GSMA OPENS NEW NORTH AMERICA OFFICE IN ATLANTA

New Facility Puts Mobile Industry Organization in Center of Atlanta Tech Scene, Provides Strong Foundation as GSMA Works with Members to Advance Development of Mobile Industry

The GSMA announced it has opened its new North American regional office near Midtown Atlanta, a move that will enable it to better serve its members across the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. At a ceremony attended by dignitaries and leaders from the Atlanta technology community, the GSMA officially cut the ribbon for its new 15,000 square-foot offices, which are located in Armour Yards and currently accommodate nearly 90 GSMA employees.

“The opening of our new North American office marks the start of the next chapter for the GSMA in the region,” said Mats Granryd, Director General, GSMA. “Our new location in Midtown Atlanta puts us at the very center of the vibrant, dynamic tech scene in the city, enabling us to draw on a rich talent pool and engage even more closely with the broad technology ecosystem that has developed here.”

On behalf of its members, the GSMA leads a range of programs designed to drive collective industry benefit in areas such as future networks, the Internet of Things, mobile identity and others.

Most notably, in September 2017, the GSMA launched “Mobile World Congress Americas, in partnership with CTIA”, the first mobile industry event addressing the entire Americas region. Held in San Francisco, the inaugural Mobile World Congress Americas attracted more than 21,000 visitors from 110 countries and territories, and in 2018, the event moves to Los Angeles, where it will target not only the mobile ecosystem, but also the media and entertainment and content creation sectors.

Once a railway yard, Armour Yards has been transformed into a vibrant, mixed-use campus that delivers a life- and work-enhancing environment where businesses can thrive. The new GSMA office space, designed by HLGstudio, draws on influences from progressive loft-office environments prevalent in vibrant urban areas around the world today....

Keith Meyers with Keefe, Bruyette and Woods, KBW on Capital Club Radio

Guest: Keith Meyers On this episode of the Capital Club Radio, Keith Meyers joins chairman and CEO Michael Flock, one of the leading investment bankers in the specialty finance world, to discuss his transition from accounting to investment banking, his work and now management in the debt buying and collection industry and tips to note for those interested in the trends as well as staffing of those in investment banking and debt buying. Biography Mr. Meyers is a Managing Director based in Atlanta and leads KBW’s new Financial Services Group, which serves clients in the specialty finance, mortgage finance, securities, alternative asset management, and financial technology sectors. Mr. Meyers brings more than 17 years of relevant experience serving both strategic and private equity investors in the financial services sector. He comes to KBW from Raymond James where he was a Managing Director in the Financial Services Investment Banking Group. Previously, he served as Head of the Financial Services and Transaction Processing Investment Banking Group at Morgan Keegan & Company. Earlier in his career, he worked in the business advisory and assurance practice at Deloitte and Touche (CPA, inactive). Mr. Meyers has an MBA from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University and a BSBA from Washington University in Saint Louis. Michael Flock:  How does someone whose working in accounting at Deloitte get into investment banking? How did you make that transition and why? Keith Meyers:  Accounting and audit is a great stepping stone to other things. Accounting is the benchmark of business, being able to understand the financials is critical to what we do in our business. Always thought of it as a place to start my career. Wanted to get into a more proactive role. In accounting, you’re always looking at what you’ve done. You’re not creating value looking forward. I wanted to move into a role to make things happen. Investment banking is very rewarding career because we have changed the position of the companies we work with. As an investment banker, this is a client-service business. We need people who are engaged and care about what our clients think. We’re a cross between consultants, financial advisors, structuring agents and psychologists. [4:37] Psychologists - that’s a new one. Why psychologists? Deals meander many different ways. Many time when we work with clients, this is the biggest transaction of their careers and transformative for the companies we work with. A lot can happen in a deal - positive or negative so a lot of what we do is keep our client’s calm. We joke that deals die 3 times before they close. There’s always times where it’s going to get troubled and you have to make sure you keep everyone’s on board. [5:18] You kind of answered my next question - what are some of the personal traits investment bankers need to be successful? It’s usually financial or business-related but the psychology and keeping everyone calm is surprising. We hire talented people from MBA programs and many will say that we do a lot less modelling and structuring than they expected. It’s more positioning of companies, understanding companies and being able to articulate it to potential investors, private equity firms, debt providers, strategics than it is about brute force financial modelling. We can teach all of that. These kids are book smart, next level is how you interact, tell stories and build rapport and be their advocate positioning against someone that’s trying to get the best deal for themselves. Tread carefully to make sure that you have a client and investor who want to continue to work with one another for 5+ years. [6:52] Really about relationship management as much as it is about numbers. 100% your skill set in investment banking changes as you progress. Starting out, you’re involved in a lot more of the day-to-day numbers and my role is really ...

