From the halls of governments to corporate boardrooms and mainstream media, Molavi's distinguished global outlook helps business leaders of all kinds assess how key issues impacting our world will affect one’s organization and industry.

Currently a senior global advisor at Oxford Analytica and a regular contributor to the Daily Brief, Molavi is also a senior fellow at the New America Foundation, a non-partisan think tank, where he studies the links between economic development and democratization, with a special emphasis on the Middle East. Previously, as former director of the World Economic Roundtable, Molavi led an ambitious effort to re-map the global economy, focusing on "The New Silk Road as one of the great geopolitical opportunities of the 21st century.

A powerhouse journalist, Molavi's credits include Reuters, The Washington Post, and the Financial Times. A frequent media commentator, he has appeared on leading outlets such as CNN, the BBC, and NPR, and his articles and op-eds are frequently featured in publications including The New York Times, The Economist, Businessweek, Institutional Investor and the New Republic. He is the critically acclaimed author of "The Soul of Iran", called a "must-read" by renowned journalist and TIME’s editor-at-large, Fareed Zakaria.

Praised for his engaging style and expertise on a range of economic and geopolitical topics, Molavi delivers a fascinating in-depth forecast of the key global issues impacting organizations today and shaping the future of business.
