Exciting News! Read below about the launch of our new Podcast Series, designed to help you tackle today’s tough, recurring issues.
The New Things That Matter Podcast Series is an array of monthly episodes designed to generate creative, critical thinking around the challenges of our time.
Echoing last year’s introductory season, Things That Matter 2.0 features brilliant, inspiring, and insightful panelists you’re sure to enjoy. Each episode will air by Zoom live at 5pm PT / 8pm ET on the second Thursday of each month, starting November 10, 2022, when we’ll have senior Taiwan Foreign Affairs Officer Angel Liu and acclaimed author Jonathan Manthorpe discuss “Democracy and Peace in the Taiwan Straits”.

Our New Website features information on the podcasts and more. The logo for Pan Pacific means “Excellent Peace” in Chinese, the theme that underlines everything we try to achieve. We bring together people and parties divided by language, culture, business perspectives, or legal interest.
Follow Our New Blog Series that will relate to topics raised by Things That Matter 2.0. The blogs are designed to be relevant, useful, and less than a 5-minute read. The latest blog covers thoughts gleaned from my recent fact-finding meetings in Taiwan on security matters that touch us all.
Follow us on Social Media - LinkedIn; Facebook; Instagram; and Twitter.
Let’s together promote knowledge and hope at a time of heightened anxiety and gnawing perplexity.
With best regards,
Each of the following shows will air by live Zoom at 5pm PT / 8pm ET on the second Thursday of every month. Register for free on the website for:
