As a former diplomat, I know from personal experience how exposure to new cultures reveals new aspects of oneself, of which one had not previously been aware. In this way ACE Global Network, in addition to bringing diverse, highly accomplished leaders, thinkers and executives together to partner, exchange information, and collaborate, as well as mentor the next generation of senior professionals and rising stars from the public and private sectors around the world, ACE provides critical avenues for mutual exploration. I hope as many people as possible can take advantage of this opportunity.”
