A member of the founding team of the Annual Herzliya Conference Series, Tommy managed the Conference series from 2007 through 2013 - a period during which the Herzliya Conference became considered one of the top international policy conferences.

In his areas of expertise, Tommy regularly advises Israeli authorities, international organizations, business, media and think-tanks.
