About our speaker, Dr. Mark Elovitz:
World class expertise coupled with high class presentation combine to make Dr. Elovitz a first class world affairs commentator. For the past decade, Dr. E. has been presenting World Affairs Hot Spot presentations to international acclaim. Indeed, Singapore's Prestige Lifestyle Magazine (2012 Edition) featured Dr. Elovitz as a "seminal visionary." But, Dr. E. responds that he is simply blessed with strategic hindsight.
Prior to lecturing around the world, Dr. Elovitz served as a professor of law, a litigator, a government advisor and a U.S. Air Force Officer. As a Phi Beta Kappa scholar, he has earned four post-graduate degrees.
Dr. Elovitz has published hundreds of articles. His wide ranging subjects have addressed legal liability, biomedical ethics, American public policy, world affairs and international geopolitics. Some of Dr. Elovitz’s colorful commentaries include: “Whose Lunch Is The Dragon Eating?” “The Machievellian Mideast," "Bear Claws and Dragon Breadth,” “Will the Dragon Devour The Elephant Or Get Stomped?” “Iranian Doublespeak,” "The Thirst For Water Not Oil" and "Who's Getting (Or Not Getting) Fracked By Oil Prices?"
In addition, Dr. Elovitz has authored a monthly newspaper column which focused on the enhanced delivery of healthcare. He has also been the lively and often provocative anchor/commentator for a weekly World Affairs T.V. show.
Dr. Elovitz has lived in both the Mideast and Europe. He frequently visits sixteen Moslem countries as well as many South and Southeast Asian nations. As a United States Air Force Officer, he was liaison to American military stationed throughout Europe, England and Africa. In that capacity, he received the U.S.A.F. Commendation Medal for “Exemplary Pedagogic Skill.”
Additionally, Dr. Elovitz served in Washington during the Carter and Reagan Administrations as a government advisor on public policy. Dr. Elovitz has testified before the U.S. Congress’ Committee on Foreign Affairs. He has also been a participant in the U.S. Naval War College’s Current Strategy Forum. Currently, Dr. Elovitz is Director of the Centre For Strategic Geopolitics, a world affairs think tank.
Dr. Elovitz is recognized for his penetrating insights into and astute assessments of global affairs. His distinctive careers, extensive worldwide travels and diverse international contacts produce presentations with uncommon depth and unique understandings of world affairs. He deftly provides the unjaded content and context which are often sadly absent from the print and broadcast media. As a result, Dr. E’s dynamic presentations are colorful, illuminating and decidedly thought-provoking.
