Xicheng Management and Development Seminar
Employees of the Xicheng District of Beijing were invited to a seminar about Pasadena during which Mayor Bill Bogaard, Business Development Manager Eric Duyshart, a couple of Pasadena Sister Cities Committee members and I spoke (with the help of interpreters). About 400 employees attended.
Mayor Bogaard discussed our Green City Action Plan, Eric talked about tourism and business in Pasadena, and I explained how the City of Pasadena communicates with residents.
Whoever took the shot above was a little too close to the stage; I really could be seen over the flowers!
