Tom Sabroe ’86, ’88, VP Finance, Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. and Chair of Dean Keep’s Advisory Council hosted this annual program on doing business in international markets. The program began with a SKYPE session with TCNJ students studying in Heidelberg, Germany with Professor Karen Becker in a conversation facilitated by our Beta Gamma Sigma VP of Communications, marketing senior Brittany Mashel. They discussed the rewards and challenges of studying abroad as well as the volunteer program they have coordinated for children living at the Patrick Henry-Village refugee center.
