Note to Visitors

This is but the start of a reconstruction and enhancement of the Global Business Dialogue website, www.gbdinc.org.  In a sense, it is premature to put it on line now.  We are doing it because we want everyone who is interested to have access to the three things this page contains: i)  a statement of what GBD is, ii) information on the next GBD event, and iii) the start of the most recent TTALK Quote.
