Speech Topics

Brexit & British Politics

Brexit: What happens now?

An expert overview of what is likely to happen over the next 12 months of Brexit, taking stock of developments in Downing Street, parliament, Brussels and the business world.



On the ropes: Will multinational institutions survive attacks from within?

The WTO and EU are under sustained attack from right and left-wing populism. How is the battle taking place and can they survive the assault


Business & Politics

‘F*** business’: What happened to business’ relation with politics and how can it be repaired?

The business lobby was once courted by both main parties, but now they find themselves despised by Labour and dismissed by the Conservatives. What led to the breakdown and how can it be fixed?


Fake news and the future of politics

Where do we go next: Disturbance in the media and fake news.

Mainstream politicians routinely discredit the media, and fake news is making global events largely unpredictable. How have changes in behaviour and technology influenced this, and where will it go next?



Is there a limit to the global spread of populism?

Populists are defeating established parties and threatening to overturn established institutions. What defines and motivates the populist assault, and which political systems have succeeded in resisting them?
