I’m pleased to welcome Eden Chen to our Council of Reference. We met a few years ago and his contribution to Asian Access has been multi-faceted. A few years in, after a few consulting opportunities, he taught for us in Taiwan as we were launching our A2.business community.
Since then, we’ve interacted several times most recently with him advising us on our Digital Platform. How timely too. Eden is a key player in the tech industry, having founded a few companies that are making a significant dent in that space.
I’m glad to have him join our team, especially as our marketplace cohorts expand and as our Digital Platform gains momentum. His voice will be instrumental in helping Asian Access grow.
Here is what Eden says about Asian Access...
"Asian Access provides a needed service for businessmen and women in various countries to build community through high quality education but most importantly by providing the context for accountability, encouragement, and growth."
Co-Founder & CEO, Pragma
Join me in welcoming Eden to the Asian Access family!
Rev. Joseph W. Handley, Jr., Ph.D.
