Sir Bob Geldof is not just well informed about African famines and aid organisations, but also about British and American politics, global communications and business issues.
He is, in his own words, an unreasonable pain in the arse. This is a good thing, he says, because it's a prerequisite for any true entrepreneur. As the Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw once said: "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world, while the unreasonable man persists in adapting the world to him”.
This, in essence, is the entrepreneurial method: solve a problem you find intolerable, and you will probably end up with a product or service that others are willing to pay for. Apply the same principle to social problems and, potentially, you can save the world...

We ask our delegates to complete evaluation forms on the speakers etc. Bob Geldof received the best marks in the history of our event (higher than Bill Clinton!). The top mark is 5 but people were crossing that out and putting a 6 or even a 10! Great message, great delivery, fully deserved his standing ovation! Thanks to you for making sure it worked and to Bob for taking time out from G8. Awesome!
An outstanding speaker. The most powerful messaging I have ever heard.
Sir Bob Geldof was nothing less than absolutely outstanding. Three standing ovations says a lot!
The best speaker we have ever had in 25 years of holding events.
