Ambassador for www.globalpovertyproject.com see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cs4vSgaRWUk from launch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YB4_K0iANxA (PS If you have an audience of 20+ that would like to spend an hour hearing how to eradicate extreme poverty just ping me or book http://www.globalpovertyproject.com/presentation )
