NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 16, 2012) -  On November 19 -- less than two weeks following the presidential elections -- American Prosperity and Jobs, a Symposium will convene in Newport Beach at the Pacific Club. West Coast Wall Street Conference in conjunction with LDJ Capital announces the first leg of its renewed focus upon leadership, financial community, market renewal and, most importantly, education.

Four expert panels will convene on the Jobs Act of 2012, Crowd Funding, Moving to the Cloud and Predictive Analytics and Excelling within the Framework of Frank Dodd Act. In addition, three companies such as Futura Royalties ( will present their opportunities before an audience of Southern California's business finance leadership and leading investors. David Drake -- managing partner of LDJ Capital and the Soho Loft -- will moderate the panels alongside Patrick A. Howell, Founder of the California Financial Times and West Coast Wall Street Conference.

Panels will include participation by such angel investors and business leaders as Daniel K. Donahue, Esq. of Greenberg Traurig, LLP; Anthony "Tony" Thompson of Thompson National Properties; Grant Bettingen of West Coast Wall Street Conference; Brian Sidman of Thompson National Properties; DJ Paul of Crowd Funding; Feyzi Fetahi of Corent Technology; Chance Barnett of Crowd Funder; Mark Perlman of Micro Angels; and Howard J. Leonhardt of the California Stock Exchange. Rev. Mark E. Whitlock, pastor of COR AME, will open the panels with a meditative prayer.

Patrick A. Howell announced, "Republican or Democrat, White House or Congress, Tea Party or Occupy Wall Street -- all of these perceived divisions are moot. The only thing that matters is moving forward for the greater good and prosperity of all. The 2012 Jobs Act is that path.

"The heart of real Wall Street beats, and we are looking to perform a veritable blood transfusion on November 19 in Southern California with the new leadership of our best and brightest. Faces like Orange County Young Executives' Brian Davis represent the new generation's capitalist determination and American ambition to emerge from the Great Recession stronger than ever NOW. 

"David Drake has been doing comprehensive panels on the Jobs Act and Crowd Funding globally for over a year, and we know what it takes."

The Honorable Charles Christopher Cox, former SEC Chair during the George W. Bush Administration, will deliver a keynote address focusing on The American Economy: Front and Center on the Global Stage, and participate on a panel for the 2012 Jobs Act.

Greenberg Traurig, LLP, Orange County Young Executives, Thompson National Properties and the Peterson Group, as well as leading banks and funds, have agreed to sign on as sponsors. Spotlight Marketing,, The California Financial Times, the Power is Now Radio and the Big Biz Show have signed on as media sponsors.

David Drake of LDJ Capital and The SoHo Loft Capital Creation Events said, "Patrick Howell has been actively advocating for the Jobs Act for over a year. It was signed on the White House's Rose Garden where some of our panelists such as Howard Leonhardt of the California Stock Exchange witnessed history."

Patrick A. Howell concludes, "We are a new generation who is poised to take our destiny by the proverbial horns and unleash the bull into American life again. Our panels are replete with men and women who have the requisite will, passion and vision to see America emerge in the New Age as the true global power for integrity, hope and prosperity -- the quintessential shining city on the hill."

Further announcements will be made in coming weeks.
