  • Charm Lee “Charms” SolBridge Faculty and Students

    One of the biggest challenges many Asian societies are facing these days is the loss of culture and identity.“It’s the downside to economic development,” said Charm Lee, President and CEO of the Korean Tourism Organization. “People don’t take enough time to reflect. They don’t have enough time to refresh their minds, souls, and bodies.Lee, who has lived in Korea since 1978, “charmed” and inspired the SolBridge audience with his highly charged and enthusiastic presentation in which he showed how the growth of tourism culture provides a society with the opportunity in most cases, to discover its roots and values.“It’s the industry with the brightest future,” Lee explained. “It reaches every area, whether it’s gourmet, medical, or eco-tourism.”To be sure, the importance of tourism industry results in high contribution to economic development, not to mention an alternative industry for periods of growth without employment. Likewise, it is a high-tech industry with cutting-edge knowledge and technology, which are critical for tourism industries with the upside being that the tourism industry facilitates developing new IT, transportation, communication and other related technologies.Nowhere is this better illustrated than the development of tourism culture in Korea. He pointed out that Korea has a lot of potential to develop its tourism industry and promote its vibrant and energetic culture. Whereas in the past, Korea’s cultural strength might have been with stalwart cultural icons like hanboks and kimchi, Lee thinks it is much more.“What is Korea’s main attraction? Energy,” Lee said. “There’s enthusiastic, emotional energy everywhere in Korean culture. The energy flows through you.”This emotional energy manifests itself not only in the warmth of Korean people but it is also evident in Korean culture’s internal qualities which makes Korea interesting. One way to tap into this culture energy is through Korean tourism supporters, a voluntary network of people who wish to contribute and invigorate the development of tourism culture. According to Lee, by visiting local communities and getting to know the historical and natural resources, supporters will help develop the tourism industry in local areas.“It’s not only important to inspire Koreans to understand the potential that tourism culture has, but also to change their minds and invest in it,” Lee added. — Jeffrey Miller

  • Lieutenant General John D. Johnson

    Leadership can be defined any number of ways, but when it comes to leadership in today’s ever-changing business world, tomorrow’s business leaders need to be self-reflective according to Lieutenant General John D. Johnson, Commanding General, Eighth U.S. Army.“We need to look back at ourselves and make sure what you want to be,” Johnson said to a standing-room only audience in the fourth-floor auditorium on September 22, 2011. “Then, set up a goal and spare no effort to go after it.”As part of SolBridge’s Platinum Lecture Series, one of the school’s important infrastructure pillars, Johnson keyed in on his own experience coming to Korea and the importance of adaptation to whatever current situation a person finds one’s self in—whether it’s being the commander of an army or working in a company. To illustrate the importance of adaptation, Johnson drew upon his own experiences serving in Korea and the importance of understanding and overcoming cultural differences in order to be successful in whatever one does.Johnson also had some advice for students who might wonder how they can shape and hone their skills learned at SolBridge to have that competitive edge once they enter the workforce. In short, not everyone can be outstanding in what they do without effort in the ever-changing and competitive business world.“Being a leader is not easy,” Johnson concluded. “It’s not only assigning what you need to be done by others, but also requires us to be critical, wise, and most importantly, organized.”