Former Atlanta Mayor Sam Massell Interview on the Buckhead Business Show Sam Massell, Founding President The Buckhead Coalition

Sam Massell, a life-long resident of Atlanta, has had successful careers in real estate brokerage, elected office, the field of tourism, and association management. He spent twenty years as a Realtor, becoming Vice President of Allan-Grayson Realty Company, then one of the city’s largest commercial brokerage firms. During that time, he was elected a charter member of the Atlanta Real Estate Board’s Million Dollar Club and was honored three times with the Cates Trophy by the Georgia Association of Real Estate Boards for creating the “Outstanding Transaction of the Year.” While in real estate, Massell became extremely active in a wide range of civic work, which eventually led to the political arena. He served twenty- two years in elected offices, including eight as President of Atlanta’s Board of Aldermen (now known as the City Council) and four as this city’s Mayor. While holding that office, he was also chosen as President of the 15,000- member National League of Cities. In addition, he has served a four-year term on the Board of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, and was a Board Member of the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games. Among other achievements, his administration as Mayor is credited with establishing MARTA (Atlanta’s mass transit program), with developing the city’s first enclosed arena (the Omni Coliseum), and with providing the “Five Points” Central City Woodruff Park, all with no call on ad valorem taxes. He also pioneered minority opportunities in city government, appointing the first female to Atlanta’s City Council and the first Blacks as City Department heads. After leaving full-time public service, he entered the tourism business in Buckhead where he operated for thirteen years under the name of Your Travel Agent Sam Massell. He is a Certified Travel Counselor (CTC), and a former President of the Travel Industry Association of Georgia. Mayor Massell now manages a nonprofit civic organization as the 1988 founding President of the Buckhead Coalition. This is a prestigious association of Chief Executive Officers of major businesses in this area on the north side of Atlanta who have pooled their strengths to nurture the quality of life and guide the orderly growth of Buckhead. He has been honored by induction into the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau “Hospitality Hall of Fame”; Georgia Municipal Association “Government Hall of Fame”; Georgia State University Robinson College “Business Hall of Fame”; Georgia Trend Magazine “Most Influential Georgian’s Hall of Fame”, and International Civil Rights King Center “Walk of Fame”. His life is chronicled in a biography (“Play It Again, Sam”) by Charles McNair and Mercer University Press. Topics to Discuss: Why did you decide to do a book - - and why did you choose this author?  How did your childhood days in elementary and high school at Druid Hills shape your civil conscience?  The book tells of a successful college political campaign that sounds unbelievable . . . until we hear the “other side of the story”. Will you elaborate?  You won a lot of top awards in real estate. Tell us about one of which you were particularly proud.  What drew you into the political arena, and if you had the chance to do it all over, would you have pursued a more lucrative business career instead?  I’ve learned that one of your earliest Atlanta political reforms was elimination of something called “Ward Courtesy”, which isn’t in the book. Please explain this initiative.  What do you consider your greatest decision; what do you wish to be your legacy; what was your worst political mistake?  How in the world did you get in the tourism business, and was it satisfying?  You’re credited with nurturing what was thought of as not much more than a sleepy,

Brand expansion, licensing expert and TEDx speaker Pete Canalichio on Buckhead Business Show

Pete Canalichio Author Author of “Expand Grow Thrive” brand expansion, licensing expert and TEDx speaker.

