From the economy and trade to politics and diplomacy, few have the clear understanding of world events that Sir John Major brings in explaining today’s most complex problems. With his trademark wit, warmth and wisdom, Major showcases his uncanny ability to foresee which emerging international issues will become tomorrow’s headline news. Major takes a hard look how technological advances have affected developing regions like South America and Africa and what this means to the economic, social and political stability of the rest of the world. Heavily involved in bringing peace to Northern Ireland, Major engages in a conversation on the world’s trouble spots and what nations must do to deter terrorism and maintain peace. Prime Minister during a time of unprecedented transformation, Major looks at the European Union and how international cooperation has affected the world in the current economic downturn.

Wise CEOs are watching China carefully, knowing that the China factor could determine the success or failure of their companies in the years ahead. The initial strategy of simply being there is no longer enough. Now, companies need a more nuanced strategy in order to penetrate secondary cities and market segments and to tap China’s vast potential for innovation. Tom Manning challenges the conventional approach, provokes awareness of new techniques, and suggests how every Board and executive team can take their game to the next level, deepening their plan for China and integrating it with their global strategy.

In the next decade and a half, Asia will surpass the combined strength of North America and Europe in economic might, population size and military spending.

From her front-row view of this colossal shift, first at the State Department and now as an advisor to American CEOs, Anja Manuel escorts the audience on an intimate tour of the corridors of power of Asia’s predominant powers—China and India—to reveal what makes each country “tick” and what Americans doing business there should know. Through vibrant stories that have been described as “both heartbreaking and funny,” she reveals how each country is working to surmount enormous challenges—from the crushing poverty of Indian slum dwellers and Chinese factory workers, to outrageous corruption scandals, rotting rivers and unbreathable air, to managing their citizens’ discontent, and how some of these challenges create opportunities for joint work with American companies.

Based on her forthcoming book This Brave New World, Manuel shows us an optimistic path—American politicians, businesses and ordinary citizens can bring China and India along as partners rather than alienating one or both, and thus extend our own leadership in the world.

In this charged political environment, Anja Manuel is able to cut through the rhetoric to offer an informed analysis of how President Trump’s policies might affect the United States’ relationships with foreign allies and enemies alike. Drawing on years of experience working at the State Department and as an international business consultant with the esteemed firm of RiceHadleyGates, Manuel breaks down the sometimes inflammatory foreign policy and trade pronouncements into thoughtful and understandable realities. From the likely direction of U.S. trade policy, to relations China and India, to what the instability of the Middle East and Russia’s assertive policies might mean for the U.S. businesses in the near term, Manuel can draw on expertise in every region of the world to provide answers to today's issues. Anja’s rational and measured approach to the issues has established her as an informed resource for audiences around the world.

Michael McFaul (Exclusively WSB)

Former U.S. Ambassador to the Russian Federation Michael McFaul takes audiences inside the escalating crisis in Ukraine and the Russian presence in Crimea. He offers a comprehensive explanation for why this conflict between Russia and the West has occurred, and speculates about the long-term security and economic implications of this new era in Russia’s relations with the West. What will be the effect of the sanctions and should they be stronger? How do Russia’s actions impact the ongoing war in Syria and the Iran nuclear talks, both of which Russia is a major player? How is this new era similar and different from the Cold War? Informed from five years of experience of working with the Russian government at the highest levels, McFaul provides unique insights to one of the greatest challenges to European stability in several decades. Both as a scholar and senior official in the Obama administration, McFaul also provides a uniquely informed perspective on U.S. foreign policy challenges, both with respect to this current crisis with Russia but also more generally.
