Visit From Mr. Francisco Sandoval at Our Seminar

Mr. Francisco Sandoval, Economic Advisor to the Ministry of the Economy’s Trade and NAFTA Office at the Embassy of Mexico in Washington, DC. came to share cutting edge information about the U.S. – Mexico trade agreement announced last week. A true insider!

Visit from Mr. Donald Manzullo and Mr. Sean McMorrow at the Seminar

I am delighted about the visit of two key trade and policy experts to my seminar. Former  U.S. Congressman Donald Manzullo, chairman of the House Small Business Committee and of the Asia subcommittee, also president and Chief Executive Officer of the Korea Economic Institute (KEI). Mr. Manzullo shared insights about international policy, and also introduced the head of the  government relations office for Mazda – Mr. Sean McMorrow, who provided the inside perspective of how changes in government policy affect foreign investors.Thank you both!

Visit from the Director, Supply Chain, Professional and Business Services, Maureen R. Smith

It is an honor and a pleasure to have Mrs. Smith visit us in the Seminar on International Trade. After many decades with government, Maureen is more than a total Insider. Simultaneously she is a historian, a pivotal link, an interpreter and able to derive the benefits of understanding where other only shrug.

Your Georgetown international education and training is spot-on, enhanced by cohorts who became Presidents, senators and judges as well as key business executives and Georgetown deans. Thank you for your insider insights.

Visit from the Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, Mr. Michael Dougherty!

Today, I had the pleasure to welcome Mr. Michael Dougherty, the assistant secretary of homeland security for border, immigration and trade policy at my First-Year Seminar on “International Trade: Washington Insiders”.

Now, we all know how complex the screening of vast quantities of imports and exports can become. Thank you, Secretary Dougherty!
