Bob Geldof KBE rose to prominence as the lead singer of the of the Irish rock band The Boomtown Rats in the late 1970’s and 1980’s. However, Bob is now well known for his activism for anti-poverty and famine. Bob founded Band Aid, a supergroup of the world’s most influential artists, who went onto to create one of the best-selling singles of all time Do They Know It’s Christmas?. As a political speaker, Bob takes lessons learned from all aspects of his life and recounts key political moments that helped him to make such a difference.
Bob organised the charity super concerts Live Aid and Live 8, his continuous efforts to better the lives of the poorest people in the world has led to him being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize and is a recipient of the Man of Peace title. Bob’s keynote and after dinner speeches provide advice on how to lead from the front, overcome adversity and highlight that people should be defined by what they do, rather than what they say.
Aside from his political campaigning and charity work, Bob has also run a successful media empire, Planet 24. The company broadcasted 600 hours of television and radio media per annum, before being merged with Carlton Communications on 1999. Geldof is now a co-owner of the production company Ten Alps, the companies output includes Schoolsworld, that hosts 3500 videos from the former government TV scheme Teachers TV.
As comfortable in front of balance sheets and business leaders as he is with Prime Ministers and Presidents, Bob’s relaxed yet meaningful delivery of after dinner and keynote speeches make him one of the best political speakers, inspiring and motivating audiences to make a difference in everyday life, no matter how small. His experience of performing in front of billions of people makes him an ideal choice for a conference or event host.
