I wanted to let you know that this event was absolutely spectacular! Ambassador Bolton was incredible! The feedback was truly amazing. I started receiving emails, calls and texts minutes after the event, telling me how much they loved it. As the attendees were leaving the luncheon, I was told by many of them that it was unbelievable how Amb. Bolton just speaks with no notes and the smiles on their faces said it all!

Foreign Challenges Facing The Trump Administration

Donald Trump’s inauguration as President heralds the possibility of dramatic changes in American national-security policies.  Certainly, something needs to give, because threats and challenges to the united States and its allies around the world:

  • China’s pursuit of an aggressive strategy in the South China Sea and an unprecedented buildup in cyberwarfare, nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles and naval capabilities
  •  Russia’s efforts to meddle in foreign elections, including our own, dramatically increased influence in the troubled Middle East, and growing pressure on neighboring countries in eastern Europe and the former USSR
  •  The Middle East’s continued descent into chaos, with Israel threatened by terrorists and Iran’s nuclear-weapons program, with ISIS and al Qaeda still menacing America and Europe

The list goes on and on. Will President Trump reverse Barack Obama’s policies across the board? Or will we see more continuity than the political pundits have been predicting?

Based on his extensive political and diplomatic experience during three presidential administrations, Ambassador Bolton examines the threats and challenges facing America. He will cover these or other topics of particular interest to your group, either in a stand-alone speech or as part of a debate or panel discussion. He shares with audiences:

  •  Insight into the likely contrasts and continuities between Presidents Trump and Obama
  •  His recommendations for dealing with strategic threats from Russia and China and the longer-term threats of international terrorism and nuclear proliferation, among others
  •  Provocative thoughts on how to protect Israel’s security and that of other U.S. friends in the region while bringing lasting peace to the Middle East

Threats to America from Cyberspace

Threats from foreign government cyber-warfare and espionage against U.S. government and corporate computer systems and critical information and communication systems generally have increased at an ever-accelerating pace. China stole tens of millions of government personnel records, North Korea hacked Sony Pictures, and Russian efforts to meddle in the 2016 election are only a few of the most prominent examples.

Ambassador Bolton will address this rapidly growing threat and how the new Trump Administration and Congress should react:

  • What is America doing in response? What have we learned from recent attacks?
  • How do we strengthen our defenses, and are we building a robust offensive capability?  
  • How does cyber-warfare fit into the larger structures of American foreign and defense policies?

Your Business: A Global Political and Economic Risk Assessment

Based on his years of international experience, Ambassador Bolton discusses current political risk conditions on a global basis, tailoring his presentation to the particular needs of your audience, including deeper discussions on areas such as East or South Asia, Europe, Russia, the Middle East and elsewhere.

His unique perspective on the international political environment gives audiences the tools to make crucial business decisions. He specifically shares:

  • The current political risk assessment of any given market or markets, grounded in history and projected forward for business-planning purposes
  • How today’s political risks and opportunities intersect with the local business climate
  • How to succeed in the target marketplaces
