Entrepreneur Dale Ting returns to Dynamics of Leadership to create success from lifestyle, failures

  • PDF

"You have to get over your fear of failure."

Serial entrepreneur Dale Ting has taken risk after risk, despite a common stigma against failure within the Asian American community. With this risk, Ting has successfully built EntreAsians, a safe place for Asian American entrepreneurs to brainstorm, motivate and inspire one another. Through EntreAsians, Ting brought together others who may not be part of the “Asian holy trinity of doctor, lawyer, or engineer," but want to establish success by channeling their entrepreneurial dreams.

His passion for mentoring other budding entrepreneurs and leaders inspired Ting to bring a discussion on lifestyle entrepreneurship to the 2017 Dynamics of Leadership conference in July. Through his talk, attendees will understand how to create businesses that sustain their chosen lifestyles. overcome fear, and achieve productivity in business and practical issues like insurance and taxes.

Ting has been a successful lifestyle entrepreneur since 2011 after finding that his corporate path stifled his creativity and taking the leap of faith by establishing Wild Ting Enterprises. The company's ventures include the household care products of The Bucko, affectionately named after the his alma mater University of Wisconsin's resident mascot, Bucky the Badger.

In the community, Ting works closely with the National Association of Asian American Professionals as its former president and Cincinnati, Ohio board member. He established ACEL's first SoCal chapter at the start of 2017.

Ting holds a chemical engineering degree. He has 10 years of experience in product development and R&D for Procter and Gamble.

When Tran Thi Huyen Tran immigrated to the United States in 1975, her own business was not yet in sight. At the time, she was a young child who had just fled Vietnam with safety, but very little else. But she would quickly learned English, later earning her degree in business communication from Cal State Long Beach.

Fast forward 26 years from her first day in the U.S. and Tran would establish Axis Employment Services, a highly successful company that provides staffing solutions to job seekers and businesses. Since 2001, the company has changed lives for many in need of careers, whether temporary or full-time.

On July 8, Tran will be bringing her expertise to the ACEL's 2017 Dynamics of Leadership conference to change the lives of budding business owners, as well. Alongside a panel of other successful entrenpreneurs, she will discuss the best strategies behind "Initializing Your Startup," and how to deal with failures and the unknown.

Tran's journey into entrepreneurship has earned her company Top 25 Minority Business Awards through the Phoenix Business Journal since 2006. In addition, Axis Employment Services has been named a Top 10 Minority Owned Company by Republic Media from consecutively from 2013 to 2016.

She is the proud mother of two sons, Harrison and Bennett Appell, and the wife to her wonderful husband, Glenn.

Dynamics of Leadership speaker Elizabeth Greene proves anyone can create positive cultural change

  • PDF

As the force behind company culture, Elizabeth Greene can aptly be described as a mover and shaker in the field of law. On July 8, Greene will bring her proven expertise to ACEL’s 2017 Dynamics of Leadership Conference, where she will discuss “Building a Strong Organizational Culture.”

For the past two years, Greene has served as the assistant director of human resources at Fennemore Craig, P.C., a regional law firm for businesses. There, she focuses on building a team-based culture in a company in a field where time is often seen as money — a perception that she said makes her extra passionate about making a difference.

“Time not working on a client matter is time wasted,” Greene said of the law industry’s predominant culture. “They’re not making money. So how do you create a culture of compassion and commitment in an environment where we run on every minute as a dollar? I am actively working toward creating a greater sense of compassion for people versus the time.”

With learning development being a relatively untouched resource for law firms, Greene is paving the way for new opportunities in communication. Enhancing culture, she said, will enhance the future of law businesses.

“The culture sets the tone, in my mind, of how you’re going to operate externally and how you’re running internally,” Greene said. “To me, it’s an exciting topic because I’ve been a part of so many types of industries and I’ve seen different types of culture.”

At the conference, Greene said she hopes attendees take away one major point: everyone has a voice in a company’s culture.

“You have the power to create change,” Greene said. “You might be in an environment where you’ve got a culture of compliance… I want to provide examples and have some direct application of things that you can do whether you’re at the ground level and you feel like you don’t have a say, or you are in charge.”

With her talk, Dynamics of Leadership attendees will gain valuable knowledge on how to actively build collaboration through culture — even if it has to be from scratch.

“People do listen,” Greene said. “It’s just coming at it in the right way.”

Greene holds a bachelor’s degree in East Asian studies and a master’s degree in business administration. She has 15 years of experience in learning development professions, including international positions within Cold Stone Creamery and Make-A-Wish Foundation, and a wealth of knowledge in human resources.

Greene is currently involved in ACEL’s Mentorship Program and has been a wish-granting volunteer for the Make-A-Wish Foundation for eight years.
