Join us for a conversation with Raghbir (R.K.) Sehgal, author of Close the Loop: The Life of an American Dream CEO & His Five Lessons for Success, a Los Angeles Times and San Francisco Chronicle Bestseller.

Raghbir (R.K.) Sehgal left his native India as a teenager with little money in his pocket. He worked factory jobs in the U.K. and eventually moved to the U.S. Living in the Deep South in the 1960s, Sehgal experienced discrimination and that redoubled his desire to succeed. He started as a junior engineer at Law Engineering and rose to become chairman and CEO. 


Close the Loop is his story, told through the voice of his son Kabir Sehgal. It is a profound and personal meditation on hope, persistence, diligence, and resilience. Raghbir will share his five lessons for success, which you can use to optimize your life.

Raghbir was the chairman and CEO of Law Companies, one of the largest global engineering firms in the U.S. with over 100 offices around the world. He later served as CEO of H. J. Russel & Company. Raghbir was also the chairman and commissioner of the Georgia Department of Industry, Trade, and Tourism. He has served as chairman of Smart Fuel Cell and Primacy International. Raghbir has served on many boards including Northside Hospital, The Carter Center Board of Advisors, and First Data’s International Advisory Board. He graduated from Auburn University and is currently based in Atlanta. 

A book giveaway and signing will follow the session.
