The Public Private Partnership Forum – Will you be there?

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 - 5:30pm

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 2, 2014 /3BL Media/ - Join Congressman Jim Moran (D-Virginia), Bruce McNamer, CEO of the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, and Karl Hofmann, CEO of Population Services International, in an open dialogue around the challenges and opportunities inherent to cross-sector engagement and the requirements of being a leader in a globally connected world. TUNE IN HERE on April 7 from 2 – 5, EST for this live-streamed conversation, The Power of Global Corporate Diplomacy, at the Public Private Partnership Forum, moderated by Fortune Magazine’s Nina Easton.

Diplomacy, long believed to exist primarily for the purpose of effective government cooperation, is now a critical component of global business success. It is not enough to do well in the board room – businesses must also do well in the communities in which they operate and must be perceived as doing well in the minds of their customers. Working with and through partners in the public and social sectors to achieve complementary goals is one way in which this success is achieved.

In an increasingly interconnected world, it is critical that public, private and social sector leaders are able to communicate not only across agendas, but across borders. As governments embrace the role of everyday citizens in enhancing international relations, agreeing on a common public diplomacy agenda—of governments, corporations, and others—becomes increasingly important. Individuals—especially those representing high-profile corporations—have initiated their own style of corporate diplomacy in the markets where they operate – but is it enough? How can we ensure that the traditional skills of the diplomat are ingrained as critical traits in corporate leaders? What does a true partnership look like?

Hosted by PYXERA Global, the Public Private Partnership Forum is a one-of-a-kind event that will actively engage the public, private, and social sectors in dialogue like never before. Broadcast live from the Newseum in Washington, D.C. on April 7 from 2 to 5 pm, EST, the Forum will examine how cross-sector interests converge to achieve shared value. Sponsored by The Dow Chemical Company and an important part of the Catalyzing Growth in Emerging Markets Conference, the Forum will be live-streamed from
