On Diplomacy, Politics, and Hygge with Ambassador Rufus Gifford
The Forum’s incoming Director for Marketing and Communications, Courtney Hulse, sits down with Rufus Gifford, former U.S. Ambassador to Denmark under President Obama, for a lively conversation. Ambassador Gifford takes listeners behind the diplomatic curtain and discusses his unique approach to diplomacy, the importance of people-to-people interactions in this field, and delves into more detail about his time in Denmark. Fun fact: Ambassador Gifford is the subject of a docu-series I Am The Ambassador, which is another unique tool he used to promote public diplomacy. You can find it on Netflix! Ambassador Gifford is now running for U.S. Congress in Massachusetts’s 3rd congregational district.
