“The Blind Guy Who Wants to Show You the World”
Amar Latif is a blind international motivational speaker, television personality, entrepreneur, and world traveller. He is the founder of Traveleyes, a world unique and award-winning travel company specialising in holidays for both blind and sighted travellers. In 2004, Amar set out to explore the world, but was rejected from mainstream travel companies. Determined to travel the world as an independent blind person, and empower thousands of other blind travellers to do the same, Amar left his successful career as an accountant at BT, and created an innovative way for blind & sighted travellers to explore the world together – sighted travellers act as they eyes for blind travellers, describing the sights as they travel together, and in return, travel for a reduced price. The worldwide market leaders in specialist group travel for blind and sighted travellers, Traveleyes now offers over 70 destinations a year. An accomplished and sought after international motivational speaker, Amar has delivered worldwide speeches covering a wide range of topics, including inspiration, positivity, entrepreneurship and inclusivity. Amar has worked on numerous television programmes with the BBC and Channel 4 as a presenter and director, including: How to Get Fit Fast, Thrifty Ways to… Summer Holiday, The Last Leg Goes Down Under, Beyond Boundaries and Sightseeing Blind.
