The Tomorrow Inaugural Forum brought visionaries to share innovation and inspiration for Future Beverly Hills Tomorrow Executives. Speakers were Nancy Aossey (President & CEO, International Medical Corps); Michael Burns (Vice Chairman, Lionsgate); Lynda Resnick (Vice Chairman, Roll Global); Dr. Eduardo Marbán (Director, Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute); Henrik Fisker (Founder, Fisker Automotive) as the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce launched its signature event. “We designed the Tomorrow event to celebrate the great ideas and bright minds that help make Beverly Hills, and Southern California in general, such an innovative region that draws people from all over the world to reside as well as do business here,” said Alexander Stettinski, Exec Director of the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce. “Without the foresight of important cultural and business leaders who founded the city 100 years ago, and contributions of many others throughout the 20th Century, Beverly Hills could not have evolved into the cultural icon and beacon that attracts the world’s attention, welcoming thousands here each year. That’s why we want to look to local visionaries who are helping to shape the way the world thinks and offer specific insights into the way business evolve as we progress further into the 21st century.” Participants included Emcee Frank Mottek, veteran broadcaster/host of the top-rated Business Hour and anchor of Money News, KNX 1070 News Radio and Nancy Aossey (President/ CEO, International Medical Corps) who transformed International Medical Corps into one of the largest relief and development humanitarian organizations delivering more than $1.4 billion of assistance, health services and training to tens of millions of people in 70 countries since 1984. Audience included business people of diverse backgrounds from small business owners to CEOs and entrepreneurs. l
