Garry Kasparov has been the highest-rated chess player in the world for over twenty years and is widely considered the greatest chess player that ever lived.

As a master of strategy, today he applies the insights and unique perspective from his extraordinary chess career to the issues of leadership, logical thinking, strategy, and success to the speakers circuit and Russian politics.

Known as an extremely intuitive chess player, Kasparov also emphasizes intuition's role in achieving one's full potential as an individual and achieving superior performance as the leader of a group or organization. His battles with the super computer "Deep Blue" were worldwide, headline news and he has been at the forefront of innovation in chess for over twenty years. He has been at the cutting-edge of research and the battles between humans and computers from as far back as 1989.

His global reach is fed by a steady stream of keynote speaking engagements around the world. His speech topics vary from country to country, but he is never far from what he knows best - strategy and logical thinking. He takes his listeners into the world of calculus, deep thought, the analytical mind, and what constitutes intelligence without reducing the answer to plain black and white. More importantly, Kasparov speeches are customized for every corporation or language group to include local facts and items of interest.

Mr. Kasparov is the founder and inspiration behind the Kasparov Chess Foundation, whose mission is to introduce chess into the educational system worldwide. He is a regular contributor to the editorial page of the "Wall Street Journal" and most recently Volume V (Karpov), of his best-selling series of books "My Great Predecessors" was released. Over 100,000 hardcover copies of the series in several languages have been sold - a record for chess. In 2007 his first mainstream book "How Life Imitates Chess" will be released.

Mr. Kasparov remains the highest-rated player in the history of chess and the only icon in a game of over 100 million players.

On Friday, 11th March, 2005 Kasparov announced his retirement from competitive chess after twenty years as the Number One Ranked Player in the World.

Kasparov is busy campaigning throughout the length and breadth of Russia and, as he explains, "We are not fighting to win elections - we are fighting to have elections. The goal is to bring all opposition groups into a broad coalition to return Russia to the path of democracy."  Russia today is dangerously sliding into a corrupt dictatorship and despite the high price of oil, most of the population has little to show for it.

In December 2004, Garry Kasparov was elected Co-Chairman of the ALL RUSSIA CIVIL CONGRESS and in May of 2006 he became Chairman of the UNITED CIVIL FRONT OF RUSSIA.
