Praise for the 17th Annual Asian Corporate Conference, Tokyo, Japan (May 16-18, 2007)

"Without exception, every session was superb, both content and participants. I think that the diversity was very refreshing. There was not one session that did not hold my interest....The topics such as demographics, environment, etc. proved to be intellectually captivating and stimulating." -- B. Scott Klika, BSK, Int’l

"Congratulations on a very successful event in Tokyo last week. I was able to attend a few of the sessions including the opening dinner, and was very impressed at the high level of speakers (it was a great coup to have the Prime Minister, Minister of Finance, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Vice Minister of MITI at a single event!) and the range of interesting themes covered." -- Patricia Bader- Johnston, IBM Japan

"The speakers were amazing, the panel discussions stimulating, the networking sessions well arranged and helpful, and of course, the food was great as well. Thank you so much for giving us this wonderful opportunity. I cannot express enough thanks for the amount of time and hard work your group put in. I feel fortunate to have been able to participate in such a high caliber conference." -- Yuri Ann Arthur, ANA All Nippon Airways Co., Ltd.
