An international entrepreneur with local roots will be the keynote speaker at the January meeting of the Alliance of Women Owned Businesses (AWOB).
Tacoma native James Hansen has spent most of his adult life in Europe, where his career has included serving as vice-consul for the American Consulate General in Italy, aide to the Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs (U.S. Department of State), and foreign correspondent for The Daily Telegraph newspaper in London.
He is the CEO of Hansen Worldwide, a Milan, Italy-based consulting firm specializing in assisting companies in Italy and worldwide with planning and execution of international communications projects. In addition, Hansen represents the Wall Street Journal in Italy, and he owns and operates a news service for foreign correspondents based in Italy.

This busy entrepreneur will share his international business experiences, how the entrepreneurial world has changed and what we need to stay globally “connected” when he speaks at the AWOB meeting on Jan. 9 at the Inn at Gig Harbor.
AWOB’s monthly meetings feature a guest speaker on topics of interest to female entrepreneurs. The event is free to AWOB members and for first-time guests. The charge for all others is $25, payable at the door, and attendees can sign up to become members at the meeting.
Attendees also may bring a door prize to get a spotlight moment to promote their business.
The business meeting starts at 5 p.m., and will be followed by AWOB Meet Me After Hours in the restaurant at the Inn at Gig Harbor, offering time for attendees to converse and continue networking in a casual setting.
