Gregory R. Copley, AM, GCHT*, FRCGS, FSS, advises government and business leaders on geopolitical patterns and their impact on short-, medium- and long-term strategy and decision-making.
As President of the International Strategic Studies Association, based in Washington DC, he built up over a 45-year period a private geopolitical intelligence network providing exclusive consultancy to governments.
His 34 books include The Art of Victory and UnCivilization: Urban Geopolitics in a Time of Chaos. Most recently he has published Sovereignty in the 21st Century - and the Crisis for Identity, Cultures, Nation States, and Civilizations.
Long established as a keynote speaker at geopolitical conferences such as Davos (The World Economic Forum) and Bilderberg, he has also owned heavy engineering, chemical, airline, and technology firms, including a strong focus on addressing strategic water threats.
In particular, he became concerned with the decline of shipbuilding in Britain during the 1970s and 1980s, and set out, in 1987, to save from closure the Clyde, Scotland, shipbuilding facility, Ailsa Shipbuilders, becoming actively involved in the repair, refitting and construction of ships and large yachts.
In 1997, Mr Copley sold up his shipbuilding interests to focus more completely on his international relations activities.
