NEW SPEAKER: Tim Butcher, best-selling author of 'Blood River' and 'The Trigger'
Chartwell are delighted to be working with Tim Butcher, explorer, journalist and best-selling author of “Blood River”, and “Chasing the Devil”. Tim’s latest book, “The Trigger” traces the steps of Gavrilo Princip, the teenage assassin who killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, setting the first world war in motion, and illuminates our understanding of one of the most misrepresented figures in modern history. Tim is an engaging and acclaimed speaker with tremendous passion for the complex and unheard stories of Africa and Europe. Watch Tim’s fascinating talk to the audience at 5×15, a popular storytelling night in central London, for a taste of his excellent speaking style.
Tim is available at events and conferences in UK, Europe, US and Asia via Chartwell – and with politics set to change so dramatically post-Brexit and a new US administration on the horizon, Tim’s understanding of history as means to chart the way ahead, not just for the modern nation, but for the wider world, is essential for clients and investors searching for intelligent insight.
If you’d like to hear more about Tim’s speaking topics or to book for your next event, please contact his agent Gus Allen or call +44 (0) 789 176 2743.
