International business speaker, Anne Applebaum, is an award winning writer specialising in geo-politics.  She is a very popular presenter for prestigious corporate events in the UK and overseas both at online and live meetings.

Informed by her expertise in Europe and her years of international reporting, Anne shares perspectives on, and the far-reaching implications of current volatile global events. In addition as technology allows a new scale of media manipulation, she looks at the misinformation, propaganda, and criminal exploitation that influence international affairs.

Anne provides both background and the latest insights that are vital to understanding the risks and opportunities of the current world political and economic climate.

Her publications include Pulitzer Prize-winning Gulag: A History and Red Famine: Stalin’s War on Ukraine (winner of her second Duff Cooper Prize and the 28th Lionel Gelber Prize).  Her other books include Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe, 1944-1946, (Cundill prize winner) and Between East and West: Across the Borderlands of Europe.   In July 2020 Penguin published her new book ‘Twilight of Democracy: The Seductive Lure of Authoritarianism.”  The Financial Times named her latest book in their best political books of 2020.

For many years, Anne wrote a biweekly foreign affairs column for The Washington Post which is syndicated internationally.  She is now a staff writer at The Atlantic.  She is also a regular contributor to various publications.  These include Foreign Affairs, The Guardian, Slate magazine, The New Republic, Die Welt, The Spectator, The Independent, Cicero, Gazeta Wyborcza and The New York Review of Books.
