Next Speaker

Susan le Jeune d'Allegeershecque has been Britain's High Commissioner to Canada since August last year.

 Her 30-year diplomatic career has taken her to three continents, and exposed her to issues from the EU, to nuclear non-proliferation, anti-narcotics work and the corporate challenge of the Foreign Service's HR policies. She has lived through a coup in Venezuela, and the immediate aftermath of the Brexit vote in her last post as Ambassador to Austria and Permanent Representative to the UN organizations in Vienna.  A career highlight was taking part in the negotiations that led to the JCPOA nuclear deal with Iran.

Susan speaks French, German and Spanish and is married to Stéphane a former journalist and teacher. They have two grown-up sons.
