Finding the right facilitator for your conference can make all the difference. The best conference facilitators really do their research, get to grips with your industry, ask the right questions, ensure your audience is constantly engaged, keep things running to a clip – and they’re always ready to think on their feet if the moment calls for it!

We work with many wonderful conference facilitators and I’ve put some of my favourites below:

Kirsty Wark

Newsnight, The Reunion

Kirsty’s TV presenting credits extend from hard news and arts review to a food quiz and documentaries on womanhood and what makes modern Scotland. She’s come close to the Celebrity MasterChef title, has appeared on Have I Got News For You, and is one of Scotland’s leading independent programme makers. As a conference facilitator, she is adept at making everything run seamlessly – while also bringing incisive questioning and meticulous attention to detail.

John Pienaar

Times Radio

Before he joined Times Radio John was BBC Deputy Political Editor, covering the Westminster beat for all TV and radio outlets. He’s a wonderfully safe pair of hands – we’ve been working with him for years and the feedback from our clients is always excellent.

Samira Ahmed

News & Arts Presenter

The former Channel 4 News anchor and winner of Celebrity Mastermind also presents arts output and hosts the podcast How I Found My Voice. Combining wit, intelligence and a breadth of interests Samira is as comfortable with Hollywood as she is with Westminster or the RSC. She recently hosted our International Women’s Day breakfast with Julia Gillard, Eniola Aluko and Alex Mahon.

Clive Myrie

BBC News, Mastermind

Before he took on the weekend news and BBC quiz, Clive reported from eighty countries. He has also presented Panorama’s The Virus vs the Vaccine, been a panellist on Have I Got News For You, and made a brief appearance in the Alan Partridge film Alpha Papa.

Sameena Ali-Khan

Central Tonight

Sameena is one of my ‘go-to’ options for conference facilitators – she’s really seasoned on the corporate circuit and a delight to work with. The lead news presenter covering the East and West Midlands, Sameena also anchors ITV Weekend News, has made films for Inside Out, and interviewed Prince Philip.

Justin Webb

Today Presenter

Before he joined the Today programme Justin was the BBC’s first North America Editor. He’s also the host of one of my favourite podcasts, Americast. An engaging speaker on US affairs, he’s also an extremely assured conference facilitator.
