Manage episode 357057982 series 2845890
Jimmy Wang came to Australia from China in 2002 to study engineering. He's ended up owning 49 Japanese restaurants under the Okami brand and has just launched Oak Leaf Education Institute in Melbourne to train people in hospitality. The initial motivation was to solve Okami's staffing shortage but he's also keen to inspire international students to work hard and find their own place in the Australia he sees as a land of opportunity.
