As a campaigner for numerous causes throughout the world, Sir Bob Geldof is able to use his high profile to great effect. From African famines to business and global politics, Sir Bob has raised awareness of a wide range of issues. Rising to fame thanks to his music career with The Boomtown Rats, Sir Bob soon turned his attention to charity, organising Band Aid and the fundraising event Live Aid. In light of his charity work, he received a knighthood in 1986. Through his co-ownership of Planet 24, a production company that launched The Big Breakfast in 1992, Sir Bob became recognised as an astute businessman. Sir Bob has received a number of awards, including the 'Nobel Man of Peace Award', several Honorary Doctorates and a number of Nobel Peace Prize nominations.
Prior to Sir Bob Geldof's keynote, Chandler Comerford will share his leadership journey as a former US Navy SEAL officer, Chandler provides insight into what traits are required to succeed in the world's toughest military training program.
Chandler's message is that you are capable of more than you think resonates with all audiences.
