It has already been a busy May for the Belles & Whiskey team!
We worked with the German Marshall Fund of the United States to help plan the European Marshall Memorial Fellowship visit to Los Angeles. The Marshall Memorial Fellowship is GMF’s flagship leadership development program, preparing leaders from both sides of the Atlantic for transatlantic relations. Eight European fellows came to Los Angeles to learn more about our region and opportunities for transatlantic partnerships. They met with leaders from Homeboy Industries, Downtown Women's Center, 20th Century Fox, Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator, and more. Our team worked with fellows based in Los Angeles to plan their meetings and excursions.
We were also fortunate to partner with the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce on the 91st annual World Trade Week kick-off breakfast, which featured former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair. World Trade Week was founded to educate the public on the importance and benefits of global trade. The initiative also supports college and high school scholarships. We helped plan and execute the breakfast for 900 Los Angeles leaders at the Westin Bonaventure in downtown Los Angeles.
