David Cameron Keynote Speaker

The Right Honourable David Cameron, Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (2010-2016)

A Conversation with Mr. David Cameron

One of the most prominent global influencers of the early 21st Century, David Cameron served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 2010 to 2016. He offers lessons in leadership at an extraordinary and turbulent time in global affairs – not least on how he built economic strength; created inward investment across the UK and Europe against the backdrop of an emergent Russia and China; and navigated complex international security challenges. David Cameron will provide an unrivaled perspective on the future of the European Union and Britain’s place in the world following Brexit, and a unique insight on the rise of populist politicians and parties at a time of profound global change.
