From Bad to Worse to Best in Class… Lunch Workshop

November 20 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Hao Lam, CEO and Chairman of Best in Class Education Center, has devoted his entire career to advocate for supplemental education. As a child living under the Communist regime in Vietnam, Hao was faced with adversity and hardships that affected his ability to attain a conventional education. As a teenager, Hao escaped political persecution and made his way to Canada where he realized his dream of graduating from high school at the age of 23. In 1995, Hao’s true passion for teaching and entrepreneurship propelled him to open his first tutoring school in Seattle. He currently owns and operates 10 supplemental education centers throughout the Seattle metropolitan area. In 2011, he franchised the business and has since facilitated the opening of another 60+ franchised centers across the nation. 
In 2018, Hao had the extreme pleasure of adding the title of “Author” to his accomplishments with the publication of his unbelievable and inspiring memoir, From Bad to Worse to Best in Class: A Refugee’s Success Story. It is an inspiring tale of audacity and perseverance, hardship, romance and personal growth. Hao’s motivational book tours for business groups, colleges, schools, and community organizations are currently underway across America.  
Hao’s experience includes: 
CEO and Chairman of a national franchise 
Author & Motivational speaker
Co-owner of a commercial real estate acquisition and management firm 
Co-founder of a mortgage company 
Investor of multiple restaurants 
Instructor at Renton Technical College
