MODERN DAY LAWRENCE OF ARABIA TO SPEAK IN HERTS

- Wednesday, 23rd March 2011

 

Rory Stewart MP OBE, who has been invited by Peter Lilley, is famous for walking across Afghanistan staying with local villagers in the wake of the coalition invasion and his subsequent period acting as governor of an Iraqi province.  He has also been hailed as the best new parliamentary orator, following his election as an MP last year.   

Peter Lilley said: “I am pleased to have the opportunity to welcome Rory who brings to Parliament an amazing breadth of experience and talent. He will certainly be a fascinating key-note speaker at our Annual Dinner at the Mid Herts Golf Club on Friday.”

Rory Stewart has served in the British Army, the British Foreign Service as a diplomat, founded the Turquoise Mountain Foundation to preserve Afghan cultural treasures and is author of “The Places in Between” and “The Prince of the Marshes”.
