A Word From The President

“We certainly live in “interesting times.” This face becomes evident every time we open a newspaper and look at what is happening in the world around us. As a business person it is vital to stay current in the face of an ever changing world order.


We continue to offer a fascinating list of speakers who have made a significant impact in the world arena. You will be inspired by their successes and learn first hand about their forecasts for change. Our events are exciting, sometimes controversial, always current.


\You can tailor your invitations to the most discerning of individual tastes and interests. What better way to entertain existing or prospective clients? It’s more than interesting. It’s a smart way of doing business.


We invite today’s guests to join us and experience the dynamic fare we will be offering in the coming months. 


As always, I wish to express warm appreciation to our distinguished corporate table subscribers for your enthusiastic participation. A special thanks to our sponsors for their generous support.”
