Dan Kingsley has over 20 years of experience as an entrepreneur, developing small and medium enterprises (SME) engaged in global trade. Over the past five years, he has focused on programs that develop growth opportunities for large-sector specific business groups (associations, clusters and business-support organizations). These have been trade facilitation programs that incorporate tools to improve business information and market access.
Kingsley has been a feature speaker at international conferences, both in the U.S. and in developing countries, focusing on global trade alliances that foster SME development and on projects that focus on business information tools. These conferences were sponsored by academic, private and public sector, and government organizations. A common denominator in all his professional activities has been the goal of improving the trade capacities of private sector firms to enable them to enter global markets.
