Ian Bremmer’s Speech Topics

  • Managing Risk in an Unstable World

    To navigate globalization, every business decision-maker weighs economic variables when considering overseas investments or market exposure. But to spot crucial opportunities and manage risk, they must also understand the political factors and trends changing our world in real-time. Whether it’s increasingly contentious relations between China and the United States, the war in Ukraine, a more complex regulatory environment in Europe, a newly global focus from India, surges of populism in Latin America, heightened competition in Africa, or dozens of other politically driven trends, political analyst and entrepreneur Ian Bremmer will detail how political risk is creating new sets of business winners and losers. 

    At this presentation, audiences will learn:

    • How to spot political risk on the horizon and balance it against economic opportunities
    • How to understand the opportunities, and dangers, of multilayered relations between Washington and Beijing
    • How to identify the broader trends remaking tomorrow’s global balance of power
    • How to process the technological changes now transforming geopolitics
  • Navigating the Geopolitical Recession

    For the past 15 years, the post-Cold War global order has been breaking down, leaving us to respond to a series of crises with both political, market, and business implications. Ian Bremmer explains that geopolitics has entered a bust cycle. The world’s most powerful country— the United States — has become the most politically dysfunctional rich-world country. The world’s most important bilateral relationship — US-China —is deteriorating more quickly than leaders can build new guardrails. Today’s global institutions no longer reflect the world’s true balance of power. The result: a growing vacuum of leadership and cross-border coordination. This geopolitical recession will continue to limit our ability to respond to crises like the pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine war, climate change, and the emergence of disruptive new technologies. 

    Ian will share ideas and insights to help policymakers and business decision-makers navigate a world in accelerating transition.  

  • The Power of Crisis

    In a G-Zero world, one without strong and sustainable international leadership, Ian Bremmer argues we are unprepared for a trio of looming crises—future global health emergencies, transformative climate change, and the next technological revolution. Ian discusses the geopolitics of…

    • War in Ukraine: How will Russia’s challenge to the existing international system and China’s ongoing effort to find the most profitable role to play in ending it shape the next security order and the future of the global economy?
    • Climate change: What risks will it create for political and business decision-makers in years to come, and what lessons can it teach us about the future of international cooperation?
    • Tech: Ian assesses the growing risks of AI, quantum computing, cyberwarfare, and their impact on the future of government, trade, and the international system.

  • The Geopolitics of Artificial Intelligence

    What comes after the G-Zero world order? 

    Today, it’s not governments but the world’s powerhouse tech companies that set the rules in the digital world. They, not our elected leaders, decide how you and I share ideas and information. They have extraordinary real-time, real-world power. How will the technology titans use that power?    

    They will transform the ways we work, think, learn, play, and live. We will have longer, healthier and more productive lives that would dazzle those who lived only in a dial-up world. But these same tech companies will also decide the world’s balance of military power, create new trade and investment patterns, and decide the outcome of our race to save the planet from a human-created climate catastrophe.  

    Ian Bremmer will argue that the tech titans will determine the next world order – and whether we have a brighter future or a world without freedom.
