TESTIMONIALS FROM
SOME DEEP DIVES: CHINA 2021 PARTICIPANTS


Arlette Laurent
Former Charge d’affaires of the EU Delegation to the UN

“The extensive coverage from 5000 years to today, from the Arts to the Art of War was a tour de force with an impressive array of scholars and practicioners- their variety as well as that of the attendees made this experience a particularly rewarding one.
No matter how objective one thinks one is, in fact some of my a priori assumptions (diplomacy/military/academia) were questionned. The other personal note is that, as much as I learned about China, I also acquired a better perception of the US and of Americans’ attitude to China- whether via the speakers or the other attendees.”


Kristen Kaufmann
Deputy Commissioner of International Affairs at the New York City Mayor’s Office for International Affairs

“The Network 20/20 Deep Dives program on China was an extremely useful, informative, and enriching experience. It covered everything from Chinese culture to ancient history, to modern-day foreign policy, weaving everything together to give the participants a thorough and thoughtful insight into what drives Chinese foreign policy.  The program was extremely politically balanced in terms of the presenters, including those with widely differing viewpoints. The small, intimate sessions were often held in private apartments, and it was wonderful to get to know and create bonds with the others.  I highly recommend this program for anyone who has an interest in learning more about this space.”


Tom Stratiotis
Senior Associate at Stepstone Global

“The most important benefit that I gained by participating in Network 20/20’s Deep Dives China program, is that I got to know a group of professionals passionate about understanding China and the CCP in a more than superficial manner. The contacts I made whether with the experts or other participants truly expanded my intellectual horizons. ”


Frank Beane
Vice President for A.R. Walker & Company, Inc.

“Network 20/20’s China Deep Dive was a highly curated and greatly insightful program that featured a variety of lectures on important topical subjects.  Each expert had a distinct perspective and presided over thought-provoking discussions that were historical, political, and cultural.  The participants enhanced the overall experience by asking interesting questions that prompted nuanced and extremely informative conversations.  I am grateful to have had the opportunity to attend such a project and hope to do so again in the future.”