Before starting his business career, Pete attended the U.S. Naval Academy where he earned a BS in physics. Pete went on to serve in the Navy as an award-winning aviator and instructor pilot, honing his leadership and decision-making skills as commander of a large multi-engine aircraft and 12-member crew during the height of Cold War tensions.

His “crisis-tested leadership skills” were forged not in a battle with the competition or a challenging business turnaround—although he has certainly excelled in those arenas—but in the dark skies above the Pacific Ocean as he flew a military aircraft whose engine had caught on fire.

Clear-headed and decisive under extraordinary circumstances, Pete has applied that same leadership style to every challenge and opportunity he has faced in a distinguished executive career with such firms as Coca-Cola, Newell Rubbermaid and most recently, Licensing Brands, the company he founded in 2009.

Using visualization to make your dreams a reality was the subject of a recent TEDx Talk by Pete Canalichio (MBA ’90), founder, principal owner and president of Licensing Brands, Inc.

“With each dream, I would picture what I wanted, and I would visualize myself in that place,” says Canalichio. “The visualization gave me the clarity I needed, along with the ambition and courage to risk possible failure. As the saying goes, ‘You can’t make a basket if you never take the shot.’” Pete began his licensing career at Coca-Cola in 1997 as the Event Licensing Group Manager where he executed multiple programs in support of:

The 1998 Olympic Winter Games in Nagano, Japan The France 1998 FIFA World Cup (soccer) Major NASCAR events throughout the U.S.

In his second year in the role, he led the group to over $50 million in retail sales earning $3 million in royalty revenue for the company. In 1998, Pete working with the diecast licensee, Action Performance, delivered $30 million in retail sales in commemorating the first ever race between Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. at the Coca-Cola 500 in Tokyo, Japan. This is the largest co-branding program on record for Coca-Cola. His contributions that year earned Pete the Greatest Contribution to the Licensing Department award.

Pete continued his licensing career at Coca-Cola in 2001 as the Licensing & Consumer Activation Director of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City, UT. There he directed the development and implementation of all of Coca-Cola’s licensing programs and consumer activation for the Olympic Winter Games. During the seventeen days of the Games Coca-Cola sold over $2 million of licensed product, a 100% increase over the prior Winter Games.

From 2005 to 2007, Pete served as Director of Global Licensing at Newell Rubbermaid for the Rubbermaid brand. In this role, Pete led a 9 member cross-functional team while managing 17 licensees. In just over two years, wholesale sales grew from $30 million to over $70 million and average royalty rates increased by greater than 2% more than doubling royalty revenue. For his achievements, Pete received the MVP Award for stellar contributions to the Global Licensing department in 2006.

In his final role at Newell Rubbermaid, Pete served as the General Manager of CardScan, where he delivered quick wins while rejuvenating the organizational culture.

Before transitioning to marketing and licensing arenas, Pete earned his MBA from the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School where he was a Richard H. Jenrette fellow and salutatorian of his class. Upon graduation, Pete was recruited into the global finance unit at Coca-Cola. He rose quickly to managing $32 billion in transactions yearly as Treasury Operations Manager in London and built a strong foundation of busine...

