Wow! That’s the only word that can adequately summarize last week as part of the Americas Competitiveness Exchange delegation.

Surveying the Michigan landscape and all it has to offer, checking out specific companies driving change, and seeing the schools that are delivering some proud alums (thankfully I’m not blue/green colorblind 😂).

The people, though, were the true highlight of my experiences (surprisingly and controversially, even over the 6:30a daily departures). Decision makers from across and some beyond the Americas where the passion for supporting our respective economies and communities was deeply apparent.

I look forward to continuing the conversation as we work to grow the healthcare and entrepreneurial ecosystems spanning the continents!
