Why book a Geopolitics Speaker?

In an age of increasing geopolitical volatility, it no longer makes sense to hold traditional assumptions about the post-Cold War international order. 

It’s crucial for business leaders to have a comprehensive grasp of the forces driving this instability if they are to understand markets and make sound investment decisions. 

What will be the impact of Trump’s foreign policy? Will China’s rise continue? What will be the consequences of an increasingly confident Russia under Putin? Can Europe survive Brexit and the rise of populism?  

These are the types of questions that a great geopolitics speaker will answer. They will dissect the geo-strategic trends that are most impacting the business landscape, both in the short and medium term. And they will help the audience understand the possible scenarios, risks and opportunities they need to prepare for.  

From top-level policy-makers to the world’s leading analysts and academics, our global network of geopolitics speakers contains experts that will shed light on key issues, including: 

  • US foreign policy under Trump

  • The future of Europe

  • Brexit

  • The rise of China

  • US/China trade war

  • Putin’s Russia

  • The rise of populism

  • North Korea détente?

  • Middle East dynamics

  • The Iran nuclear deal
