There is a lot of talk about trade policy, but why does it matter? Can you influence trade policy changes? How can you navigate and leverage trade policy awareness to gain competitive advantage and avoid risk?
Karyn Page is the chair of Industry Trade Advisory Committee (ITAC) #9 which serves to represent small, medium & minority businesses to the US government regarding trade policy. She brings decades of trade policy experience in the private sector and with government officials alike. She will provide an overview of current trade policy, expectations for the upcoming administration, and practical insights from an SME's perspective. You can expect to come away with a broader understanding and foundational understanding of the trade policy process and environment, strategic steps you can take to mitigate risk or take advantage of a new opportunity, and the change to get your questions answered by a subject-matter expert.
Karyn Page is recognized at the local, state, and national level for her expertise on export promotion and export ecosystem development in both private and public sectors. She consults small businesses and communities across multiple industries on trade strategy, advocacy, compliance, market entry and identifying global opportunities. As the current chair of Industry Trade Advisory Committee for small and minority businesses, she engages business leaders in formulating U.S. trade policy. Ms. Page currently serves as President and CEO of Kansas Global, a full-service trade advisory firm, helping companies and cities leverage their capabilities and global reach.

Since we normally have breakfast at these 4th Friday Breakfast meetings, we are giving attendees a gift card to a local international restaurant of your choice.
