Monty Halls is a well known BBC 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.
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.
For Monty’s most recent television series – 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 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.
