|Our 5th Annual Community Leaders Reception is this coming next Thursday, July 21st!|
Come join us for one of the premier networking opportunities in Southern California. This annual event is an exclusive opportunity to meet the movers and shakers in the Asian Pacific Islander American community from leaders in government, business and the nonprofit sector. Don't miss out on this evening of community empowerment!
This year's keynote speaker is David Kim, CEO of Baja Fresh, La Salsa, Sweet Factory, Ignite Enterprises, and several other companies, as well as the author of "Ignite!: The 12 Values that Fuel Billionaire Success."
A serial entrepreneur by nature, David's equity market investment group specializes in acquiring distressed companies and turning them into high-powered profit centers in record time. David also appeared as the featured CEO on CBS's hit show, Undercover Boss. The Baja Fresh episode of Undercover Boss was billed one of the "most surprising episodes yet."
