The International Leadership Award
Katty Kay

Join USCIB Chairman Harold (Terry) McGraw III and hundreds of USCIB’s members and friends at our 2012 International Leadership Award Dinner. This annual gala event brings together industry leaders, government officials and diplomats to celebrate international cooperation in support of open markets, competitiveness and innovation, sustainable development and corporate responsibility.

This year we honor BIAC, the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD, on its 50th anniversary in recognition of its work to improve the global framework in which American business competes. BIAC Chairman Charles Heeter and Secretary General Tadahiro Asami will accept the award on behalf of BIAC’s worldwide membership.

Our keynote speaker is Katty Kay, lead anchor of BBC World News America, who will discuss business and leadership at a time of profound global change. Kay has served as the BBC’s Washington correspondent, and has reported from Zimbabwe, South Africa, London and Tokyo. Based in Washington, Kay covers the full gamut of American and global affairs. She is a frequent guest commentator on NBC’s Meet the Press and co-authored the New York Times best-seller Womenomics: Write Your Own Rules for Success.
