Hi, I'm Tae Young Woo and I make new things happen.
As founder of Seoul, Korea-based event management agency CNH Studio, I spearhead efforts in organizing lectures, conferences and events that bring together the nation's most prominent leaders from industries including tech, media, publishing, nonprofit, cosmetics, e-commerce, and more. Our annual CNH Forum kicked off in July 2017 at COEX featuring 14 speakers, and we are expanding our speaker lineup globally in 2018, starting with the launch of the Global Speaker Series featuring international bestseller authors.
I also founded CNH Books, the publishing arm of CNH Studio, which focuses on introducing to Korea business leaders who are well-known in the English-speaking world and are looking to enter the Asia market. CNH Studio and CNH Books work together to provide the Korean audience with not only great content through books but also the opportunity to meet the authors in person by directly arranging a lecture/book tour.
Speakers that I have invited at my events include:
+ Jim Yong Kim - President, World Bank
+ Y.S. Chi - Chairman, Elsevier / Chairman, International Publishers Association
+ Phil Schiller - Senior VP of Worldwide Marketing, Apple
+ Bill Taylor - Co-Founder, Fast Company
+ Joon Oh - Ambassador to the United Nations, Republic of Korea
+ Dennis Hong - Professor & Founding Director, Robotics & Mechanisms Laboratory (RoMeLa), UCLA
+ Juju Chang - News anchor, ABC
+ Theresa Rah - Communications Director, 2018 PyeongChang Olympics Bid Committee
+ Carol Lim - Founder, Opening Ceremony / Creative Director, Kenzo
+ Mickey Kim - APAC Product Planning & Partnerships Director, Google
+ Changwon Pyo - National Assemblymember, Republic of Korea
Born in Seoul, Korea, I moved to Irvine, California at age 7 and lived there for 8 years before attending and graduating from The Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut. I will be receiving a B.A. from New York University in May 2018.
