Upcoming WOW Event

Featured Guest

Nigel Farage

Please note that this is an evening event.

Mr. Nigel Farage is an internationally recognized British politician who co-founded and led the UK Independence Party (UKIP) from 2006 to 2016. As the leader of the Brexit party from 2019 to 2021, Mr. Farage accomplished what many said was impossible: he led the fight to withdraw the UK from the European Union.

Mr. Farage saw the dangers ahead as the European Union increasingly exerted its power and dominance over the member countries. In June 2016, British voters agreed to Brexit. Notably, the city of London bankers with so many elite global financial ties were strongly against the UK leaving the EU. The financial newspapers and mainstream press were relentlessly against leaving, yet at the same time, quiet conversations with working people in London (like taxi drivers and hotel employees) made obvious the breadth of support for Brexit. Also, outside London at the same time, there was enormous support and agreement that it was time to leave, and that is what they called the movement. All over the hillsides of England were huge signs proclaiming simply “LEAVE.”

In June 2016, British voters did vote to leave the EU. Even with that decision made, it fell to the political machinery of the Prime Minister to undertake the negotiations of the UK withdrawal. This remarkable political accomplishment earns Mr. Farage an important role in future history books, and he continues to be one of the most influential and inspiring figures in British politics today.

Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Britain now has a brand new Prime Minister as well as a new King. The European Union appears to be collapsing, and there are global financial and supply hardships everywhere. We are in historic times.

We have a unique opportunity to hear from Mr. Farage as he begins what may be the most demanding era yet of his career. Please arrange your tickets early.

The Registration Deadline is Monday, October 31, 2022 for Early Bird Pricing.
