What he offers you

One of Britain's most influential and admired commentators, Timothy offers audiences his expert views on exactly why the United States can never rule the world on its own, why the new, enlarged Europe can only realise its aspirations in a larger, transatlantic community and why the conflicts in the Middle East and the rise of Asia can only be addressed by a wider community of democracies. Sweeping historical insight related in his own conversational style, help his incisive commentary on world affairs stand apart from its competitors.

How he presents

A compelling and enlightening speaker, few historians match Timothy Garton Ash for his combination of clarity and reportorial brilliance. His superlative presentations defy conventional wisdom and challenge contemporary thinking.