Simply Buckhead Spotlight with Chef Ami Dand of Legendary Events and Chef Shaun Doty The Federal, Chick-a-Biddy and Announcing ATL Taco Shaun Doty, Chef The Federal, Bantam + Biddy, Chick-a-Biddy and Announcing  ATL Taco! Chef Shaun Doty’s career has spanned the globe, but his passion lies in creating simply prepared contemporary fare in Atlanta. His extensive culinary experience is the driving force behind his concepts, Bantam + Biddy and Chick-a-Biddy, fast-casual chicken restaurants featuring local free-range and pastured chicken, and The Federal, an intimate bistro steakhouse in the heart of Midtown Atlanta. Doty began his culinary career at The Grape, a bistro located on lower Greenville in Dallas, TX. After a year at the famed bistro, Doty traveled to Charleston, SC, to attend Johnson and Wales University and worked at Restaurant Million while studying the culinary arts. Upon graduation, Doty moved to Atlanta to work for two years under Chef Guenter Seeger at the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead. Later, he pursued culinary stints throughout France and Belgium, including experience at the renowned Michelin-starred restaurants Comme Chez Soi, Restaurant Bruno, Restaurant Claude Dupont, Restaurant Barbizon and Restaurant Troisgros. Returning to the United States, Doty worked at Mirabelle in Beaver Creek, CO, and then Savanna’s in South Hampton. He was lured back to Atlanta by Chef Seeger who placed him as the executive chef at the highly celebrated downtown eatery Mumbo Jumbo. Doty’s next project as chef/owner was the launch of MidCity Cuisine, recognized by Atlanta Magazine as Restaurant of the Year 2003. Inspired by the casually sophisticated cafes of Paris, Venice, and Turin, MidCity Cuisine won accolades in national magazines from Gourmet to Bon Appetit for modern interpretations of classic brasserie cuisine. In November of 2005, Doty and his partnership sold MidCity Cuisine and he was recruited by the Manhattan-based Restaurant Associates to be executive chef of Table 1280 at the Woodruff Arts Center. After a successful debut, Doty began to develop a new project inspired by the simple bistro fare that he originally admired at the start of his career. In 2006, Doty opened Shaun’s, a casual neighborhood bistro that was situated in the heart of historic Inman Park. At Shaun’s, Doty spent four years creating ingredient-driven, seasonal and creative American cuisine that earned him praise from critics and diners alike until he closed the restaurant in 2010 to focus on other endeavors. In 2010, Doty founded YEAH! BURGER, an eco-friendly eatery serving customizable burger combinations in Atlanta’s West Midtown and Virginia-Highland neighborhoods. Two years later, he sold his interest in YEAH! Burger to partner with Lance Gummere to open Bantam + Biddy at Ansley Mall in 2012. The restaurant serves a mixture of local free-range and pastured chickens. In addition to top quality chicken, Doty and Gummere have placed a major focus on Bantam + Biddy’s side dishes. The family-friendly restaurant offers Southern favorites as well as sides made with seasonal and local ingredients. In 2013, Doty opened Chick-a-Biddy in Atlantic Station, a modern diner with farm-fresh chicken, creative cocktails and fresh-pressed juices and smoothies. In 2014, Doty opened two more Bantam + Biddy locations at Avalon in Alpharetta and Lenox Square Mall in Buckhead. Both Bantam + Biddy and Chick-a-Biddy offer a number of gluten-free items as well as dishes that can easily be modified for guests with other food allergies. In 2016, Doty and Gummere opened The Federal, named after the nearby Federal Reserve Bank in Midtown, drawing inspiration from their travels around the world, French cuisine and the traditional American steakhouse. Garnering inspiration from his work at previous restaurants such as Shaun’s, MidCity Cuisine and Mumbo Jumbo and culinary stints abroad, Doty considers his dishes at The Federal to be “souvenirs of his life.

Michael Bernstein, Founder MEB Finance Interviewed on Capital Club Radio Michael Bernstein, Chief Executive Officer MEB Finance Solutions LLC

Michael E. Bernstein Mr. Bernstein founded CreditMax, LLC in 2001 and built it into one of the 25 largest debt buyers in the ARM industry by 2005 when the company generated over $60mm in revenue. In 2009, during the height of the macro-economic crisis, Mr. Bernstein made a strategic decision to exit the debt purchasing business and initiate a finance subsidiary, CMAX Finance, LLC to provide capital to underbanked, small to medium sized, debt buyers. In 2010, as part of his growth initiative for the finance business, Mr. Bernstein sold part of CreditMax to outside investors to provide additional capital for infrastructure build-out and to support a larger credit facility. Between 2009 and 2016, Mr. Bernstein originated over $350mm of loans and had his highest production year in 2016, originating over $100mm in loan volume. Mr. Bernstein sold his remaining interest in CMAX in May 2017 and subsequently formed his own company, MEB Finance Solutions LLC, which entered into an exclusive strategic alliance with Flock Specialty Finance, LLC. Mr. Bernstein’s efforts will be focused on growing Flock’s origination volume. In the first 3 months of their alliance, Flock funded over $13mm, $9mm, and $8mm, their largest 3 month funding total since Flock’s inception in 2009.

