ABOUT OUR SPEAKER Colonel Richard Kemp has been actively involved in fighting terrorists around the globe for 35 years. He was Commander of British Forces in Afghanistan with responsibility for counter insurgency operations, disarmament and reintegration programs, development and training of the Afghan national security forces, reconstruction and defense diplomacy. He spent the last five years of his three decade military career at the UK Cabinet Office in Whitehall. He headed the Joint Intelligence Committee’s international and domestic terrorism team and the Iraq politics and security team, responsible for UK national intelligence assessments. He made many factfinding trips to Iraq, and in 2005 worked in Baghdad, Fallujah and northern Iraq on intelligence and counter terrorism for the US Ambassador. Previously, Colonel Kemp completed a total of 14 active duty tours as a military commander in Northern Ireland and in many global hotspots. Working alongside US forces, he took part in the liberation of Kuwait in 1991. He commanded British troops in the United Nations Protection Force in Bosnia and was the counter terrorism advisor to the Macedonian government. Colonel Kemp is Special Advisor on international terrorism to the House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, a commentator in the national and international print and broadcast media on defense and security, and best-selling author. He is a prolific international public speaker, closely follows Middle East conflict and politics, and makes frequent visits to the region. He addressed the United Nations Human Rights Council during their consideration of the Goldstone report into the Gaza conflict. He has sought to provide objective, expert commentary and analysis on that subject, as well as more widely on Israel’s security, including conflict with Hizballah and the Gaza “flotilla” incident.
