John Hulsman's Biography

Dr. John C. Hulsman is President and Managing Partner of John C. Hulsman Enterprises, a prominent global political risk consulting firm. Dr. Hulsman is a Life Member of the US Council on Foreign Relations, the pre-eminent US foreign policy institution.

John is also the widely-read Senior Columnist for City AM, the newspaper of the city of London, writing prolifically on foreign affairs and political risk.  His articles can be found here. In addition, John is a regular columnist for Arab News in Riyadh, Aspenia Online in Rome, The Hill in Washington and ORF in New Delhi. The author of all or part of 14 books, Hulsman has given over 1550 interviews, written over 950 articles, prepared over 1340 briefings, and delivered more than 560 speeches on global political risk and foreign policy for blue chip corporations and governments around the world.

John Hulsman has made a name for himself as an uncannily accurate predictor of global geopolitical risk in our new multipolar era, including almost uniquely calling the UK’s Brexit result and the 2020 US election result, in addition to 18 of his firm’s past 20 major political risk predictions.

An outstanding and practised speaker, John has given more than 1,340 high-level briefings at the invitation of the CIA, the House International Relations Committee, the National Security Council, the Pentagon, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, the US Department of State, and governments around the world.

Building on his Washington DC experience, he is a cutting-edge facilitator of war games, a powerful analytical tool. These are simulated exercises played by well-briefed individuals to test assumptions and illuminate a range of likely foreign policy outcomes that will constitute the real-world conditions that must be mastered in the times ahead. John has designed, played and facilitated over 100 war games for blue chip private sector banking and hedge fund clients as well as governments around the world.
