Translating to “hidden retreat,” INN ANN offers a high-end, seasonal Japanese dining experience. Embodying the idea of “Discover Umami” —the fifth savory taste essential to the balance of Japanese cuisine— this exclusive dinner and premium sake pairing will be prepared by INN ANN's Michelin-starred Executive Chef, Mori Onodera.
About Executive Chef Mori Onodera
An esteemed sushi master, Chef Onodera once told Los Angeles Magazine, “Rice is 70%, fish is 30%,” highlighting the importance he places on the quality of the rice he serves. He grows his own rice in partnership with Tamaki Farms. He also meticulously sources fresh fish for his signature sushi, placing a major emphasis on sustainable seafood. Inn Ann meals are served on Chef Onodera’s own handmade pottery, as well as custom Arita-yaki porcelain to further immerse guests into Japanese culture.

Additional Speakers will be announced soon.
Increasing evidence shows that playing sports can transfer into your professional career, helping you become a better and more influential leader.
Playing sports is often considered a male thing, but the expectation that sports can help your career holds for women as well as men. In a 2014 report of women executives by Ernst and Young (EY) Women Athletes Business Network and espnW, 74% said a background in sport can help accelerate a woman’s career. In another report, they found an overwhelming correlation between athletic and business success; 94% of women in the C-suite played sports and 80% of female Fortune executives played competitive sports.
Against the backdrop of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, this year’s conference will address the character traits and attributes that are common among great athletes and business leaders. The speakers will highlight leadership qualities that are both effective on and off the field, and share skills learned in athletics that have a direct workplace crossover.
