Jamie's fabulous presentation on genetic engineering - past, present, and future -- was at once thought-provoking, inspiring, frightening and enlightening. It was simply the best presentation I ever have heard in all my 71 years. I look forward to the publication of Hacking Darwin and can't wait to get my hands on it.
International Affairs & Biotechnology Expert, Atlantic Council Senior Fellow, Co-Chair of Partnership for a Secure America and Keynote Speaker
Jamie is a fantastic authority and resource on all things related to China. I hired Jamie as a panelist and keynote speaker in 2016 after hearing Jamie speak at an Atlantic Council event. He was extremely knowledgeable, flexible and a pleasure to work with on our event programming. I was particularly impressed by Jamie's presence and command of the topics and his ability to engage with the audience in a meaningful way
Jamie's talk on 'Donald Trump and the Changing Geopolitics of Asia' was an absolute tour de force that blew away our members. Jamie took what could have been a narrowly focused topic and put it in a far broader historical and political context that helped the audience to see the big picture of U.S.-China relations and the dynamics shaping it
Thank you Jamie for today's compelling discussion of The End of Sex For Human Reproduction for Schwartz Bioethics Rounds at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. Your insights into the intersection of assisted reproductive medicine, genomics, stem cell tech and human genetic engineering was truly compelling and generated a tremendous amount of interest and engagement from our diverse group of healthcare providers
Jamie spoke to the senior most lay leadership of our non-partisan, nonprofit organization on U.S. foreign policy and, particularly, as it relates to the Asia Pacific region--a topic that is difficult to address, both because it is inherently complex and politically sensitive. Jamie overcame these challenges and adeptly and tactfully addressed the issues, giving historical context and his own perspective in a clear and effective manner. His breadth of knowledge is impressive
Jamie Metzl spoke to a captivated audience about a fascinating and complicated subject. Bio-engineering and its impact upon the future of mankind was the topic Dr. Metzl aptly articulated in an enthralling yet relatable style. From the start, he built a genuine rapport with the audience as he communicated so that each person understood as clearly as possible the subject matter. Jamie's presentation was amazingly fluid and perfectly paced as he spoke effortlessly without notes or prompts
IVY hosts dozens of incredible lectures led by leading minds around the country each year, but I've never seen our members as engaged with the speaker and the subject matter as they were with Dr. Metzl. He captivated the room with the intricacies of the future of science and humanity. After the lecture members lingered for more than two hours discussing the implications of the future of genetic engineering and debating what, if anything, should be done about it.
