We are constantly seeing an increase in the interdependence of countries, companies, and people on a global scale. Today, globalization is particularly rapid and intense. This creates many potential advantages, but it also comes with many risks. Given the current state of world events, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the topic of geopolitics and diplomacy has become even more relevant.
Geopolitics is an interdisciplinary science that studies the relationship between the influence of geographical and historical factors on the formation and functioning of states. Of course, geopolitics would not exist without diplomacy, which involves making trade agreements and gaining military support for the country being represented - in a peaceful manner.
Our geopolitics and diplomacy keynote speakers come from different backgrounds and that allows us to offer you a tailored list of the best speakers for your event.
