While the outcome of any US election has profound implications for the rest of the world, the impact of President-elect Biden’s victory over Donald Trump promises to be seismic. Keynote speakers and forecasters predict a more outward-looking America: one that revitalises ties with the EU, reaffirms commitment to tackling climate change and revives relations with the World Health Organisation to help bring an end to the Covid-19 pandemic.
With such a sea-change comes a multitude of unknowns for every business, with question marks over the UK-US ‘special relationship’, trade relations with China and the longer term reactions of the global markets.
We work with a myriad of keynote speakers on the political frontlines who can unpack these complex issues. Here are just some of the trusted voices you can choose from:
A veteran of the US State Department and former advisor to Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama, James speaks from first-hand experience of US policy-making as he considers the consequences of economic, military and diplomatic action across the globe.
One of the BBC’s most seasoned Washington correspondents, Clive has covered the administrations of three US presidents, six US presidential elections and the impeachment of Bill Clinton. The award-winning journalist offers a highly considered analysis of transatlantic relations and the way ahead.
After being posted to Washington as British Ambassador towards the end of the Clinton Presidency, Christopher’s extended five year term made him the longest serving post-war British Ambassador to the US. As a keynote speaker, he examines the fluctuating power dynamic between Europe and America, and the role of diplomacy in effecting change.
Newsnight’s lead presenter, and according to The Guardian “arguably the BBC’s sharpest interviewer”, Emily is firmly established as one of the broadcaster’s most recognisable news presenters. An award-winning journalist – not to mention the irreverent co-host of the BBC’s highly popular Americast podcast – Emily offers up-to-the-minute analysis of the latest breaking stories from Capitol Hill and Wall Street to Four Seasons Total Landscaping.
David served as senior strategist to Barack Obama’s historic campaign for the presidency in 2008 and his 2012 re-election campaign. In a fraught geo-political climate, David deconstructs the rhetoric and delivers a frank assessment of the central issues from the perspective of an Oval Office insider.