Prior to founding CreditMax, Mr. Bernstein acquired several mortgage servicing companies and portfolios in the mid to late 1990’s which he then aggregated and sold to one of the largest mortgage originators and servicers in the country. Mr. Bernstein holds a Bachelor of Science degree in finance from Georgetown University.

Lee Haney Eight time Mr. Olympia, Fitness Games and Katrina Julia with FIT Life Creation on the Buckhead Business Show Lee Haney Lee Haney Enterprises

Lee Haney has more than 30 years of fitness and nutrition experience with eight consecutive World Bodybuilding Championships to his credit. Over the years, Lee has trained professional athletes and celebrities, serving as a consultant for some of the best nutritional supplement companies in the world and was appointed Chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.

BECOMING MR. OLYMPIA

In 1991, I Became The First Eight Time Consecutive World Body Building Champion To Win The Covenant MR. OLYMPIA Crown. The Road Getting There Wasn’t Easy. It Took Hard Work, Delayed Gratification, And Above All A Lot Of Prayer.

Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to be involved as a consultant with some of the best nutritional supplement companies in the world. Those associations, along with 30+ years of on-the-job experience, have given me a wealth of knowledge – knowledge that can be used in helping you reach your fitness goals. Whether the goal is to lower body fat, add muscle mass, or wanting to tone – I’ve been there, done that!

Why are nutritional supplements so important? Nutritional supplements assist in enhancing valuable nutrients that our bodies need. Nutrients that are lacking in today’s “hurry up and grow it” society. With that being said, it gives me great pleasure to introduce the Lee Haney’s Nutritional Supplement System, formulated with years of knowledge and know how.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Even at age 46, Lee Haney’s Herculean physique mirrors his equally impressive credentials. As the unprecedented winner of eight consecutive Mr. Olympia titles, besting Arnold Schwarzenegger’s seven-file record, Lee is an icon in the fitness industry. Lee was the 1st 8 time Mr. Olympia and the youngest to retire at the age of 31.

Now retired from his historic body building career, Lee’s focus has turned to educating others. Within the sports and fitness arena, Lee is revered among his peers for his comprehensive personal training techniques as well as his contributions to the integrity of exercise in general. Professional athletes and coaches look to Lee for goal-specific sports training and nutrition programs during the off-season and for injury rehabilitation.

Evander Holyfield sought out Lee to run his training programs before fighting in two heavyweight title defenses. Lee also joined forces with Philadelphia 76er’s Shawn Bradley in order to strengthen and build up the hoopster’s post-injury. Lee worked with Gary Sheffield to improve his overall performance and transform him from a shortstop into a powerful right fielder.

How does an athlete choose Lee Haney? “I read about him and it was a fantasy of mine to work out with Lee Haney” recalls Sheffield; one of Haney’s many admirers.

Lee’s popularity and respected position within his field have provided him with a lengthy list of awards and recognition including Proclamations from three cities and distinguished acknowledgments from The President’s Council on Physical Fitness, The United States Sports Academy and The International Federation of Body Building.

To Lee, Success is more about fulfillment than trophies or titles, so in 1994, he and his wife purchased a forty acre farm near their home and created the Haney Harvest House, a non-profit retreat facility for children of all races, creeds, and nationalities. “I wanted to be able to give something back. I’ve been so fortunate to have a lot of good things come my way, and it all comes from values I learned from growing up. If we don’t take time now to give some of that back to this generation then when will we?”

