At the Podium

As a leading authority on foreign policy in Israel and the Middle East, Ambassador Prosor draws from his experience at the UN to offer audiences a unique vantage point for understanding global politics and economic affairs: from volatility in Saudi Arabia to fluctuating oil prices; from the signing of the nuclear deal with Iran to continued violence in Syria; and from the clash between Shi’ites and Sunnis to tectonic shifts that are destabilizing the Middle East. With a trademark blend of wit and wisdom, Prosor takes listeners on a fascinating journey behind the scenes of international policymaking.

Ambassador Prosor addresses the enormous political, military, economic and cultural challenges Israel faces on the front lines of both the international and the national arenas. He tells the astonishing story of Israel’s transformation from the “Jaffa Oranges Nation” to the “Start-up Nation” and reveals the “secret ingredients” that enabled this remarkable revolution of innovation and entrepreneurship.

Prosor’s analyses enable businesses and NGO’s to understand how global geopolitical factors impact international business and national economies. His insights, rooted in his vast experience and knowledge, are invaluable for identifying financial and security risk factors in organizations’ decision-making processes.

Ambassador Prosor was warm and engaging. He spoke from the heart and without notes. Our successful evening reflected his thoughtful presentation.
