About Bob Geldof - "A hero of our time"

Sir Bob Geldof's achievements and accolades include:

Organiser of "Live Aid" one of the largest-scale charity fund raising initiatives of all time with an estimated 400 million viewers, across 60 countries, raising over $400 million dollars for famine relief.

Singer song-writer and front man of the Boomtown Rats responsible for a series of hits, including two UK number 1 singles, Geldof emerged as one of the most well known pop personalities of his era.

Awarded "Nobel Man of Peace" in 2005 and nominated six other times for Nobel prizes.

Organiser of Live 8 and the "make poverty history" campaign resulting in G8 leaders pledging to double 2004 levels of aid to poor nations from US$25 billion to US$50 billion by the year 2010. More than 1,000 musicians performed at the concerts, which were broadcast on 182 television networks and 2,000 radio networks.

Entrepreneur and founder of several successful companies.

Bob Geldof is incredibly well informed, not just about African famines and aid organizations, but also about London and Washington politics, global communications and business. His presentations are highly provocative and he uplifts and inspires audiences as he motivates through his own personal experiences and the lessons learned from Live Aid.
