In Detail

Now a truly global figure, his career began in journalism before forming the rock band Boomtown Rats. The course of his work changed when he set about the huge challenge of arranging Live Aid. In 2004 he returned to Ethiopia with UNICEF reviving media and public interest in the country's economic state. He was honoured with the 2005 Nobel Man Of Peace Award and the MTV Free Your Mind Award which he received at the European Music Awards. He was also a Nobel Prize Nominee in 2005 and was recognized by Time Magazine as one of the 2005 European Hero's. Currently, he is involved in the Make Poverty History Campaign.


The breadth and depth of his knowledge and experience is unique and hard to replicate. He is highly entertaining and has great insight into the socio-political arena as well as leadership, communications, marketing in the global village, motivation and self-development.
