Their opinion on Olivier Guitta, GlobalStrat's CEO

I have been liaising with Olivier for over a year, discussing his analysis of various regions of interest. I have found his knowledge of these regions second to none, and the work product he shared extremely well researched and of the highest professional quality. Olivier is an energetic analyst with a wealth of knowledge and local contacts. I am always impressed with his reports, easy reads, coupled with accurate representation of the local situation.
— Paul Barker, Regional Security Advisor - EEMEA at Chevron Corporation
Olivier is a keen observer and skilled analyst of terrorism, especially as it involves Islamist groups. I post his insights and analysis as resources on a Web site that is read exclusively by the most senior private and public sector security executives across the globe—a very discriminating group, indeed.
— Michael Gips, ASIS Publishing Director
Olivier brings a wealth of insights to the study of terrorism and counterterrorism. His unique ability to navigate multiple cultural contexts in Europe and elsewhere makes him an invaluable resource in understanding the nuances and underlying sources of today’s homegrown terrorist threat
— James Forest, Professor & Director of Security Studies, University of Massachusetts Lowell
Olivier Guitta is a well-informed geopolitical security expert and at ECSA we where most happy to have him present his insights at one of our yearly meetings. He also periodically publishes most interesting reviews on the situation in the Middle East and Africa.

— James M. Dorsey, Senior Fellow at S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies
Olivier delivers concise, thought-provoking insights across a spectrum of global security risk issues. Each time Olivier pens a new article, its the top of my reading list.
— Karl Mattson, Senior Vice President, Technology Risk at PNC
I have had the pleasure to work with Olivier in the past and was impressed by his deep level of knowledge and understanding of geopolitical security and risk issues. I was later even more impressed by his ability to interpret and explain to less-initiated audiences the complexities of the world that we live in and have been ever since a loyal follower of Olivier’s frequent TV interviews and print articles. A true expert with few peers.
