World-renowned leader Gordon Brown is a powerful voice on many of today’s most pressing issues: global economic growth, international security, geopolitical affairs, education equality, and human rights.
Gordon Brown is one of the most authentic, courageous, and influential world leaders of our time. He has unflinchingly dedicated himself to improving lives and to ensuring prosperity for future generations. Action- and results-oriented, Brown focuses on practical solutions to address the critical challenges facing our increasingly complicated and interdependent world. He passionately delivers a thoughtful, comprehensive view of complex issues while challenging audiences to consider new perspectives and offering them solutions with which to approach the world today.
While Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Brown was one of the first leaders to take action in response to the global financial crisis—for which he is now widely credited for preventing a second Great Depression. He describes the crisis, as well as the other milestones that defined his career of public service, in his memoir, My Life, Our Times (2017). Today, Brown’s visionary strategies are being applied to critical economic and social policies. With phenomenal insight and practical acumen, he illuminates issues at the forefront of international debate: continued economic challenges; emerging threats to international security; the future of the European Union; current geopolitical challenges in the Middle East, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Russia; education equality; and urgent human crises being endured by the world’s underrepresented citizens. His most recent book, Seven Ways to Change the World: How to Fix the Most Pressing Issues We Face, was released in June 2021.

The Next Ten Years
Virtual reality, artificial intelligence, automation—a new generation of scientific, medical and technological advances that will fundamentally change what we do, who we are, how companies operate and what companies survive.
Gordon Brown is completing a new piece of work on what the world will look like in the next ten years and how this will affect us as individuals. He’ll look at China and Asia, Europe and America and how they will fare. He will explore the huge technological changes afoot. He’ll look at the capacity that algorithms will have to control our lives and our perceptions, and to scrutinize what we do. He’ll suggest what’s going to happen when issues of privacy, inequality and individual liberty arise. He’ll paint a picture of what we can do to put ourselves back in control.
His Life, Our Times: Lessons from the World Stage
Drawing from his candid memoir, My Life, Our Times, Gordon Brown opens up – for the first time – about his relationships with the past three U.S. presidents, as well as with prime ministers and world leaders from Chancellor Merkel to President Xi. He shares the lessons he learned from more than 30 years as a Member of Parliament, 10 years as Finance Minister and 3 years as Prime Minister. And he describes how those lessons can be applied to the challenges the world is facing today: financial crises, rising nationalism and protectionism, and uncertain bilateral and multilateral relationships. You will walk away from this eye-opening presentation with unique insight into Brown’s personal life and professional career, and unbridled optimism for our collective future.
