A Global Update
Global times demand global perspective. As someone who has lived in and reported from North America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe, Katty Kay’s observations and insights reflect that rich global experience. In a world changing at lightning speed, Katty looks deep into the headlines from around the world to provide context and understanding. So many big issues to be dealt with simultaneously: Brexit and the disruption in the EU, trade disputes, immigration issues, terrorism, political isolationism, and the potential for political and economic tensions to erupt into armed conflict at any moment. Understanding the complex issues at play requires a constant refresh of perspective. It’s a world where big challenges abound and the landscape changes on a daily basis – but where is it headed? Katty asks that question of the political and business leaders she speaks to every day as anchor for BBC World News America. She brings those insights to her audience in this talk.
