Keynote Speaker

Tommy Choi  | Lessons from My Dry Cleaner

Tommy Choi found life-changing inspiration in an unlikely place: his dry cleaners. In this presentation, he'll share lessons on adaptation, abundance, fear, and gratitude that he observed while dropping off and picking up laundry. And he'll show you how he applied what he saw to his business that helped him build a multi-million dollar real estate company.
