She has been a vital person in bridging the gap between science and politics and her vast network and the strong respect that surrounds her person will be of great value to the Global Opportunity Network,” says Erik Rasmussen, founder and CEO of Monday Morning Global Institute and member of the Steering Committee for the network.
As a member of the Advisory Board, Katherine Richardson will advise on a range of issues but most notably on the choice of opportunities for the Global Opportunity Report.
