Thanks for all the nice comments and questions yesterday when I read extracts from Irish Diaries. Published by Dublin based Lilliput Press. Link in Bio if you want to know more. Of my 17 books it is one of my faves!! ...

Please join me instagram live 1230. I am going to do a reading from my Irish Diaries (April 9/10 1998, the day the Good Friday Agreement came together - link in bio) - and take questions. It is not good for my blood pressure thinking about the damage being done by this wretched government and the crooks or hardliners who want to exploit what is happening. But perhaps venting while reminding people of some of the fundamental issues will do me some good, and hopefully others too. ...

To inquire, contact speaker@alastaircampbell.org

Alastair Campbell is a sought after public speaker in Britain and abroad. Drawing on his experience of ten years alongside Tony Blair, and his considerable understanding of the modern media, he specialises in strategy, making change, dealing with the media and crisis management – often at the same time.

Dozens of testimonials from a wide variety of businesses, organisations and conference organisers have paid tribute to his skills as an engaging and innovative speaker able to apply his insights and experience to the work of others with wit and passion. He liaises directly with event organisers in advance so as to tailor a presentation to their specific needs. Often controversial, and always prepared to speak his mind, he is willing, indeed keen, to make a question and answer session part of his presentations.

He is towards the top end of the fee scale for paid public speaking engagements. But he speaks regularly, pro bono, for charitable, political and educational events.
