During this live event, you will be hearing from Mr. Garry Kasparov, former World Chess Champion and outspoken critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Mr. Kasparov will be speaking from 11:30 to 1:30 on Saturday, November 15, 2014, at the Iliff School of Theology’s Great Hall. Mr. Kasparov is known across the globe for his concerns about freedom and human rights in Russia. His brief trip to America in November includes keynote speaking engagements in New York (to honor the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall) and at the Business Alliance’s November 14th Wyoming Forum in Cheyenne.
Kasparov will be discussing his thoughts on how global finance, communications and trade influence political and economic boundaries. He will also contemplate how non-state organizations such as ISIS threaten the current world order, juxtaposed with the Russian state’s economic threats against Europe, which risk economic and political stability in the region.
