Dr Garten is a former Under-secretary of Commerce for international trade who served in the first Clinton Administration, promoting American business interests in Japan, Europe and the major emerging markets, including China, India, and Brazil. He was deeply involved in the conclusion of the Uruguay Round of trade negotiations and in helping the U.S. and China negotiate Beijing's entry into the WTO.  Today he is a professor of International Trade, Finance and Business Yale School of Management and also chairman of Garten Rothkopf, an international advisory firm he co-founded in 2005.

A former political and trade adviser and investment banker, Jeffrey Garten looks at rising global competition and how companies should react and adjust with an eye toward politics. With real-world experience, he focuses on the intersection of the economy and business, policy and politics, forces which no longer act independently but must be considered as a whole.

He is the author of several book: A Cold Peace: America, Japan, Germany and the Struggle for Supremacy (1992), The Big Ten: The Big Emerging Markets and How They Will Change Our Lives (1997), The Mind of the CEO (2001) and The Politics of Fortune: A New Agenda For Business Leaders (2002). From 1997 to 2005, he wrote a monthly column for Business Week. Various articles appear in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, the Harvard Business Review, and Foreign Affairs.

Jeffrey Garten delivers keynote addresses at major business conferences around the world and also presents at board level within international organisations. The areas he addresses include: What will the post-financial crisis global economy look like and what will it mean for you? What should we be worried about when it comes to sovereign debt? How will business leadership change in the 21st Century? Emerging Markets: how they will change the world? How will the global energy situation evolve? What potential economic shocks loom on the horizon? What is the best design for the highly adaptive organisation of the future?
