As the world grows ever more uncertain, we’re increasingly asked for geopolitical keynote speakers to shed some light on the chaos.
What is geopolitics? Simply put, it’s the study of political, economic, and geographical factors which influence a government’s policy. It’s become vital to understand the politics and economy not just of your own country, but those of neighbouring countries as well.
Geopolitical keynote speakers come from all walks of life – they’re economists, they’re journalists, they’re business leaders, they’re politicians or policy-makers. What they share is an unrivalled insight into our world, what the future is likely to hold, and crucially, what we can do now to prepare.
So – a geopolitical keynote speaker will be the most important and influential external speaker at your next conference. The following experts will be able to leave your audiences feeling more informed, more engaged, and more confident of the decisions they need to make
Vicky Pryce – Vicky is an economist who’s held senior positions both in government and in big business, so she’s exceptionally well-placed to make geopolitics relevant to a business audience. She has a particular focus on Eurozone geopolitics.
Yanis Varoufakis – the Greek former Finance Minister comes from an academic background, and still regularly lectures across the world. He’s become a bit of a superstar, and his funny and charming manner always goes down well at conferences.
James Kynge – the Financial Times’ Emerging Markets Editor is also an expert on China and Asia more generally, charting the rise (and potential fall?) of Beijing on the world scene. He divides his time between the UK and China, and as you’d expect, is fluent in Mandarin (and Japanese).
Bronwen Maddox – Bronwen is brilliant at explaining the relationship between business and politics. Originally a Wall Street analyst, she’s also perfectly-positioned to shed light on the Trump administration, and its knock-on effects around the world.
Herman Van Rompuy – the former Belgian Prime Minister then became the first President of the European Council of Heads of State and Government. His role was essentially making sure that all the European leaders kept talking to each other – consequently he has a fair few interesting stories to share!
Todd Buchholz – Todd was Director of Economic Policy at the White House for George Bush Snr, and since then has run one of the world’s largest hedge funds, lectured at Harvard, and produced the hit musical Jersey Boys. He recently came into the office to give us an update on his latest book.
