Please join us for a special session of the Connector Series, Select Greater Philadelphia’s new program to enhance connections among our investors and partners, and business leaders who have chosen to establish operations in our community. We are bringing together exclusive, intimate groups of business and civic leaders to connect not only with each other, but with business leaders who made the decision to establish and grow their operations in our 11-county region. Through an engaging conversation around why these leaders chose Greater Philadelphia, we’ll hear first-hand feedback on what works well and ways that we as a community can improve how we do business.
This special session features Spike and Bill Yoh. Bill is third generation owner of Day & Zimmermann, who will present his new book Our Way: The Life Story of Spike Yoh. An embattled son becomes a patriarch. An untested employee becomes a CEO. A husband becomes a caregiver. A student becomes a teacher, and ultimately a student. Spike Yoh’s life story paints a vivid picture of the profound and very human forces that shape leadership. From a troubled childhood that would have propelled most into a cycle of broken relationships and self-doubt, he rewrote the rules of his own life, and in the process built his father’s company into a billion-dollar enterprise. Through self-determination and a commitment to see the glass as more than half full, Spike Yoh became a loving family man, a business leader, and a philanthropist whose keen intuition and unmatched ability to connect with others have inspired individuals and organizations to achieve unprecedented levels of success.
