It is my great pleasure and honor to serve as your host and welcome you to the Ambassadorial Roundtable and World Diplomatic Forum. This unique, high-paced, dynamic, nonpartisan, diplomatic international affairs forum is dedicated to developing critical, sustainable, international social and investment priorities by connecting global leaders directly to financial resources necessary for peace, progress and success. We identify and address key global issues, stimulate confidential dialogue, and foster cooperation between established and emerging powers by connecting diplomacy with businesses, investment capital, academia and government. The organization maintains contacts at the highest levels of governments, militaries, businesses, and NGOs ensuring that solutions are implemented and make a real difference in people’s lives.
The World Diplomatic Forum and Ambassadorial Roundtable support information dissemination of world events, their impact upon global and United States foreign policy and committed to generating new ideas, bringing different parties together to the negotiation table and easing of global tensions by initiating open debates. We foster global education and early exposure to international affairs through our "Diplomats for Kids " program, creating the opportunity for underprivileged students to meet with foreign diplomats and learn about travel, foreign countries and diplomacy.
VISIONThe World Diplomatic Forum and Ambassadorial Roundtable serve as an open, nonpartisan venue to the international diplomatic community, business organizations and academia, dedicated to developing critical, sustainable, international investment and social priorities, while connecting global leaders to financial resources necessary for progress, peace and success. _______________________________________________________________________
