WASHINGTON, PA (Oct. 18, 2012)— Anil Singh-Molares, a Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow and internationally renowned entrepreneur and philanthropist who once managed all internationalization vendor relations for Microsoft, discussed “Liberal Arts and the Global Economy; Key Skills for the 21st Century” at a public lecture Wednesday, Oct. 24, in Yost Auditorium at Washington & Jefferson College’s Howard J. Burnett Center.
Born in Holland and raised in Europe and the United States, Singh-Molares is a global citizen and businessperson. Fluent in Spanish, French and English, he is a citizen of Spain and a permanent resident of the U.S. Drawing on his liberal arts education, cross-cultural upbringing and managerial skills, Singh-Molares is a recipient of the Microsoft Achievement Award.
Since leaving Microsoft, Singh-Molares founded EchoMundi LLC, a rapidly growing international services firm that helps corporations conduct business abroad. Responding to the experience of many around him who have dealt with preeclampsia, a life-threatening, pregnancy-related disease, he is a co-founder and board member of the Preeclampsia Foundation.
During his week-long stay at W&J, Singh-Molares visited numerous classes, where he spoke about entrepreneurship in a global marketplace and the connection between a liberal arts degree and success in the business world.
