Celebrated by many as “Mayor of the World,” Rudy Giuliani provides a resolute voice in tackling the toughest domestic and international issues of our time—from long-standing global conflicts to terrorism and the new reality of cyber warfare, to political leadership issues at home, including insights on future elections.
Acclaimed as one of the most effective chief executives in modern American history for his leadership and bravery during 9-11, Giuliani was named TIME magazine’s Person of the Year, was given an honorary knighthood by the Queen of England and was awarded the Ronald Reagan Presidential Freedom Award.
Never one to shy away from a battle, Giuliani almost single-handedly took on organized and white-collar crime in New York with a remarkable record of 4,000 convictions—one that very few attorneys can match. Ushering in a new era of fiscal responsibility and broad-based growth, he turned an inherited $2.3 billion budget deficit into a multibillion-dollar surplus and added a record 450,000 new private sector jobs.
After his conference, Rudolph W. Giuliani and the Honourable Michael M. Fortier, Vice-Chairman of the Board of RBC Capital Markets and former Minister of Public Works and Government Services Canada, will discuss the challenges facing the world’s major cities and their leaders for the next decade.
