Tom Fletcher Interview: Former UK Ambassador

In a compelling interview, Tom Fletcher bridges the realms of diplomacy, leadership, and the rapid technological evolution of our times. 

Having advised three former UK Prime Ministers and been in close quarters with global icons – such as Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Nelson Mandela – Tom Fletcher brings a wealth of knowledge and a unique perspective to the conversation on leadership and navigating the complexities of the modern world.

He poses the question, “are you using the tech, or being used by the tech?” highlighting the urgency for adaptability in the face of an era where “we will go through as much technological change in the next century as in the last 43 centuries.” The Principle of Hertford College, Oxford University, emphasizes the critical role education must play in preparing for this future.

No stranger to navigating through conflict towards peace, the former UK Ambassador discusses global politics, offering his perspective on the Middle East and the crucial elections ahead, framing it as “the free world is on the ballot” and a “battle for liberal democracy.”

During this interview, Tom Fletcher’s thought-provoking outlook provides valuable insight into the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead…
