  INTRODUCING KEYNOTE SPEAKER AMAR LATIF

Amar LatifAmar Latif is a broadcaster, entrepreneur and blind adventurer. He is the founder of Traveleyes, the world’s first tour operator specialising in supporting blind travellers, and has presented a number of documentaries including the BBC’s critically acclaimed Beyond Boundaries. After losing 95% of his eyesight by 18 years old, Amar challenged preconceptions to work his way up to Head of Commercial Finance for BT. Realising his passion lay in travel, he turned to face new goals and challenges. Amar has since trekked 220 miles through Central America and climbed a 1,500m active volcano. His company Traveleyes has helped create a more accessible world for people with visual impairments and has given millions of blind people the opportunity to explore and experience the world.
