May be the most fascinating presentation I have ever seen at an event. Global geopolitics and the impact on trade, economies, and business. This is brilliant.

The thoughtful, comprehensive, understandable and practical view you brought to the complex problems and issues revolving around geopolitics truly enlightened and engaged the audience at P&I’s Global Future of Retirement conference. Setting the tone on the second day of the event kept people talking, and your presentation was referred to numerous times by other speakers throughout the day.
