"This event builds upon the great momentum from CAA Amplify, focusing on the next generation of remarkable leaders across various industries, helping to accelerate their professional and personal growth and build meaningful relationships that we hope will lead to new business opportunities."
This year's invite-only attendees will hear from speakers and panelists including Enso co-founder Sebastian Buck, Mayfield Fund partner Tim Chang, chef Roy Choi, The Good Wife and Being Mary Jane writer Erica Shelton Kodish, Everything, Everything director Stella Meghie, former astronaut and NFL player Leland Melvin, Warner Chappell Music CEO and chairman Jon Platt and i am OTHER chief creative officer Mimi Valdes.
