Frank Gardner and Sir John Scarlett

by Steve Bagshaw
Frank Gardner and Sir John Scarlett

We aren't sure whether you are still planning any events for 2017, or beginning to look to next year, but we'd like to put two names on your radar who offer valuable security and geopolitical insights and their effects on business. 

Sir John Scarlett, Former MI6 Chief 

Sir John Scarlett was head of the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) for five years. Having served in Paris, Nairobi, and twice in Moscow—before taking the reins during a period of significant global uncertainty and risk—his lessons and insights on global geopolitics, hot spots, and cyber security are highly prized. Thought-provoking, witty, and able to apply his insight to current events, Sir John Scarlett is a treat for globally-minded audiences.

 

Frank Gardner,  BBC’s Security Correspondent and Author

A frequent security analyst on TV and radio, Frank has a unique insight into the terror threat and its effects on the global economy having spent nine years as an investment banker in New York, London, and Bahrain before switching to journalism and joining the BBC in 1995. In 2004, he survived being shot six times at close range by Al-Qaeda terrorists in Saudia Arabia. He went on to write the bestselling book Blood and Sand, and was awarded an OBE in 2005 for services to journalism. Frank is an incredible storyteller who captivates audiences with his personal story, as well as colorful and brilliant commentary on current affairs, security and terrorism, and the Middle East.
