About the Speaker:

Emile Ghessen is a former Royal Marines Commando with 12 years of experience. He was deployed on three operational tours to Afghanistan and one in Iraq where he worked in military conflict zones. Rising through the ranks, Sergeant Ghessen developed excellent experience in leadership and management, and the skills to function in various arduous environments. After leaving the Royal Marines, he turned his unique skills to journalism, where he ventured to high conflict zones to report on current and impactful events. An experienced director and producer, he works in a wide range of sectors from digital to creative media using his vast knowledge of cameras, lighting, editing, drone pilot, animation, and writing content to capture events. As a passionate storyteller with years of experience public-speaking and independent documentary filmmaking around the world, Emile believes a camera is a more effective instrument for reaching and educating people than a rifle. Discover and support his current project.
