I met with a representative of an organization that promotes international trade and economic development. They have also been involved in promoting education on international business by working with the local colleges and universities on case competitions. These have been very valuable to the students who have participated because they provide a real-world example of the challenges of operating in a global economy.
My contact was most helpful in providing feedback to me about some of the ideas that I have for moving forward. I was also able to update him on some contacts at Trinity so that he can move his program forward even though I'm no longer there to help him.
