An engaging, decisive leader during one of the most turbulent times in Australian politics, Tony Abbott provides timely and candid analysis of the most complex and critical issues facing our world today.

Tony Abbott served as Prime Minister of Australia from 2013 to 2015. He is credited with policy implementations as early as the first day of the new Parliament, including the introduction of legislation to repeal the carbon tax and to stop illegal maritime arrivals, each of which received both Brickbats and Bouquets at the time, and since. During his tenure as Prime Minister, Abbott’s government created over 300,000 jobs and oversaw free trade agreements signed with China, Japan and South Korea. The deal with China was the first between a G20 country and the world's second largest economy.  Geography alone renders Australia vulnerable to terror, and thus Abbott is able to speak thoughtfully on terrorism and security in the 21st Century, including the threat of ISIS and pervasive religious fundamentalism. With profound depth of experience, he is keenly positioned to offer unparalleled insight on leadership (and its ups and downs), the global economy, global trade, discuss a Western perspective on the future of Asia, explore the short- and long-term future of China, and provide a unique and timely political outlook for your audience. Even after the leaving the Prime Ministership, Abbott has kept leading Australia's key debates on energy and climate, and on immigration. He's also helped to lead debate in Australia on the contribution to the country of western civilization and Australia's role in it.
