Keynote Speaker Ideas: Economic & Geopolitical Trends

In a volatile world, markets are more exposed than ever to geopolitical upheaval – it is impossible to understand one without having a clear grasp of the other.

VBQ Speakers is proud to work with globally renowned thought-leaders on macroeconomics and geopolitics, who can shed light on critical issues such as:

  • How will the US-China trade war continue to play out?
  • With Brexit (supposedly) just a few weeks away, what is the outlook for Europe and the UK?
  • With the US Presidential election just over a year away, who are the main contenders and what will be the impact on the US domestically and in the global arena?
  • Does the withdrawal of US troops in northern Syria signal a new isolationist trend in US foreign policy?
  • How will the pro-Democracy protests in Hong Kong impact Beijing’s policy outlook?
  • Will public outcry against climate change have a tangible impact on the way we live and do business?

Below is a selection of some of the experts we most admire. I hope they’ll provide useful food for thought as you plan your future events.
