William J. Billeaud, Managing Partner of Lombard Global, Inc. http://www.lombardglobal.com, a global investment banking and management consultancy, recently presented as a guest lecturer to the HULT International Business School’s San Francisco, CA campus on August 8. The program that Mr. Billeaud addressed was entitled Corporate Diplomacy and Managing Geopolitical Risks, led by Adjunct Professor and University of Texas at Dallas Alum, Cari Guittard. Mr. Billeaud’s presentation was entitled Beyond the Glamour, The Reality of an International Business Career: Dealing with Unforeseen Issues, Emergencies and Drama Overseas.

The presentation consisted of approximately 45 minutes of case studies from Mr. Billeaud’s experiences in the Middle East, Latin America, China, the EU and USA, along with 45 minutes of lively give and take. “This was the most diverse group of international business students and professionals I’ve spoken to. Approximately 30 countries were represented in that classroom. In addition, they were the most inquisitive, yet also the most polite and well-mannered group I’ve spoken to”, said Mr. Billeaud. According to HULT’s Cari Guittard, “It is essential for a global business career to bring real world insights, differing perspectives and best practices into the classroom, and Bill’s presentation did just that, sharing not only his personal and professional journey but his takeaways from a career that has spanned the globe.”

Guittard, a Texas native, has led a global career, working in every region, specializing in Corporate Diplomacy & Geopolitical Risk, Cyber Security, International Negotiations, Women’s Leadership and most recently Gender Intelligence™. “We were honored to have Bill join us on Hult’s San Francisco campus as guest lectures like this expand our students’ worldview as well as their social capital by connecting them directly to leaders in a variety of disciplines.”
