Afshin Molavi Speaker Biography


Afshin Molavi stands at the intersection of the most vital issues shaping the future of our world today: the rise of emerging markets, Middle East political and economic turmoil, and U.S. foreign, security and economic policy. 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.

The 5 "Everything" Trends Shaping The World and What It Means for Politics, Business, Technology and "Everything" Else
From rapid urbanization and growing middle classes to unprecedented connectivity and technology acceleration, Molavi describes the five "everything" trends shaping the world and what they mean for the future of geopolitics and geoeconomics and the global landscape companies face today and in the future.

Shanghai, Mumbai, Dubai, or Good-Bye: Emerging Markets and Investment Destinations
China is set to overtake the United States as the world's largest economy by the year 2020--only to be replaced by India in 2050. The world's major companies are responding to these geo-economic shifts and setting sights eastward. Charting "The New Silk Road," Molavi explains what the rise of the East means for the markets and companies of the West.

The New Geo-Political Risk (and Opportunity) Map of the World
As the world's economic growth is driven by emerging markets, investment pours into countries and regions prone to higher levels of risk. Molavi describes what this new environment looks like and what it means for companies worldwide.
