Join Steven Wallace, founder of The Omanhene Cocoa Bean Co. and author of Obroni and the Chocolate Factory: An Unlikely Story of Globalism and Ghana’s First Gourmet Chocolate Bar, for a discussion and chocolate tasting.

Wallace will address globalization, the entrepreneur's journey, cross-cultural issues, the cocoa value chain and the potential for wealth creation in Ghana and other African emerging economies, social enterprises, and the challenges of starting a business in Africa. He looks forward to a lively Q and A. Afterwards, Steve will be happy to sign copies of his recent book which has been called, "a rare glimpse into the mind of an unusually literate and articulate entrepreneur."

Attendees are encouraged to bring their copies of Wallace's book for signing.
