PBBG May Breakfast Meeting - Don Hannah
Please join us on Friday May 13, from 7:45 until 9:15 a.m. at the Chesterfield Palm Beach (363 Cocoanut Row, Palm Beach, FL 33480)
Our featured speaker will be Donald C. Hannah (father of movie star Daryl Hannah and four other siblings). Don has a very interesting background with many years of international business experience, often in exotic places. His most notable successes involve establishing a highly successful marine shipping organization, an auction marketing company to sell distressed real estate properties, securing the release of an American prisoner held by Fidel Castro, an entrepreneurial joint initiative between Indian Americans and the Chinese called Citipac, Board of Advisors for the Institute of Shipboard Education's "Semester at Sea" program, and founding the University of Virginia Polo Club. Ask him to tell you about how Biafran took over his ships in Nigeria to create a Biafra Navy during the Nigerian Civil War in the late 1960s. Don is now heavy engaged in Cuba, with the first initial cruise ship license, Don is negotiating a number of new Cuban business opportunities, some of which could include Palm Beach participants. His one-page bio can be found by clicking here.
The event was well attended and was both very entertaining and very informative. Donald told very interesting stories about initiating business in Cuba, in the past, and in the future. Several attendees and PBBG Members have already had private meetings to discuss ground-level opportunities.
The PBBG thanks Donald Hannah for his time, information, and opportunities!
