Kelly Craft
Ambassador, Representative of the United States of America to the United Nations (former)

Executive Leadership Keynote: Kelly Craft


We face a variety of global challenges amid shifting societal and economic trends. It’s difficult to quantify the economic and social impact the pandemic has had on the United States and even more difficult to estimate how it will shape future. Even as the global economy rebounds, the international financial, political, and social impacts will continue for years to come. What does this mean for the healthcare industry?

Deeply reliant on international markets, particularly in Asia, healthcare is uniquely vulnerable to uncertainties and disruptions. Understanding the complexities of international relationship is key to ensuring continuity in your industry. Drawing from her first-hand expertise as a former Ambassador to the United Nations and Canada, Kelly Craft will untangle the long-term international economic implications of the COVID-19 pandemic and share insights into its impact on the healthcare industry.
