Campaigner and one time Boomtown Rat, Bob Geldof, was made a Fellow of Mansfield College Oxford in recognition of his incredible work in the humanitarian and poverty areas. Easily described as one of the world’s earliest social entrepreneurs, Geldof remains very active in areas around Africa and raising morning for the recent outbreak of Ebola.
After receiving this incredible honour Bob delivered the 13th Hans Lecture to a sold-out auditorium. It was acknowledged by Guy Hands as ‘the best and most stimulating lecture ever given in the series’.
Geldof is known as an impassioned speaker on the above subjects but is also someone who also speaks on business having created a number of successful radio stations and production companies.
