Ambassador Mark Green, former administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and current executive director of the McCain Institute, speaks with Michelle Giuda, executive vice president of Geopolitical Strategy & Risk at Weber Shandwick, about the early lessons of the COVID-19 global pandemic, how to develop a culture of readiness and what businesses need to know about the path to recovery.
Unlike the usual bilateral response that we’re sort of trained to think about, this was something in which there were forces at play from all around us – all around the world. This is truly a global challenge, not merely a regional one or a bilateral one.
A recognized leader in foreign policy, development, and both the public and private sector, Green also previously served as the U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania from 2007 to 2009. Prior to that, he served as a four-term member of the U.S. House of Representatives representing Wisconsin’s 8th District.
