At the vanguard of his generation, 36 years ago Harry Broadman began a career focused on business opportunities and risks in emerging markets. Today, he’s globally known as a venerable practitioner of the design and execution of novel investment strategies in such markets to achieve rapid business growth and rigorous risk-mitigation—strategies that focus on building durable cross-border trade and investment transactions, potent strategic alliances and partnership, agile supply chains, robust corporate governance protocols, tough compliance and anti-corruption controls, and incentives for sustained innovation.
Re-inventing himself multiple times over the years in an interdisciplinary fashion across greatly differentiated senior roles in the private sector—interspersed with stints as a high-level White House economic official, trade negotiator and Senate committee professional staff member— Broadman emerged as an authority on the fundamental drivers and contours of the transformation world markets have undergone—and continue to do so—long before the term “globalisation” was ever uttered.
Harry Broadman has worked on the ground in more than 80 emerging markets across 5 continents, including China, India and the rest of Asia; much of Latin America; in Russia and almost every other Former Soviet Union state; across Eastern & Central Europe; the Balkans; Turkey; most of Africa; and much of the Middle East. He has advised entities as diverse as GE, IBM, Coke, Canon, Exxon-Mobil, Valmet, KIA, ITW, Abraaj, Corning, Heineken, Merck, Pepsi, Walmart, Deere, Mars, Avon, Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board, Intel, Temasek, Berkshire Hathaway, McCormick, ICANN, SunEdison, Westinghouse, Dow, Siemens, Standard Chartered, Microsoft, Manitowoc, PPG, Tyco, Caterpillar, ADIA, Future Fund.
As a speaker, he brings to audiences a unique combination of fundamentally insightful views and operational lessons about the ways is which market and policy dynamics will impact C-suites, boards, managers and workers as well as suppliers and customers, and how they’ll alter business fortunes.
Harry Broadman has the rare ability to frame such effects from a genuinely prospective vantage point rather than conventional rear-view mirror extrapolations, and through a prism incorporating intrinsic non-linearities of market changes. And, all done in a highly entertaining mode, infused with his infectious sense of humour.
"Harry Broadman was asked to speak spontaneously and interactively with another expert on the “Challenges of China Today and Tomorrow”. Harry’s expertise, sense of the audience and demeanor allowed for a level of enhanced enlightenment beyond our expectations."
Earl Wright, Chairman, AMG Bank
"Harry Broadman spoke at our bi-annual US Cotton Summit to a very diverse global audience of over 400 people from 30 countries and wowed them with his impressive knowledge of the world and his insights about how history is shaping so many of the current issues we face. We had very positive reviews in our follow up survey and I would heartily recommend Harry as a speaker."
