A visionary leader with a deep understanding of the economic and social challenges facing Latin America, President Vicente Fox is one of the world’s most important voices on the contemporary geopolitical landscape and the role of business in the developing world. When elected to the presidency of Mexico in 2000, he broke the stranglehold that the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party had held on the State for seven decades.
A charismatic reformer, he is credited as playing a vital role in Mexico’s democratization, and with strengthening the country’s economy.
Heralded for his insights into the current geopolitical landscape and leadership on issues related to immigration, Vicente Fox‘s book, ”Let’s Move On: Beyond Fear & False Prophets”, is a powerful political manifesto and rallying cry for those around the world to seek unity, not divisiveness. Written in Fox’s trademark no-nonsense style and offering his unique viewpoint as a former President of Mexico, avid historian, and true admirer of America’s constitutional ideas, Let’s Move On inspires people to resist the current spike in nationalism, and to return to the original ideals of the American Dream.
In-demand for his informative and engaging keynotes on U.S.-Mexico relations, immigration, global political trends and more, Fox has been sought-out to speak at TBWA/CHIAT/DAY’s Disruptor Series and engage in a Q&A at The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
In his keynote “Bringing the New Economy to Latin America”, President Fox discusses his businesses-centered approach to the development of Mexico, the future of North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and the opportunities available for international corporations in the region. A critic of the populist movements sweeping Central and South America, Vicente Fox offers an alternative that should be heard by everyone concerned with the future of the hemisphere.
In adittion he is a passionate humanitarian and advocate for social justice, since leaving office he has founded Centro Fox to promote compassionate global citizenship among the next generation.
He studied Business Administration at the Universidad Iberoamericana, and later he received a Top Management Diploma from the Harvard Business School.
