The Global Leaders' Inaugural Meeting a Resounding Success
Date:2/13/2010

The Global Leaders held their inaugural meeting at the prestigious Yale Club in New York City on February 9th, 2010.

Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) February 13, 2010 -- The inaugural meeting of The Global Leaders, an international networking group designed to facilitate the trade of ideas, information, and inspirations across the spheres of business, government, education and philanthropy, was held at the prestigious Yale Club in New York City on February 9th. The meeting had an impressive turnout with over 120 key representatives from across the four spheres attending the event. As Co-Founder George Bickerstaff remarked, "The meeting far exceeded all expectations."

Our first speaker, Frederick Frank, was the former Vice Chairman of both Lehman Brothers and Barclay’s Capital, and is the current Vice Chairman of PJ Solomon and Company. He has provided investment banking services to companies in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and has been involved in hundreds of financings and mergers and acquisitions transactions in the global health care industry. Mr. Frank gave an insightful and stimulating talk on capital markets, with a focus on the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries and the possibilities they have going forward.

The second speaker was Ambassador Kamal, who served as a professional diplomat in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan for close to forty years. He continues to be a Senior Fellow of the United Nations Institute of Training and Research and he is the Founding President and CEO of the Ambassador’s Club at the United Nations. In addition, Ambassador Kamal is a Visiting Professor at six universities in the United States. His speech on globalization and the change engendered by emerging markets was topical and thought-provoking.

The morning after the meeting, February 10th, The Global Leaders were honored at the Opening Bell Ceremony at NASDAQ. Co-Founder George Bickerstaff made a brief speech about the inaugural meeting and rang the opening bell. The ceremony was aired on BNN, Fox, Fox Business, and CNBC.
