Statement of Purpose

It is a privilege to uk replica watches be nominated for President-Elect of the International Council for Small Business. I have been fortunate in my career to have had many leadership opportunities in the field of small businesses and entrepreneurship, which I believe have provided broad experience and sound preparation for this important role in the ICSB. Most recently, I have led the formation and inaugural conference of the Asia Council for Small Business (ACSB) and the growth of ICSB Korea to 150 members. This inaugural ACSB conference has generated considerable interest in ICSB in uk replica watches the Asia-Pacific including Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and many more.

It is undoubtedly true to state that the position of President of ICSB is one of the great honors that a person could achieve in their career. After very carefully considering challenges and needs of ICSB and at the same time my own capabilities, I am confident that I can add an important value to the institutional evolution of ICSB during the three year commitment to the work of the Presidency. Therefore I confirm that I wish to take the nomination for the position of President-Elect as presented by Prof. Yong Jin Kim.

If I’m elected, I’ll focus my Presidency on rolex replica watches affiliate development and growth in the Asia-Pacific region and as well as successful implementation of the new regional councils based on the experience of ACSB. I have a very useful skill to interact with people and institutions in order to create interest and generate sponsorship (e.g. Samsung, Kia, etc). I have no conflicts of interest to report. I am not seeking the position of President for its status, I am seeking the presidency to bring benefits and add value to ICSB as individual and especially as representative of the view of Asia-Pacific.
