CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, USA, January 9, 2023/ / -- Together with the National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP), the National Speakers Bureau has officially relinquished financial gain and offered North America’s first Asian professional-centered Speaker Expo a free professional development service for everyone.

On January 19 and 20, 2023, fifty Asian American, Asian Canadian, and Pacific Islander speakers and Allies present succinct and transformative messages that illuminate 5 issue topics and solutions for professionals at any career stage:


1. Career advancement
2. Leadership development
3. Understanding Asians and Pacific Islanders in North America
4. Diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB)
5. Mental health, wellness, and health equity

These 50 opinion influencers have been selected from a rigorous audition and rehearsal process since August 2022, including eight masters of ceremonies who represent professional fields in DEIB, biotech, advertising, wellness, and public service as well as two distinguished Asian American leaders and NAAAP board members Elizabeth Yang and Fabian DeRozario.
