The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) held its 12th annual meeting in New York, New York on Monday, September 19, 2016 through Wednesday, September 21, 2016. The Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting brings together the world’s most distinguished leaders from government, business, and civil society to examine today's most pressing global challenges and transform that awareness into tangible action. The 2016 CGI focused on a single theme: “Partnering for Global Prosperity.”

"I enjoy working with the Strauss Media team a great deal. We do monthly SMT/RMT’s with them as well as periodic RMT’s and I find the team to be enthusiastic and upbeat (both of which are key during a long SMT!), while also being professional, hardworking and tenacious. I work with them closely on a daily basis and I am happy to say that it is always a pleasure."
