How he presents

Sir Alan Duncan is a truly authoritative speaker with a wealth of hands-on experience. He makes a powerful impact on audiences with his inspiring mix of cutting-edge ideas and common-sense insights.

In Detail

As Boris Johnson's deputy in the Foreign Office, Sir Alan sat at the very midst of everything in government that took place between the EU referendum and the UK's eventual exit from the EU. For the past thirty years, he has been at the centre of British political life. He has been at the heart of every Conservative Party leadership race since John Major in 1990, spearheading William Hague's 1997 Conservative leadership campaign, and holding positions such as Shadow Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, and Shadow Minister for Justice. In David Cameron's government, he held the role of Minister of State for International Development (2010-2014). He then went on to become the government's Special Envoy to Yemen (2014- 2016), before concluding his parliamentary career as Minister of State for Europe and the Americas.


Sir Alan Duncan is in that rare category of people who have combined a political career at the heart of government with real world experience of business. He delivers illuminating opinions that provoke debate and consideration with an accent on the future.
