Brigadoon Radio: Episode 18: US-China Trade Policy - Where is it Going?

Recorded at the lounge inside the Robert Redford Center at Sundance Mountain Resort, Dr. Mark Stellingworth speaks with Benjamin Shobert during Brigadoon Sundance 2019.

Ben is a 2x Brigadoon Sundance participant and for 2019 joined the main stage to lead a discussion on "Blaming China Won't Fix America's Economy."

Ben leads the strategy team at Microsoft's Artificial Intelligence and Research's (AI&R) Healthcare business unit. Before joining Microsoft, he was the founder and managing director of Rubicon Strategy Group, and a consulting firm focused on market access, government affairs, and regulatory analysis work in China and across Southeast Asia.

He remains a senior associate at the National Bureau of Asian Research, a Seattle and Washington, DC, think tank. In September 2018, his first book, Blaming China: It Might Feel Good, but It Won't Fix America's Economy, was published by Potomac.

Marc Ross

Based in Washington, DC, I specialize in thought leader communications and global public policy for public affairs professionals working at the intersection of globalization, disruption, and politics.

Clients hire me to ghostwrite, engage influencer networks, manage media relations, produce events, audit their communications infrastructure, consult on hiring, provide issue briefs and news generating talking points, as well as manage end to end communications projects where I assume a role of project leader and general contractor.

I work independently but provided access to a substantial global network of collaborators with expertise in websites, graphic design, audio, video, polling, data analytics, and research.

Using the latest tactics of an American political campaign with expertise shaped by being a practitioner of global business communications, I help clients tell their story and build trusted relationships with all necessary stakeholders.

Successful communications are all about STOCK = strategy, tactics, organization, consistency, and know-how.
