Got to meet Dr. Gates at the John Jay Homestead and listen to his talk on Reconstruction. It was one of the best discussions on post Civil War reconstruction I’ve heard. He showed part of the following documentary, which gives much food for thought. He has an ability to engage his audience and communicate complex, fact-based information which is unique. Great presentation.
Birchtree Global has been working in China for 20 years, ever since we were founded. Our leadership team has worked in China for the last
30 years, so we are keenly interested in reading well-researched information. Here is a terrific article from the Brookings Institution to which
we’d like to direct your attention. As you plan for 2020, this might be exceptionally valuable.
Congratulations to my colleagues Ken Pinnock and Dr. Laura Persky! Our paper on the effects of high performance bullying behavior on organizational performance is now in the top ten journal downloads!!
I was thrilled to meet Dr. Ken Lacovara, paleontologist at Rowan University, Fellow of the Explorers Club, and discoverer of the Titanosaurian DinosaurDreadnoughtus. In March 2019 Ken received the Explorers Club’s highest honor, the Explorers Club Medal, awarded for “extraordinary contributions directly in the field of exploration, scientific research, or to the welfare of humanity. His colleagues hosted a surprise party for him (after spending the day digging in the Fossil Park…) to celebrate his medal at the Edelman Fossil Park in New Jersey.
If you don’t know about this park, I encourage you to go visit. You can dig up fossils and keep them. A great place to show young people the wonders of paleontology.
Richard Wiese, president of the Explorers Club and Ken Lacovara at the Edelman Fossil Park in Mantua, New Jersey.
It seems like everyone wants to invite you to join a webinar, watch a program, or read a blog. The problem is you don’t always know how well the information being produced is researched. Or, the information presented may be about a country of interest, but not a subject. A big concern right now is upcoming changes to legal, financial, HR, or tax regulations that will take effect January 1, 2020. Then, there is BREXIT, for which what will happen is anybody’s guess….
What can you do if you are looking for well-researched information upon which you can build your business? Here is one idea….

Dr. Walsh’s latest research on Cuba is featured in the 2019 new book, “The Cuba-U.S. Bilateral Relationship: New Pathways and Policy Choices”.

Guess what the buzz was about at the ACG Value Creation Conference in NYC on June 6? How HR adds value to Private Equity businesses and transactions. If you’d like to know more, give us a call and we’ll share the highlights.
I enjoyed getting Brad, Hector, and Jae’s perspective on the subject.
