He will briefly talk about the seismic change in security policy, sanctions actions, mass displacement and the view from Central Europe. It is not only the security issue, it is the severing of most ties with Russia, realigning business operations and supply chains and the essentially permanent changes that will shape the next generation at the very least.

Previous roles included serving as a member of the International Advisory Committee and a Senior Counselor at APCO Worldwide, Board member of the NASDAQ and Warsaw Stock Exchange listed CEDC, Country Officer for Poland, Czech Republic and Albania at US Treasury, an advisor to World Bank innovation programs, as well as being the principal of CGC Advisors for over eighteen years.
