Lecture: “How to Find the Real America”
April 7 @ 18:30 - 20:00
The U.S. is a large and diverse country. As a tourist with two weeks to spend traveling or a businessperson with a few extra hours or days to spare, where can you find the best places to visit in America —ones that will truly give you a sense of what the US is really like? One that will let you understand how this country evolved and came to the the way it is? The tourist cities are fine to visit, but many of the people you will see are other tourists. What should you do?
Come and visit a great lecture by Dr. Nancy Needham, who will share with you sources of information that you can find before planning your trip that will help you make the most out of your American dream trip — whether by geographic region or by a theme, like native American culture.
Dr. Needham is President of Global Initiatives, a nonprofit corporation that houses the Global Travel & Tourism Partnership, and is President of ICGS, Inc, a consulting firm she founded in 1978. Dr. Needham received a B.A. degree from Wellesley College, where she was awarded the college’s highest honors (Durant Scholar and Wellesley Scholar). A member of Phi Beta Kappa, she received an MBA with distinction (1972), and a Doctor of Business Administration (1977) from Harvard University.
