IIB’s Executive Director, LaVonn Schlegel, was invited to speak at the recent C3 US-Arab Business & Healthcare Summit in New York City. Schlegel joined event keynote speaker, General David H. Petraeus (ret.), and 60 additional global business leaders who addressed an international delegation of over 500 attendees on promoting and improving U.S. and Arab initiatives in order to strengthen security and business relations between the regions.
Mr. Ransel N. Potter, Founder & Managing Partner, C3 Summit International, remarked during the opening session, “This C3 US-Arab Business & Healthcare Summit is about exploring ideas, suggestions, and realistic recommendations as possible solutions to today’s bilateral security, technology, commercial development, and healthcare challenges. Based on the insights of the Summit’s global leaders and thinkers, participants can begin to immediately implement what they will hear and learn to help bring these innovations, pilot projects, cases studies, public-private partnerships, and other practical solutions to fruition in the global commercial and healthcare sectors.”
The 2016 C3 US-Arab Business Summit was an exclusive event dedicated to forging new business relationships, fostering existing partnerships and exchanging best practices by building a cohesive global community through bilateral cooperation. Reinforcing the theme of the 2015 C3 US-Arab Business Summit entitled “Cyber Security, Smart Cities and Bilateral Prosperity,” the 2016 C3 Summit focused on solving the complex, multi-faceted, interlocking issues of security, technology, science and trade through collaboration, innovation, and partnership.
