Poster for Fonzworth Bentley Event


Advance Your Swagger:A Night with Fonzworth Bentley

An author, musician, television personality and former assistant to P. Diddy, will speak about his book, “Advance Your Swagger: How To Use Manners, Confidence, and Style To Get Ahead” as well as his experiences in the music, television, and fashion industries.


“My manners were the first ingredient that set me apart from my peers,” notes Bentley. Now, in this one-of-a-kind book, Bentley shares his surefire strategies for success.

Just how does a guy move from Atlanta to New York City without knowing a soul in the entertainment industry and become, in less than two years, the P.A. to one of the biggest moguls in hip-hop history? Bentley attributes his accomplishment to one key equation: Manners + Confidence + Style = Swagger. With this formula, Bentley transformed himself into an icon of unflappable grace, elegance, and good manners - and now he’s on a mission to help you step up your game, advance your swagger, get ahead, and live out your dreams.