Join Lee as he hosts the TOTALEE FIT Radio Show

TOTALEE FIT Radio showcases individuals who were once unhealthy but have now committed to living the TOTALEE FIT Lifestyle. In addition,

Patrick Morlando with Enjoy Your Party on Franchise Business Radio Patrick Morlando, Director of Franchise Operations Enjoy Your Party

Patrick Morlando and Enjoy Your Party are Revolutionizing the Food Service Staffing Industry Enjoy Your Partys director of franchise operations explains where the brand is headed as demand for staffing services continues to climb.

No one knows the food service industry like Patrick Morlando. His entire career has been focused on rising through the ranks in the increasingly in demand segment, from his first job scooping ice cream at just 16 years old to his most recent job as the Sales Operations Manager for a leading coffee company. And now, that extensive experience is whats helping to fuel the success of the emerging franchise concept Enjoy Your Party.

As Enjoy Your Party's director of franchise operations, Morlando brings a strong appreciation for providing quality service to the table. He decided to become a part of the brands leadership team to support its ongoing expansion efforts. Realizing that customers have a choice on where they purchase their products and often make their decisions based on the service that they receive. Enjoy Your Party was the perfect opportunity for Morlando to dive right in.

To say that Enjoy Your Party has been thriving since Morlando signed on board would be an understatementwith over 450 employees and a reach that extends across five states, the brand is already experiencing growth. And with the implementation of its franchising opportunity, Enjoy Your Party is expected to continue building on its strong momentum in the months and years ahead.

To learn more about the Enjoy Your Party brand, 1851 Franchise sat down with Morlando to see whats next.

What does a typical day look like for you? What roles and responsibilities do you oversee when it comes to Enjoy Your Party and its business ownership opportunity? Each day in the Enjoy Your Party office is incredibly interesting. Since we have many different subdivisions of staffing, from private events to contracted corporate events, my typical day starts with a morning briefing with our scheduling team to discuss current and future events. However, on a daily basis I am speaking to potentially new customers, boosting our current customer business, internal administration and working hard to get the word out there that food service staffing is the most critical part of any event. No matter how good the food is or how beautiful a venue is, The staff will ultimately make or break an event.

In your opinion, what makes Enjoy Your party so unique within its segment? Its simple: recruitment & selection, training, employee uniforms and setting high expectations for our team of 463 employees. There are many staffing agencies out theretheyre not hard to find online. However, when you look at what else they do besides food service staffing, they dont compare to Enjoy Your Party. Some companies only hire models, while others staff events through an app where people can register to work events online without have any qualifications or being pre-screened. Our employees, on the other hand, are only placed on assignment after theyve had a complete and comprehensive background check thats e-verified. Every Enjoy Your Party employee also has to attend our interactive training program, pass a competency test and complete all necessary paperwork to be entered into our payroll system. When a catering partner trusts us to place fully trained and qualified staff on an event that carries the weight of their brand name, theyre sharing the responsibility of their brand and vision with us. Matching an event personality with staff personality ensures that success. Enjoy Your Party is unique because we pay attention to those details, ultimately creating a cohesive presence at any event. We dont place individuals on events for our bottom linewe place them for our partners bottom line.

Shawn Mahoney, Co-Founder Fit2Win Wellness

Shawn Mahoney is the owner of an established software development company, a dramatic weight loss mentor, an author, a Vistage member, an avid cyclist, and an active triathlete.

Shawn is a CEO and owner of an operational software company called rockhopper tech. Shawn has successfully grown his business for over 25 years creating workflow software to run the backend operations of cutting edge companies.

Shawn had been suffering from obesity for most of his adult life. In 2008, he heard Dean Rosson speak to his Executive Vistage group about health and nutrition. During the workshop, Shawn learned about the powerful transformation of whole food nutrition, and how to establish a clear strategy for healthy weight loss. Tipping the scale at over 325 pounds, Shawn was ready to make the changes necessary to become healthy and fit.

Eighteen months later and 140 pounds lighter, the new slimmer and fitter Shawn was making an impact on many people. From the beginning of his weight loss journey, Shawn was constantly being asked how he was 'able to accomplish such dramatic success?’. He invested many hours telling people his story and sharing with them the strategic points he implemented. His wife, Paula, and his sister, Melissa, challenged him to write a book about his weight loss story. In 2010, he completed his first book titled, “How I Lost Myself.” Shawn wrote about his struggles with obesity, his bad health issues, and weight loss.

