Black Card Circle’s Executive Leadership Exchange – Shanghai, China

13 May

This is something I’m very excited about!  A dear friend of mine, Lotay Yang, CEO of the incredible Black Card Circle (and Founder of Black Card Circle Foundation, a personal favorite nonprofit), is hosting a ground-breaking, once-in-a-lifetime event in China.

This historic event will be at the China Executive Leadership Academy Pudong,  a stunning facility synonymous with excellence and renowned thought leadership.  An overview of the program, which is a remarkable bridging of the United States and China around the film and media industries, sounds simply amazing.  As a passionate fan of Chinese culture and history, and student of Mandarin for several years now, I can’t imagine a more unique and rare opportunity to learn in the most hands-on way possible all about doing business with China.

    The Black Card Circle’s Executive Leadership Exchange event sounds like a great opportunity for people in the film industry. Getting the chance to venture into the thriving Chinese film industry could indeed open up a lot of doors. The best part though about this event is that it is using culture as a platform for people to meet and share opportunities, which is an opportunity in itself that will offer a unique experience.
