DIPLOMACY / INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS SPEAKER
How do we achieve the optimal mix of soft and hard power to advance American interests?
The President's foreign policy tool kit must be equipped to effectively meet today's challenges. These include Russian aggression against its neighbors, growing competition from China, checking the nuclear ambitions of North Korea and Iran, and deciding when, how, and where best to use American military power.
I am available to offer in person or remotely -- an insightful presentation for your association, civic, university or corporate group on these and other cutting-edge topics. I have deep professional experience working around the globe as a diplomat, peacemaker, and educator and can tap that to provide an informative and thought-provoking review of key foreign policy issues.
I am an avid public speaker, comfortable in settings small, medium, or large. I am available for seminars, dinners, conferences and retreats in the United States and overseas (I am typically in Europe every 2-3 months, most frequently in London and Brussels, and in Asia twice a year).

Ukraine, Russia and War in Eastern Europe
