[U.S.] [Event] Magic Johnson and Biz Stone To Star At EO Alchemy 2011

Basketball legend and entrepreneur Magic Johnson and Twitter founder Biz Stone are set to be keynote speakers at this year’s EO Alchemy 2011, a three-day global conference for entrepreneurs to learn new strategies, share success stories and experiences and network with financers and other industrialists.

Johnson and Stone will be sharing best practices on entrepreneurship and the keys to their financial success within their respective industries at the conference, held annually and sponsored by the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), a global network of more than 8,000 business owners in 42 countries, at The Renaissance Hotel from October 20-22, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

“EO is all about building the most influential community of entrepreneurs,” said Reza Bavar, president, EO‘s Los Angeles chapter, and chairman for EO Alchemy 2011. “EO Alchemy 2011 is a place for entrepreneurs to get inspired about transforming ideas into sound business practices and the platform to turn those concepts into realities.”

Conference highlights for EO Alchemy 2011 include:

– Keynote presentations from renowned speakers that have changed the world;
– Dozens of “17-minute presentations” from a global mix of well-known and not-so-well-known entrepreneurs as they discuss their experiences ranging from startups to exit strategies;
– Workshops and breakout sessions hosted by the “17-minute” presenters to provide deeper knowledge of the topics presented the day before; and
– Industry specific forums that link entrepreneurial synergistic interests.
