Question about Possibility of Speech in Chicago

Jump to last reply

I will arrive in Chicago for almost two weeks on August 30, visiting my daughter and son-in-law and helping them settle in their new home.

In the meantime I would love to speak at an academic or NGO setting on any of the following subjects:

- Traveling to and In Turkey and/or Istanbul
- Politics of the Middle East. Current conditions and possible outlook
- Culture and Traditions of Anatolia
- Risk perception in Turkey and the CIS countries
- Insurance in Turkey, practice, market, underwriting, products, sales, reinsurance
- Risk management and ERM in Turkey
- Doing business in Turkey
- Secularism and Islamisation in Turkey
- Ottomanism

I teach a graduate course called "Risk" at Bosphorus University. I am a board member of the Turkish Insurance Practitioners association, I am a well-known speaker locally and have also spoken in Bermuda, Denver Colorado, Pakistan and Azerbaijan. (will be speaking in romania in October) I am prolific on Trip advisor and Fodors. Have published a book of philosophical essays, poetry and travel anectodes. I have been politically active in various NGOs in the past. My wife and I travel a great deal.

The idea to post here came when i remembered how i successfully managed to arrange for a jazz group from Pittsfield Mas, which posted on TA, to spend a free weekend in Nicea, turkey and play at our Summer township.

(please check my trip reports)

We know Chicago reasonably well, having visited at least 8-10 times in the last nine years. Will currently be close to N.State and Chestnut.

We like Korean, Indian, Chinese (no MSG) Thai, Steaks, Italian, Baby back ribs, seafood, but hopefully in smaller portions. Any recommendations and suggestions will be carefully followed and utilized and we will profusely thank you for them.
