Moderated by Jennifer Taylor Hodges, BABA President and John Dickerman, BABA Vice President, our first Book Series event featured Patrick Davies, author of “The Great American Delusion”.
Davies is a writer, company adviser and mentor. He was a British diplomat for 25 years wrapping up his career as the UK’s Deputy Ambassador to the United States from 2013-18 where he worked alongside the Trump and Obama White Houses for five years.
Davies’ first taste of the US was on a student exchange program to a high school in California in 1987. He has more than 30 years’ experience of America, its people and politics and has travelled to more than 40 US cities.
Davies discussed a post-Covid world in the context of US/UK relations, citing what he sees as the main challenges, as well as opportunities and threats, facing the US and the UK as both countries emerge from the pandemic.
