Madeleine K. Albright (Exclusively WSB)

As a former Secretary of State and current businesswoman, Madeleine Albright has a deep understanding of the connections that exist between international economic developments and geopolitical security. No one is better positioned than Albright to offer insights about the policy challenges faced by President Trump or to analyze the strategies being employed by other world leaders, including those in such pivotal countries as China, Russia, India, Pakistan and Iran. Dr. Albright is an expert on how decisions are made at the global level and has strong opinions on the pros and cons of investing in emerging markets. She also speaks with force, clarity and humor on the many parallels that exist between operating a business and managing world affairs.

As a current Senior Advisor to a new $2bn global impact fund, Alexander provides experienced insight into macroeconomic changes and the business potential of developing responsible practices. 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.

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.

José María Aznar (Exclusively WSB)

Before José María Aznar took office as prime minister, his country was experiencing high unemployment and little growth. Aznar immediately instituted reforms—liberalizing the market and privatizing industry—bold moves that increased Spain’s GNP by 68% and propelled Spain to the eighth largest economy in the world. Now Aznar shares with audiences worldwide his strategies for reviving flagging economies and shows businesses how to profit in the new market-oriented Europe. Today, his country is now sinking under sovereign debt and facing severe austerity measures and a recession predicted to shrink its economy by 0.8% in 2012. Aznar explores the nature of the financial virus that afflicted Europe, the likelihood of global contagion and what can be done to prevent it.
