Turqoise Mountain - Rory Stewart


I attended a talk he gave about his charity - he has now moved to Harvard to be a Professor so caught him just in time
Rory is without doubt one of the leading commentators on rebuilding efforts in Afghanistan and for anyone out on TELIC / 2 his book "Occupational Hazards" is a compelling account of the realities faced in Southern Iraq during that period.

Turquoise Mountain has been hugely successful in applying commonsense thinking to the problems faced and is fast becoming the blueprint for other NGO's to follow. This is in no small part due to Rory's service with the Black Watch and the close connections / good relationships that he has across the CIMIC spectrum.

You can buy me a beer for that Rory! :)
