Dan Senor

Best-Selling Author of Start-Up Nation

An accomplished speaker—Senor gave more than a hundred press briefings while serving in Iraq—Senor comes to the podium to discuss the current, ever-changing global political situation—from the Middle East, to Russia, to China, and here at home. Because of Senor’s international policy expertise, specifically on Iraq and Iran, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, America’s renewed engagement with Europe, and the tension between Russia and the new Ukraine, he is uniquely positioned to speak to America’s strategy and role in the world and how the international community will react.
