The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce is hosting Dr. Ian Oxnevad at 2 p.m. Wednesday during a one-hour webinar on political and economic risk intelligence for businesses.

In this webinar, Oxnevad, a political and economic risk consultant whose research focuses on under-explored areas of scholarship, will explain how small businesses, as well as medium-sized enterprises and larger corporations, can adapt to crises and foresee changes in the political and economic landscape that can impact operations. 

Specializing in areas where security and the economy overlap, Oxnevad’s work examines issues of threat finance, terrorist financing, geo-economics, as well as broader geopolitical dynamics impacting the modern world.  

Oxnevad holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University of California, in addition to holding a bachelor’s degree in Arabic and a master’s degree in National Security Studies. He was a 2014 recipient of the U.S. Department of State’s Critical Language Scholarship for Turkish. 

Oxnevad regularly publishes peer-reviewed work on issues of security, political economy, and the Middle East. He values effective research in political-economy and security and strives to help businesses and the community navigate an increasingly complicated world. 

Oxnevad has an in-depth knowledge of the international economy, the financial system, political affairs within the U.S. and internationally. He has also written and consulted on issues of political economy and security. He assists clients in navigating and understanding the political and economic environment in which they operate or do business. 

In the webinar, Dr. Oxnevad will discuss what political-economic intelligence entails, what the difference is between thinking in a political-economy mindset and traditional business planning, and what threats there are for businesses from the surrounding environment and competitors.

He will also talk about how businesses should be adapting intelligence from the national security world, how political-economic intelligence works, and how business people should adapt proactive action based on intelligence and reasoning to maximize business success.
