Kersti combines her excellent leadership qualities and outstanding knowledge of the European political scene to deliver impeccably informative and enlightening speeches.

In Detail

With a background in genetic engineering and economics, Kersti has been a Member of the Supervisory Board of the Estonian Genone Centre and the Council Chair of Tartu from 2012 to 2016. In 2021, she was appointed as the Global Advocate of the "Every Woman Every Child" strategy which focuses on the wellbeing of women, children and adolescents across the world. Over the years, Kersti has robustly defended the principles underlying our society: democracy, human rights, equal treatment and freedom of speech. One of the principles of her own time in office has been the one she set out upon her inauguration: "I am never silent when our security is in question, when our freedoms are at stake or when those weaker than us are treated unjustly."


Kersti Kaljulaid has become a sought-after speaker at high-level forums on digital, security and foreign-policy topics and more broadly for analysing and interpreting social change. She is a supporter of a non-restrictive legal space for the ongoing digitalisation of economies and governments and an active promoter of sustainability and halting climate change.
