Ambassador Laurence Pope (Ret.)
Keynote Speaker For Your Next Meeting
Ambassador Laurence Pope Ret served in the foreign service and diplomatic corps for thirty one years, in one the most important, and difficult, regions in the world – the Middle East, as well as North Africa, and did so during some of more challenging periods of contemporary history. Being a diplomat is not all “cocktail parties and formal dinners”, but rather about dealing with the critical issues of our national security, and international relations. His presentation has humorous stories from his vast experiences, but also deadly serious ones which were critical to national and world security. Among the topics Larry speaks about are International Affairs, Diplomacy, Public Policy, National Security, Middle East Policy, The Arab Spring.
