If you have missed the global nature of the main summit, this is your opportunity to catch up on what is going on around the world from the best.

In his position, Jeremy is inundated with information from the world’s top analysts, on everything from politics to petrol. Jeremy’s challenge is consolidating all this information and bringing it to you in an understandable format that you will find interesting and informative, and he manages to do just that.
