Janica Southwick, from Utah, has spent 15 plus years as a television talent, motivational speaker and image consultant for celebrities and executives. She is a published author on image and non-verbal communication and comparative cultures. Janica is a writer for many publications on English education in Japan and is an official top blogger for Ameblo, Japan’s largest blogging network. She is the owner of Tokyo’s fastest growing luxury nail salon JoliNails, with locations in Shirokane, Roppongi Hills and two newly opened locations in Grand Hyatt Tokyo and Ark Hills Spa. She is a proud new member of the ACCJ community and is really looking forward to a well-deserved night out, without her three children, at the event of the century, tonight’s 2016 ACCJ Charity Ball: A Black and White Gala.
Andrew Silberman did not receive an invitation
to Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball. That’s understandable though, since he had just moved with his family from Chicago to California, and he was just 4 1/2 years old. Plus, his little brother Jim was about to be born. At least that’s the story Andrew’s telling those who ask why he wasn’t on that high society list of invitees in November of 1966.
Andrew has been an active member of the ACCJ since 1995, chairing, co-chairing and vice-chairing committees and serving on the Board of Governors. He’s also on the board of directors for ISS, a high school for kids with special needs. By day he’s President & Chief Enthusiast for Advanced Management Training Group, K.K., “Developing Global Thinkers” since 1992. By night he’s the lead vocalist and frontman
for Moonshots, a feel-good roots rock band. And tonight, he wants you to feel and act as member of an exclusive club, those special few who belong to the “Who’s Who of International Business in Japan,” who truly contribute to our business community and who generously support ACCJ’s selected charities, because, after all, that’s who you are... and that’s what we do!
