Sir Simon Mayall, Middle East Expert

Leading Authorities is now working exclusively with Sir Simon Mayall and we highly suggest him to speak at one of your events this year.

Sir Simon is a unique mix of diplomat, historian, and soldier (he is a three-star General) with 40 years' experience working in some of the most tumultuous environments imaginable. He was most recently the Defence Senior Adviser Middle East for the UK Government, and the Prime Minister’s Security Envoy to Iraq.

A true Middle East expert and Arabic speaker, Sir Simon is a student of crusading history and an expert in Jihad philosophy and Islam. Charismatic and witty, Sir Simon’s talks offer a fascinating perspective on highly topical geopolitical and security issues drawn from years spent in the Middle East. He discusses geopolitical risk, Middle East politics and history, and command, leadership, and management.
