Midge Ure needs little introduction. During the course of his career, he has won a host of awards, including Ivor Novello, Grammy and BASCAP awards, and has produced a number of gold and platinum-selling records.
Along with Sir Bob Geldof, Ure wrote the iconic and timeless Christmas song, ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ in 1984, and produced the record in West London’s SARM Studios along with the 36 artists collectively known as Band Aid.
The song was the music industry’s heartfelt and eloquent contribution to the call for aid famine-stricken Ethiopia, and eventually led to Live Aid in 1986 – a global concert that spoke for a whole generation.
Still a Band Aid Trustee, Sir Bob has said that without Ure’s enthusiasm and sketch for the single, neither Band Aid nor Live Aid could have happened. As a result, he was awarded an OBE for services to music and charity
Midge is a fascinating, insightful speaker and a truly extraordinary entertainer.
Midge is internationally recognised as an authority on music, communications, humanitarian issues, philanthropy, poverty, human rights and Africa. He speaks on leadership, motivation, music and media. In addition he is a business entrepreneur and has extensive knowledge of Brexit and UK Politics.
