The Bigger Picture with Amy Ryan

October 22nd, 2020 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

“The Bigger Picture” is an hour-long conversation with a leader, trailbrazer, or rainmaker who has dedicated their career to making a difference on the major issues of today such as: global climate change and technology, US domestic and foreign policy, health and wellness, finance, and economics.
Hagar Chemali, will be this session’s special quest.  Chemali is a trail blazing ask-no-questions badass and former Director of Communications and Spokesperson for the US Mission to the UN.  She is a national security savant having served as Spokesperson for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence for the US Department of Treasury. Currently, Hagar is Founder and CEO of Greenwich Media Strategies, providing policy expertise and is regularly featured on MSNBC, CNN, Bloomberg, among others. All of this in addition to being a momma of three beautiful children. So, she’s kind of a “Big Deal”. Hagar currently runs her empire from CT and we get to ask her anything we want! She loves to give details on the following:
  • Tips for staying on your A-game in a high-stress, soul-draining work environment and maintaining a balanced family life
  • Self-preservation tricks for those in professions that include disturbing images and stories such as: climactic data and forecasts, refugee migration habits and routes while deciding what Pre-K your children will attend?
  • What type of role do feel women and girls play in this current time in our Nations Democracy?
  • And a few more goodies!
Hagar’s company profile is below:

Hosted by Amy Ryan, Sr. Vice President of Environmental, Social, Governance at The Schwartz Heslin Group and a Member of the Palette Community.
