Special Event Invitation
SDSI Community Leadership Dinner Honoring Jim Wilkinson

Jim has an absolutely fascinating business career, having been among many other things, an advisor to the President of the U.S. Secretaries of State and Treasury, and Head of Corporate Affairs for Alibaba Group. Jim will be discussing The Alibaba Group and its leadership in the Global Marketplace. Surely all of us are Amazon users and are amazed at the transformation that it has caused in US retailing. In China, Alibaba serves as Amazon, Walmart, PayPal and FedEx (and many others) combined! Please join us for this very interesting topic; perhaps we will glean some insight into the evolution of the on-line marketplace in the USA!

     With all respect, here is a parsed highlight reel of an amazing career:
