WHY BOOK A GEOPOLITICS SPEAKER?

In an age of increasing political 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.

Has Putin’s invasion of Ukraine heralded a new era of great power rivalry? How will China’s relationship with the West evolve? What are the risks over Taiwan and North Korea’s ever more assertive nuclear testing?

These are the types of questions that a great politics 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 politics speakers contains experts that will shed light on key issues, including:

  • US foreign policy

  • The Ukraine war
  • The future of Europe

  • Brexit

  • The rise of China

  • US/China trade war

  • The rise of populism

  • North Korea détente?

  • Middle East dynamics

  • The Iran nuclear deal

  • Emerging markets
