SAVE THE DATE: (Nov. 17th, 2012) Attorney Uduak Oduok to Speak at WHARTON’S AFRICA BUSINESS FORUM

Folks, I will be at the Wharton School of Business, at  the  University of Pennsylvania to participate in the school’s 20th Annual Africa Business Forum.

Specifically, I will be a panelist on the following panel:

“African Media and Entertainment: Creating Value From a Global Market”

Please save the date and plan to attend. I’d love to meet as many of you as I possibly can.

Special thanks to one of my female AML readers who contacted me to inform me she had recommended me as a panelist. I appreciate you. Thanks again.

Everyone else, especially my East Coast readers, I look forward to seeing you there. Please don’t be shy. Do come up and say “hello” when you see me.
