About

Asia Society Northern California hosts private Executive Roundtables every month with industry leaders in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Program topics are around headline news, business analysis, and critical issues coming out of Asia.  Launched in September 2017, these monthly briefings have grown in popularity to generate wait-lists. Most events are off-the-record to encourage open debate and discussion.
