GlobalPittsburgh Solidifies Reputation for Creating Itineraries for International Training Delegations

What does it mean when we say that GlobalPittsburgh has proven expertise in arranging short-term training programs for emerging international leaders?  The feedback that we receive from our clients regularly indicates that they are very satisfied with the itineraries and other arrangements designed for them by Gail Shrott, Director of GlobalPittsburgh’s International Leaders Program.

Nathaniel Phillips, Manager of 
Business Development at Mascaro 
Construction Co. (standing), met on 
June 17 with Open World Leadership 
Center-sponsored group from 
Kazakhstan examining Alternative 
Energy and Green Business
Our organization arranges logistics (hotels, transportation, meals, etc.) as well as appointments tailored to meet participants’ specific training goals. Additionally, GlobalPittsburgh partners with departments at regional universities and with other organizations and companies to enhance their training offerings. 

For these partners, we may arrange meetings with professionals addressing a very specific issue relevant to the interests of the training participants, or may arrange dinners or homestays with host families to help participants feel more welcome and more connected to the Pittsburgh region.
The training programs designed and implemented by GlobalPittsburgh are frequently sponsored by federally-funded programs, such as the Open World Leadership Center, and are created in close collaboration with our clients.

Kevin Sheen, Senior Director,
Development, EverPower Wind
Holdings, Inc. also met with
the group on June 17.
From June 13-22, GlobalPittsburgh hosted a group of five Open World delegates from Kazakhstan examining the topic of “Alternative Energy and Green Business.” 

According to the facilitator accompanying the group, Ms. Yuliya Beloslyudseva, “The program…covered many various themes and was very dynamic.”

GlobalPittsburgh arranged homestays for the delegates, daily transportation to and from meetings and activities, as well as fifteen interactive meetings or tours with local leaders working on the themes explored by the delegation.

Earlier this year, on Friday evening, March 21, GlobalPittsburgh worked in collaboration with the Institute for International Education to arrange dinners for 139 Fulbright Scholars attending a Fulbright Enrichment Seminar.  

Our organization coordinated small group dinners with a total of 44 host families, and orchestrated the logistics of having the Scholars connect with their hosts in four different areas of the city or suburbs.

GlobalPittsburgh has the capacity to arrange a training itinerary or training enhancements such as homestays or hosted dinners for small groups or individuals. For more information, please contact Gail Shrott at
