03 Aug Dive industry staple Monty Halls joins GO Diving show lineup
With a brand new TV show about to hit our screen, Monty Halls confirmed as GO Diving show headliner. A former Royal Marines Officer who worked for Nelson Mandela during the peace process in the early 1990s, Monty left the forces to pursue a career in expeditions, travel journalism, and marine biology. Monty has since led teams in some of the most-challenging environments on Earth, presented numerous multi-award-winning documentaries, launched his own production company, and become a renowned inspirational speaker and writer. He has also developed a one-of-a-kind leadership and team building system for the professional and education sectors.
Monty is a Land Rover global ambassador, president of the Galapagos Conservation Trust, a Help for Heroes patron and numerous conservation organisations.
He is best known for his three BBC2 series Great Escapes, where he lived on the west coasts of Scotland and Ireland with his dog Reuben. He also presented the multi-award-winning series Great Barrier Reef. His next Channel Four series – My Family and the Galapagos – airs this Summer and features the whole Halls family in a poignant conservation mission to the Galapagos. He has written several books, and is a regular contributor to magazines and newspapers, many of them communicating his enthusiasm for the natural world.
