ABOUT MICK McCONNELL
Mick McConnell is Director, Client Services, Interbrand New York. When asked, What’s one thing you would change about the world if you could?
Mick answered: If I could change one thing about the world I would like to see mandatory global participation in solving serious conditions/issues other than military action. To date, the US alone has spent $1.2 trillion dollars on wars/conflicts since 2001. If we could apply the same resources to curing diabetes, cancer research, etc I would hope we could see significant change.
