Please join us on Friday, July 29 as Ambassador Susan Schwab shares her insights on what the United Kingdom needs to consider in preparing for and conducting trade negotiations.

With a focus on international trade and development, Ambassador Schwab’s career has spanned the public, private and non-profit sectors. In addition to being a strategic advisor in Mayer Brown’s Government & Global Trade practice, she is a professor of public policy at the University of Maryland. Ambassador Schwab served as US Trade Representative (2006–2009) and as Deputy USTR (2005–2006). During her tenure as USTR, she successfully opened markets for US products and services in every region of the world and across a variety of business sectors and industries. Previously in government, she served as assistant secretary of commerce and director-general of the US & Foreign Commercial Service, legislative director for Senator John C.
