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.

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.
