Monty Halls is a well known television presenter and has worked for over a two decades in partnership with organisations large and small as a keynote speaker of the highest quality.
As an ex-Royal Marines Officer, a broadcaster, explorer and writer, Monty Halls has led international teams through some of the most demanding environments on earth.
He has worked for Nelson Mandela as part of the peace process in South Africa, was awarded the Bish Medal for services to exploration, and for the last decade has specialised in delivering thought-provoking and highly amusing presentations about performing under stress.
“Monty is the highest scoring keynote speaker we’ve ever had – Bear Grylls was a close second!”
In 2009, Monty’s television series ‘Monty Halls Great Escape‘ aired on BBC 2. He lived on the West Coast of Scotland in a tiny bothy on a beach for six months, following in the footsteps of his hero Gavin Maxwell.
He returned in early 2010 from a further six months as a nature ranger in the Outer Hebrides, an experience recorded for the second series on BBC2 called ‘Monty Halls Great Hebridean Escape‘ which was aired in May of 2010. This was followed in 2011 with ‘Monty Halls’ Great Irish Escape’.
After five solid years on the road filming series for BBC2, and after the success of ‘Fisherman’s Apprentice‘ in early 2012, Monty settled in Dartmouth, Devon to set up his own eco-tourism business.
The trials and tribulations of establishing and running this enterprise have been well chronicled in his Mail Weekend Magazine column, which now has something of a cult following amongst the 6 million readers of the magazine.
In ‘Monty Hall Dive Mysteries’, he was on a quest to answer some of the most enduring mysteries beneath the sea. He recruited an elite team of divers – the very best deep water cameramen, technicians, and explorers – who pushed the limits of modern technology and explored the twilight zone of deep wrecks, caverns and undersea ruins.
Monty’s new series ‘My Family and the Galapagos‘ follows the Halls family during their time living in the Galapagos in 2017. It looks at the challenges of business and community in the most iconic archipelago on earth.
Monty has established a reputation as one of the most entertaining and thought-provoking speakers in the UK.
His talks are based on his experiences as a Royal Marines Officer, as an expedition leader, working with natural history film crews, and as a tv presenter and broadcaster. The predominant themes are the adventures and mis-haps of the individuals and groups he has worked with, allowing pertinent team building and leadership messages to be incorporated into his presentations as required.
As a keynote speaker, Monty’s topics include:
- Team Dynamics
- Human Performance
- Maintaining the Aim in the Most Demanding of Circumstances
- Operating in Ever Changing Environments.
New for 2018:
Based on his Channel 4 series – ‘My Family and the Galapagos‘ Monty’s new talk offers a chance for your organisation or event to address one of the key issues facing any business. How to evolve, adapt, and interact in a positive way with a rapidly changing economic landscape.
With Brexit, potential trade wars, and tectonic change on the horizon, how do you stay focused, motivated, and yet maintain readiness to make the most of new opportunities as they emerge.
For twenty years Monty has been one of the most popular and engaging speakers in the UK. With the context of this new series, filmed in the home of evolutionary science, he explores how we must all evolve and adapt to not only survive, but also to prosper while others fall by the wayside.
