Welcome to FACE - For A Conscious Experience.
We navigate the intricate web of global geopolitics for you.
Our expert analysis and strategic insights empower businesses and institutions to thrive in a rapidly changing geopolitical landscape.
Velina has emerged as the world’s foremost analyst of rapidly changing relationships among nations. Well before Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin publicly announced their partnership, Velina had already deemed it as the Dragonbear rival to US-led order. But just as the Dragonbear is now facing unanticipated economic limitations, she has been turning our attention to the newly crowned world’s most populated nation with the world’s highest economic growth rate, India, and to rapidly changing coalitions among other groups of nations which look to be forming alternative economic growth and security clusters.
I fullheartedly recommend Velina as the prime European source of geopolitical expertise in this new era of great power competition that play out in so many and so diverse domains across Eurasia and the wider world. Velina’s observations have often alerted me and kept me aware of what comes next. I never ignored her words
Analyst & reporting
“We are pleased to endorse & highly recommend Velina’s abilities in deciphering real world politics. She probably is the smartest and most hard-working analyst currently reporting on Russia, China and EU. Her quest to learn more and more and report is awe inspiring.”
Geopolitical Rise of India
“Velina last organized a course on the “Geopolitical Rise of India” for investors who found it tremendously useful. Velina’s expertise and communication approach are unmatched. She would be an asset to any organization. Highly recommend!”
New School of Multilateralism
Thank you very much for your contribution to our "New School of Multilateralism"! You spoke to the point and triggered a stimulating discussion - keep it up! As a thought leader at the New School of Multilateralism, Velina Tchakarova, an expert in security and defense policy, articulated provocative theses on the challenges of the Western-dominated multilateralism.
"Velina is a master at skillfully contextualizing the geopolitical tug of war that is happening right before our eyes. Her Techno-Geopolitics Workshop is not one to miss!"
“The geopolitics of technology has too long been neglected. I can think of few better than Velina Tchakarova better placed to explain the dangers, and opportunities, for companies in this new world of volatility and uncertainty.” -
"If you want to understand the world and how it works, as well as what you can change and what will change for you regardless, I highly recommend engaging with Velina and her team."
"Velina has made an important contribution to our book, “The Power of Future Machine”. This, along with her other insights into the new geopolitics positions her a fresh voice that looks beyond the traditional Western lens.”
Velina Tchakarova is one of the few hands-on analysts of international affairs having a genuine understanding of complex-systems science. She understands the future through early recognition of evolving geopolitical patterns, and is unafraid to contradict prevailing beliefs.
At FACE - For A Conscious Experience, we specialize in providing businesses and institutions with expert geopolitical consulting services. Our mission is to help you stay ahead of the curve, anticipating and planning for various scenarios that may impact your organization.
As an experienced speaker and recognized authority in geopolitics and geostrategy, I am committed to shedding light on the complex workings of geopolitics. I bring to the stage a wealth of knowledge gained from frequent participation in international conferences, expert workshops, and client meetings.
As an accomplished researcher in geopolitics, I actively contribute to national and international research projects and consortia, such as FFG in Austria and or Horizon Europe. My participation in such projects helps deepen my understanding of evolving geopolitical developments and continually broadens my expertise.