We knew there was a need in our community for a firm comprised of genuinely good listeners, who, with integrity and authenticity, could turn goals and ideas into quality services that consistently surpass expectations. Since our humble beginnings, our client base has grown considerably, and our office has relocated several times to accommodate our expanding business and talented team.

We have been recognized with awards locally, regionally and nationally. Most recently, KQ received the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) VOX honors in three of the four categories in which we were nominated, including a top honor for our work with Memphis City Beautiful’s Faith in Action event and Gold honors for our work with the City of Memphis’ Office of Youth Services (annual report) and the Shelby County Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Task Force (media relations). The 2015 wins follow PRSA VOX wins in 2014 and 2010. In 2011, KQ received national recognition with a PRNews Platinum Award for promotions of the Chick-fil-A 5K. In 2015, KQ accepted the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) award in two categories and three American Graphic Design awards from Graphic Design USA. We have established ourselves as a premier firm, serving individuals and organizations in the business, government, education, nonprofit, health care and faith-based sectors. Our continued growth serves as a daily reminder of God’s presence in our company. We are honored to serve our community by providing our best to each and every client.

Value-driven Population Health: A management and measurement system that tackles this challenge with an evolving integration of proven methods for value and population health that has reached critical mass and is ready for broader use. ​ A consortium of national experts and partner organizations devoted to the science and management of VDPH and supporting its use to improve outcomes and reduce costs in community and stakeholder settings. At 17.8% (the latest estimate), healthcare’s share of U.S. GDP is 1.5 times that of second-ranked France; by 2025, the Office of the Actuary for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) has projected that this share will be 20.1% On our current path, the Congressional Office projects that by 2040 the public debt will exceed 100% of U.S. GDP, with healthcare by far and away the biggest contributor Yet, the Commonwealth Fund and others report that U.S. health outcomes continue to be mediocre at best (e.g., 27th among OECD countries nations in life expectancy at birth) ​ Our underachieving and unsustainable healthcare system is increasingly jeopardizing not only patient/consumers but each of the stakeholder groups enacting roles that one way or another serve them. A system of objectives, measures and tools that answers and acts on these questions This system is differentiated by group and based on the role requirements of each Its management aspires to wise investments prioritized by outcomes-to-costs evidence The same outcomes-to-costs analytic format applies across groups and promotes the magic of the marketplace; i.e., incentives to model success both within and across groups. Topics to Discuss: The Problem Our healthcare costs are high and getting higher even as our aggregate health outcomes remain mediocre - a dilemma that has U.S. healthcare on an underachieving and unsustainable path.

Karen Rands Kugarand Capital Holdings, LLC

Karen Rands is a Venture Catalyst, a Compassionate Capitalist, Economist, Investor, and Entrepreneur. She is the Leader and Advocate for the Compassionate Capitalist Movement. She believes entrepreneurism is the greatest source for wealth creation. You don't have to be a successful entrepreneur to create generational wealth if you can learn how to invest in those companies that have the potential to be the next big thing, according to Karen. With the recent deregulations, investors of all types have the opportunity to own a piece of an up & coming successful company before they go public or get acquired by a bigger company. Karen has been described by some as a dominant force in the entrepreneur and investor markets with her blog, published articles, frequent speaking engagements, and her Compassionate Capitalist radio show. She has been a frequent speaker and mentor within numerous Small Business and Economic Development initiatives and was the recipient of the Advocate of the Year award in 2016 at the Flight to Freedom Summit in San Ramon, California, for her work to promote Compassionate Capitalism. Karen left the corporate world over a decade ago, having been involved with many product launches, to pursue her passion for seeing innovation funded and to help the entrepreneur and investor community she served create thriving businesses. Karen immersed herself in the world of angel investing, first as the protégé to the founder of the Network of Business Angels

Topics to Discuss: Compassionate Capitalism - creating a movement
