Faraz’s excellent talk was much appreciated by all attendees and presented a unique perspective on Mongolia, given his work in the country and human rights in particular. His accessible narrative, delivered with the aplomb of a barrister, made it fascinating for all.
Royal Geographical Society, Hong Kong
Faraz captivated us all with his tales of crossing the Gobi Desert, leading us on a journey through one of the remotest corners of the world. He left us wanting to hear more and inspired us to take on our own adventures.
Oxford University Exploration Club
Faraz was a thoroughly captivating after-dinner speaker, transporting us from the refined setting of the Royal Automobile Club in London to his somewhat less comfortable 1,600km trek across the Gobi Desert and some of its rather special challenges.
