The Middle East is a multi-dimensional game of chess.
What happens in one place impacts what happens in another.
And what happens in the Middle East does not stay in the Middle East.


A tailor-made Interactive lecture followed by an open discussion (Q&A) with the participants.
Each Briefing is constantly updated to reflect the relevant current affairs of the specific topic.
Our Briefings generally run about 1 to 1 and 1/2 hours.
They can be done anywhere in the world or online.
Over breakfast, coffee, lunch, dinner, a drink - or as a keynote lecture.
Appropriate for Individuals and groups, from high schools students to global leaders.
