Maureen and USA Politics -physical event

This is the version of the event that will be held physically at 67 Pall Mall. The price includes dinner.

A citizen's view of the US political system from across the Pond

What happens in the US can be both confounding and consequential. Take for example, how the US elects its Presidents. Counter to popular belief, US Presidents are not elected by popular vote. Instead, the US chooses them via an indirect process called the Electoral College. This process permits minority positions to have outsized influence. This can lead to unlikely results and Presidents who win the election while losing the popular vote.

Maureen Sweeney is a dual US and Irish citizen who has lived and worked in the US, UK & Ireland.  She has seen how the US is perceived around the world and been asked many questions about the US political process. Now based in Boston, she will share her perspective on recent US Presidential elections from an engaged citizen’s point of view with the desire to provide some insight for people who live elsewhere.

Professionally, Maureen is an experienced board director and independent consultant. Currently, she sits on the University at Albany Foundation board. Previously, she served on the CopperPoint and Sitel Group boards. Also, she mentors startups that use digital and data to disrupt and enhance traditional industries.

Maureen spent most of her career with Liberty Mutual, a Fortune 100 global company working in the Insurance and Asset Management industries. While there, she ran multiple businesses and was an SBU CFO. While living in the UK, Maureen led a digital insurance startup that developed pricing models using data analytics in real time. This new business shaped Liberty’s digital pricing strategies globally.

When not working or engaging with civic organizations, Maureen enjoys combining her love of travel and wine. She earned her WSET Level 3 (Advanced) Wine Certification and enjoys traveling for field research
