We're extremely delighted and honoured to announce our guest speaker for the closing ceremony:
Sir Stewart Eldon, KCMG, OBE.
Sir Stewart is a distinguished British diplomat with over 30 years in the diplomatic service. His posts included:
― UK's Permanent Representative to NATO
― UK Deputy Representative to the UN
― British Ambassador to Ireland
Sir Stewart Eldon is a fantastic speaker to close off UBIMUN 2017 with words of insight on global politics and to present delegates with their awards.
You can read more about him including his role as Deputy Crisis Manager during the Gulf War at www.stewarteldon.com
We're also pleased to introduce Professor Kerry Brown
from King's College, London as our guest speaker for the opening ceremony.
Professor Brown is a lecturer in Chinese Studies and heads the Lau China Institute at KCL. He previously worked at Chatham House, the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and as First Secretary at the British Embassy in Beijing.
Author of numerous books on China, he is certainly an expert on the topic and will no doubt be able to offer insight into our UNSC topic: the situation in the South China Sea.
We're excited to be able to welcome Professor Brown to UBIMUN 2017 and hope his appearance will mark the start of a very successful conference!
