It was a pleasure for Prof. Michael Czinkota to accept the Outstanding Speaker Award from the American Society for Competitiveness. While this award covered the past, Prof. Czinkota’s acceptance speech focused on the future. He addressed the growing role of curative international marketing, where, without a statute of limitation, the length of time for restitution shrinks in importance while making up for injustice is the crucial dimension of thought, behavior, and planning for discernment.
We were visited by Mr. Barry Rhoads, Chairman of Cassidy and Associates. He presented his insights on the role of private sector influence on government, establishing and disrupting relationships and the achievement of thought for legislation.
Mr. Rhoads arrived in Washington as an officer in the U.S. Army, became a tax prosecutor for the U.S. Department of Justice. He is now the head of one of the largest lobbying firms in Washington D.C where he represents interests both foreign and domestic, such as Airbus Industries.
