We’re Home!

Meeting with the British-American Business Council

Greetings! We made it back to the USA yesterday from London, so this will be the last blog for the trip. Monday we visited Edelman and the British-American Business Council. Edelman is a PR firm that puts together commercials, press releases, and other publications for companies such as Taco Bell, Shell, Linkedin, and KFC. Perhaps most impressive was the office space which was an open design with a subsidized restaurant, kitchens, and plenty of collaborative open spaces. The British-American Business Council works with the US Embassy in London and the British Parliament to ensure business policies are passed to protect the interests of American businesses.

Yesterday, we packed up and headed out at 8:00am for a long day of travel. I was certainly sad to leave London, but everyone on the trip seemed to share my excitement for returning to the States and preparing to go back to Denison. I’m including some photos of the group below as a bit of a highlight real. Thanks to everyone who read my blog posts and supported the Global Commerce program! It was truly an incredible experience.
