James Crabtree

I often take part in expert panel discussions and speeches and key-note presentation on topics from the future of globalisation to  on Chinese consumers and digital China. My speaking clients range from BNY Mellon and Barclays to the Young Presidents’ Organisation.


I am also an expert event chair, having helped to facilitate hundreds of public events around the world. I am able to moderate anything from international conferences to policy seminars and high-level workshops, and have helped to facilitate corporate events for companies like FT Live, Facebook and PwC, as well as major international organisations like the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank to global events like the BRICS summit.

Talk Topics

I can give keynote presentations on a range of topics, from critical trends in the global economy and the future of globalisation to geopolitical developments in Asia, as well as talks about the future of India, and my book The Billionaire Raj.


I am also able to talk about technology policy, including the technology scene in India and China, as well as infrastructure development, and in particular China’s Belt and Road initiative.


“James has spoken at a number of BNY Mellon’s conferences and events and has entertained and enthralled our audiences in equal measure. He delighted us with an exceptional keynote on globalization and delivers unique perspectives. His debating skills are phenomenal, and he’s easy to work with.”
