Peter Zeihan’s Keynote Speaker Bio

Geopolitical Strategist Peter Zeihan is a global energy, demographic and security expert.

Why Peter Zeihan

  • Geopolitics, demography and shale energy are overturning the global order. There are plenty of traps to avoid as the old system falls apart, but there are also a great many bright spots brimming with opportunity. Learn what to look for.
  • Find out why China will crash, when Europe will fly apart, how far Russia will push and why Iran will become the United States’ best friend.
  • Learn about the growth stories of the future. Which sectors will do well in which country over various time frames.

Zeihan’s worldview marries the realities of geography and populations to a deep understanding of how global politics impact markets and economic trends, helping industry leaders navigate today’s complex mix of geopolitical risks and opportunities. With a keen eye toward what will drive tomorrow’s headlines, his irreverent approach transforms topics that are normally dense and heavy into accessible, relevant takeaways for audiences of all types.

In his career, Zeihan has ranged from working for the US State Department in Australia, to the DC think tank community, to helping develop the analytical models for Stratfor, one of the world’s premier private intelligence companies. Mr. Zeihan founded his own firm — Zeihan on Geopolitics — in 2012 in order to provide a select group of clients with direct, custom analytical products. Today those clients represent a vast array of sectors including energy majors, financial institutions, business associations, agricultural interests, universities and the U.S. military.

His freshman book, The Accidental Superpower, forecasts the coming collapse of the global order. It debuted in 2014.

His newest project, The Absent Superpower, published in December 2016. It highlights what comes next.

  • We have used Stratford/Peter’s services for seven years and found his analysis and presentation to be both insightful and thought provoking. He has been a partner with us as we have grown our hedge fund from $50mm AUM to $2.5bln+.  Anyone looking to better understand global geopolitics and its effect on capital markets should consider having regular de-briefings with Peter.
