Terry Waite CBE

Terry Waite has led a remarkable life as a diplomat and a humanitarian.

A world-renowned agent of peace, he is a testament to the power and resilience of the human spirit. Long devoted to humanitarian causes, inter-cultural relations, and conflict resolution, Waite garnered international recognition in the 1980s when, serving as a special envoy to the Archbishop of Canterbury, he successfully negotiated the release of hostages in Iran and Libya.

In January 1987 Terry Waite was captured in Beirut whilst he was attempting to secure the release of hostages. He was kept in solitary confinement for four years and kept hostage in total for almost five years, 1763 days in all. His story was on the front pages around the world.

Terry’s audiences include business professionals, schools, universities, young people and the wider public. His honesty and straightforward manner endear him to all ages who may be surprised by his sense of humour.
