Rainforest Strategies partner Dr. Alistair Brett was recently invited to meet with two groups visiting the USA under the International Visitor Leadership Program, the U.S. Department of State’s premier professional exchange program.
Alistair led detailed discussions and exchanges of experience on technology commercialization with a delegation from Russia, and a delegation from Turkmenistan.
Through short-term visits to the United States, current and emerging foreign leaders in a variety of fields experience this country firsthand and cultivate lasting relationships with their American counterparts. Professional meetings reflect the participants’ professional interests and support the foreign policy goals of the United States. Attendees of the program are nominated and selected by the staff at U.S. Embassies around the world.
