Join this highly interactive and insightful masterclass to appreciate the past, present and future of international affairs and the impact on your business.

In the age of escalating geopolitical tensions, the shift from power from West to East and intense superpower competition, geopolitics has returned to the fore. In today's highly integrated global economy, international politics, economics and trade have a deep and direct impact on regional companies' strategies, growth and performance.

Geopolitics is no longer a good to know but a must know for any international executive, consultant and entrepreneur. Your ability to plan key strategies, make intelligent decisions and execute responsively depends on your appreciation of what is happening around the world across political, economic, technological, environmental and social spheres.

“This is an extremely useful and unique sharing session on Geopolitics by Charlie Ang. He does not merely scratch the surface but deepdive into the core of current state of affairs to help us understand the past and present and, better still, anticipate the future of global developments. He is able to connect complex topics like history, geography, psychology, economics and politics into easy to digest narratives. Highly recommended for any manager and entrepreneur doing business or managing operations in the region!”, Wee Chin Chuan, Executive Director, Oriel Group of Companies

In this interactive and insightful talk, Business Futurist, International Analyst and Cultural Expert Charlie Ang will help you filter the essence from the noise and cut through the fog to truly understand the international affairs of today.

In a no-holds barred, crisp and clear style, Charlie will elucidate the past, current and future state of affairs, from the lens of history, politics, geography, economics, psychology, civilizations, culture and technology.
