Niall Ferguson

Motivational Speaker Niall Ferguson
  • Economic historian and Professor of History at Harvard University.
  • Published expert on geopolitics and specifically the costs and benefits of economic globalisation which includes expansion of the European Union.
  • A strong advocate of the need for radical reform of financial institutions and the cross over between politics and economics.

Niall Ferguson is one of the world’s most influential economic historians. He is a Professor of History at Harvard, a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution and a Fellow of Jesus College, at Oxford. He has held the positions of Head of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School and been an adviser on Senator John McCains Presidential election campaign.

Many of the  themes Niall Ferguson has explored relate to the present day. In both his publications and as an authoritative conference speaker he explores the costs and benefits of economic globalisation, the connections between finance and politics, and the strengths and limitations of America’s power.

In the wake of the worldwide financial crisis, Niall Ferguson’s presentations argue the case for radical institutional reforms. He has been fiercely critical of the responsibility and care of duty financial institutions should take.

Glasgow born, Niall Ferguson has been described as the greatest British historian of his generation. Time magazine have labelled him as one of the Top 100 most influential people in the world. Niall comments regularly on television and in the press. His next publication will be based on the life of esteemed US diplomat Dr. Henry Kissenger.

Niall has published fourteen major titles of which three have been televised; ‘The Ascent of Money’ which he also presented in, won an Emmy Award in 2009 for Best TV documentary.
