As a former UK International Development Secretary and current advisor to U2 Frontman Bono, on investment and development in Africa, Alexander provides a depth of knowledge on securing ethical investment to tackle global poverty, the role of private equity, and Government involvement in enterprises across the continent. Having served at the UK Governor of the World Bank and UK Trade Minister, Alexander offers invaluable analysis of trends in global finance, cryptocurrency, and cybercrime helping businesses identify challenges and opportunities and describes how businesses and organizations can lead and succeed in the changing global economy.

Alexander discusses the global trendlines beneath today’s headlines that are shaping politics and economics in what many see as the Asian Century. Following nine years at the highest levels of Government in the UK - including as Minister for South and SouthEast Asia and as the UK’s Governor of the World Bank and a post politics academic and business career, Alexander offers a unique perspective on current global affairs and an understanding of the prevalence of authoritarian regimes in East-Asia. He offers an analysis of Asian markets and diplomatic relationships across the region, with a specific focus on China's push to take a larger role in global affairs through the One Belt One Road Initiative. Alexander explains how increased connectivity and cooperation between China, the land-based Silk Road Economic Belt, the oceangoing Maritime Silk Road and Eurasian countries provides important opportunities for growth and partnership in business across the globe.

A combination of economic anger, cultural anxiety, and political alienation is changing our societies, impacting our economies, and altering our politics. Alexander explains how these factors, combined with the advent of social media, have given rise to populist movements across the West; resulting in the election of President Trump in the USA and the UK's decision to leave the European Union. Alexander discusses the implications of a Trump administration on the West’s economic partnerships and security alliances. With both the transatlantic relationship and European unity at risk, Alexander explores how the West is confronting the new authoritarianism from Asia in the East to Europe’s borders in the West. Utilizing his experience as former UK Europe Minister and Minister for South and South East Asia, together with his ongoing work with the Future of Diplomacy program at Harvard Kennedy School, Alexander offers an analysis of the impact of Britain’s Brexit on business in terms of trade, investment, regulation, and the relocation of financial and other EU institutions from London to other European cities and what this means for long term economic growth and diplomatic relations across the West.
