About Hagai M. Segal

Renowned for his ability to explain and contextualise constantly evolving global political events and crises, Hagai M. Segal is a leading authority on geopolitical issues, strategic risk, the Middle East and counter-terrorism.

At the centre of what Hagai does best is his unique ability to look beyond the obvious headlines or superficial news analyses, and pin-point pivotal connections between international scenarios as they unfold. He uses these valuable insights to deliver highly topical keynote speeches on an international stage, helping corporations, financial institutions, business groups, NGOs, police forces and security agencies make sense of the increasingly complicated and globalised world we live in. He also consults for and advises many of these organisations, helping them anticipate and mitigate the risks associated with current world affairs.

An academic with New York University in London, and a guest lecturer at universities across the globe, Hagai frequently contributes to the international media (including the BBC, ITV, The Guardian, The South China Morning Post, CNN, Reuters, Sky News and CNBC Europe).
