Our Europe Keynote Speakers

The concept of Europe and its relationship with America is ever evolving. Recent general election shocks, unrest in Catalonia and of course Brexit have made Europe a harder political landscape to predict and prepare for than ever before. There are contrasting conversations to be had about Europe and our relationship with it, from the building of economic relationships with China to the threat of Russia military activity in Ukraine. These speakers bring their experiences and expertise to discuss a future abroad less certain than ever before.
