About the Speaker: Ambassador Matthew Gould

Matthew became the British Ambassador to Israel in September 2010 at the age of 39. He is the first Jewish Ambassador that Britain has sent to Israel.

Since arriving in Israel he has travelled extensively around the country, set up the UK-Israel Life Sciences Council, launched a major push to promote UK-Israel high-tech links, and hosted numerous top level British visitors. He is also learning Hebrew, slowly.

He previously served as Principal Private Secretary (Chief of Staff) to the Foreign Secretary (both David Miliband and William Hague). Before that he worked briefly as Private Secretary for Foreign Affairs for Tony Blair and then Gordon Brown in Downing Street. He was Robin Cook's speechwriter from 1997 to 1999. He has done four diplomatic postings overseas:

- In Washington he was Foreign Policy counsellor and representative of the Joint Intelligence Committee

- He was the Deputy Head of Mission at the British Embassy in Iran (2003-5), and spent five months as Acting Ambassador

- He spent a year in Pakistan just after 9/11 heading up the Embassy’s political section

- As the political officer at the British Embassy in Manila (1994-7), he was awarded the MBE for setting a programme of co-operation on tackling child abuse between British and Philippine police

Matthew attended Cambridge, spent a year teaching English in Zimbabwe, is an enthusiastic show jumper, skier and scuba diver, and owns a horse, stabled just outside of Netanya.  He lives in Ramat Gan with his wife Celia, daughter Rachel Elizabeth who was born in Tel Aviv, two labradors, and three cats.

About the Venue: Heseg House 

The HESEG Foundation provides full academic scholarships and living expenses to former Lone Soldiers from all over the world who have completed their service in the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) and have chosen to make Israel their home. These remarkable individuals leave their families and friends behind, and are driven by their ideals and commitment to Israel's security and future. HESEG (which means "achievement" in Hebrew) was established as a way to honor the contribution of Lone Soldiers to Israel, by providing them with an opportunity, through education and career development, to start a life in Israel.
