About Julia:

Julia Sweig is a practitioner, entrepreneur and scholar—three unique skills honed in 30 years of experience in policy think tanks, business and academia. All three came in particularly handy over the past decade: as one of the foremost U.S. authorities on Cuba, Julia leveraged her relationships to position herself at the crossroads of foreign policy and business during the historic opening of relations, formerly unimaginable in our generation. Julia’s ability to synthesize and communicate complex foreign policy issues for laypeople, achieving accessibility without sacrificing substance, has made her a popular primetime guest on CBS, CBSN, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CNN, PBS, BBC, NPR, and even Comedy Central’s Colbert Report. >>
