This year, Enliven is excited to join our friends at the Asian American Chamber of Commerce (AACC) for their annual Connections Dinner on May 24. As a Sapphire sponsor and technology partner to the AACC, we are committed to furthering their mission of supporting Asian professionals, Asian business owners and those doing business in Asia.

In late 2016, I had the opportunity to lead a trade mission between St. Louis and Ho Chi Minh City, where we signed an MoU between the CEO Club of Vietnam and AACC to further economic opportunities between our cities. I’m happy to hear several members of the CEO Club Vietnam will be traveling to St. Louis joining us at the Connections Dinner. This is a wonderful demonstration of the commitment they have to our partnership.

As the Vice President of the AACC, I am encouraged to see our organization grows over the years. The Connections Dinner is our biggest annual event and this year we outgrew our venue and anticipate to host over 400 people at the River City Casino. Though the AACC is only a few years old, the organization has tremendous momentum behind it and I’m proud to be a part of growing the organization and helping them reaching their mission.

The Connections Dinner is a 14-course Pan-Asian cuisine dinner event where we will be honoring those who made significant contributions to the community, and demonstrated outstanding professional achievement as Asian business leaders.

For more information about the event, please see the package here or register on the AACC website. I look forward to seeing many of you there.

Cuong is a self-described cultural nerd with an appetite for the unfamiliar. Among his favorite experiences is arriving at a remote airport and finding himself surrounded by things he’s never before seen, people he can’t communicate with, and new cuisine to indulge in. This innate curiosity and energy for discovering new frontiers, paired with his entrepreneurial spirit, led Cuong to begin Enliven with co-founder Ian Robinson.   Cuong’s career has afforded him opportunities to work with Fortune 500 brands, play critical roles in product launches (including redesigning the user experience of the DNN Software 6.0 framework, the world’s leading open source .NET content management system), and publish an ebook with WROX on web standards. An accomplished speaker, Cuong has presented at conferences throughout the US and abroad.   As Enliven’s CEO, Cuong directs business strategy and serves as team lead on user experience and design work. No matter the task at hand, Cuong is constantly seeking ways to carry out his passion for designing technology that improves the way we live, work, and play.
