On May 23, 2008, I provided a presentation, “Private-sector Innovation Catalyzed by the American Federal Government,” for 33 visitors from Beijing, China. I spoke on behalf of the University of California, Berkeley, Goldman School of Public Policy (GSPP). The overall program title was “Innovation Management for Chinese State-Owned Enterprise Leaders.”
Most of the participants work for enterprises. One is associated with the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business. I enjoyed providing the presentation and having discussion during and after the talk. I would like to thank GSPP’s Blas Perez Henriquez, Gan Bai, and Jenny Ton for making this possible. And, I would like to thank BingBing Jiang for interpreting. The U.S. Department of Commerce provided some parts of the program and arranged for a meeting room in the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building (Oakland, California), which was being planned by the Public Building Service while I served as a commissioner in the U.S. General Services Administration.
