An Evening with Margaret MacMillan

Our succinct perspective on key investment and wealth-related issues.

Looking to History to Understand the World Today

Ted Conrod, President at Focus, recently hosted an exciting evening with one of Canada’s preeminent historians and an acclaimed author, Margaret MacMillan. Unquestionably, with conflicts raging in Europe and the Middle East and 70 nations (representing over half the global population) set to hold elections, 2024 promises to be a year of heightened geopolitical tension. In front of over 100 guests at the Four Seasons Hotel, Margaret captivated the audience with her thoughtful insights on geopolitical issues across the globe, and how lessons from history can be used to prepare for the future.

Thank you to everyone who attended the event. We hope you enjoyed the engaging “journey”—

across the globe and throughout history—that has offered insight into today’s tumultuous world.
