Eamonn entertains and informs audiences with his lectures about life in some of the world’s most fascinating, little understood and sometimes dangerous places, most recently covering the revolution in Egypt.

His solo, camel-powered expeditions in the Sahara are another popular subject for Eamonn’s talks.

An Arabic speaker, Eamonn is in great demand with diverse groups due to his intimate understanding of the Middle East’s complex mix of cultures and traditions, his easy delivery and relaxed sense of humour. 

Eamonn’s experiences in the Greater Middle East result in his being uniquely placed to guide audiences through the region, whether on the ground or through his fascinating lectures.
