Meeting on Talent Mobility in Montreal, Quebec

0

I came to Montreal for the first time, to serve as a moderator at the meeting on Talent Mobility on Monday, October 18. This meeting was made possible with the generous support from the government of Quebec, in particular, Premier Jean Charest of Quebec.  I met with the Premier in Davos in January, 2010 and was very impressed with his initiative and commitment to talent mobility. (It is NOT an easy job when many countries and politicians, in particular, struggle with unemployment and job creation.) Lots of surprises to come as summary from meeting unfolds.
