Nik Gowing

Nik Gowing was a main news presenter for the BBC’s international 24-hour news channel BBC World News 1996-2014. He has extensive reporting experience over three decades in diplomacy, defence and international security.

He co-authored initial findings of the “Thinking the Unthinkable” study. Based on sixty top level confidential interviews of corporate and public service leaders, plus the new generation of millennials, it reveals the factors which explain why so many have failed to identify what looms in the “new normal” since late 2013.

His peer-reviewed study at Oxford University “Skyful of Lies and Black Swans” predicts and identifies the new vulnerability, fragility and brittleness of institutional power in the new all-pervasive public information space.

Nik is a member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Geo-Economics. He was awarded Honorary Doctorates by Exeter University in 2012 and Bristol University in 2015 for both his ongoing cutting-edge analysis and distinguished career in international journalism.
