Morgan Patrick

"When colleagues ask “what did you do to make a global role happen?” I say that PFS helped me acquire the skills and experiences needed to speak more strongly about my ambitions for global work. While I have ample exposure to global happenings at work, PFS provided the only opportunity to do actual work globally."
