IOBSE Conference

April 16, Janson Graves spoke at the International Organization for Black Security Executives (IOBSE), spring conference, in Bentonville, Arkansas. Speaking to an audience of more than 100 executive and students, his message was “Your Time Is Now.”

IOBSE, whose mission is to promote diversity in the industry of security, sponsors a spring conference each year in different locations. Janson represented Wal-Mart, as the only student speaker for this year’s Black Tie Dinner. “I was somewhat speechless because it was unexpected. But I also felt obligated because it was my opportunity to show my appreciation, and give back to an orgaization that’s done so much for me. They helped jump-start my career.”

Although Wal-Mart was this year’s principal sponsor, other sponsors of the conference included Target, Sears, Cracker Barrel, along with others.

Janson is the son of Mr. and Mrs. James Graves. He’s a graduate of Pine Bluff High School, and the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, and is an Asset Protection Coordinator for Wal-Mart, in Deltona, Florida.
