William Dean Brown, founder and Chief Chocolate Officer (CCO) at William Dean Chocolates, began exploring his artistic talents at an early age.  Although trained as an educator, William became involved in the world where he co-founded a software company and later joined an emerging technology company. After the bubble burst, he reinvented himself by moving to Tampa, Florida. Add in a few cookbooks here and there, and he learned how to create delicious gourmet chocolates, of which, if you saw the live stream on, we showed a few! These little delicious creations will also be showcased at the Business Symposium coming up soon! If you wanted to see or find out how you can obtain some of this delicious top notch chocolate, head over to:!
