Lotay Yang – BCC, BCCF & ELE
Mr. Yang is what many would consider the personification of the American Dream. He is a successful former investment banker to the rich and famous (some of whom many would consider house hold names) who decided to spend his time and money helping others.
Mr. Yang is the founder of the global organizations Black Card Circle and Black Card Circle Foundation. He will discuss his experience with Ethyrial, share the history of his organizations and talk about the upcoming BCC ELE (Executive Leadership Exchange) in Shanghai, China.
Ethyrial had the pleasure of updating the foundation’s website and equipping the foundation with the tools and technology to allow it to functions seamlessly on a global level.
Black Card Circle® connects influencers and activists for social networking, business networking, and philanthropy through exclusive events and personalized concierge services for its authenticated community of “Black Card” holders, respected professionals, upstanding community leaders, and inspiring entrepreneurs and activists.

HOLLYWOOD MEETS CHINA
A groundbreaking and historic opportunity is about to occur for members of the Hollywood community who will be granted access to China’s state run film, television and radio industry. Black Card Circle’s “Executive Leadership Exchange” in Shanghai is an intensive program in partnership with the China Executive Leadership Academy Pudong (CELAP) and is coordinating a 5-day itinerary focused on the Chinese film and entertainment industry, taking place June 25th – 29th, 2012 in Shanghai.
Relationships built at this exclusive event may open doors to many present and future opportunities. Attendees will gain valuable insight into Chinese film industry and culture, develop crucial relationships with Chinese government officials and top Chinese companies, and learn how to produce films and media with the support of the Chinese government.
Government officials and executives from China who are scheduled to attend include Ruihang Li (Deputy Secretary-General of Shanghai Government & Former President of Shanghai Television Station), Tong Tao (Director of Department of Investment Promotion, Shanghai Foreign Investment Promotion Centre), Tong Gang (President of the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television), and Zhonglun Ren (President of Shanghai Film Group). Black Card founder Lotay Yang recently announced that Hollywood legends Andre Morgan (Enter the Dragon and Game of Death, both starring Bruce Lee) and Janet Yang (Joy Luck Club, Empire of the Sun) are now associated with this historic event bridging the United States and China.
“We not only provide access to vital relationships, but provide the knowledge on how to most effectively utilize those relationships so you know how to work within the system rather than against it, and possess the knowledge on what China’s requirements are in terms of projects and production partners,” said Marketing Director for the BCC ELE program Jeffery Gund, who is an active member of the prestigious Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, as well as a graduate of USC.
This event is the result of over two years and 12 trips China by Black Card Circle founder Lotay Yang, whose paternal grandfather was Air Force General for President Chiang Kai-Shek, and maternal grandfather was Chief of Police of Taipei. With both his parents being born in China, Yang grew up with Chinese culture, and is fluent in Mandarin. Yang is a graduate of UCLA with a double degree in Political Science in American Politics and Asian American Studies.
