From 'in-conversations with' to theatre shows; formal ceremonies and festival stages to subject based conferences
Live Events are a favourite - an audience or crowd make them so great to do. I can do informal events through to major choreographed large events.
Award ceremonies are a pure delight to present. Festival main stage hosting is such good fun. I also do many 'in conversation' events on a whole range of topics, particularly for festivals. Recently I have hosted events as diverse as an interview discussion on Marxist economics with Paul Mason to An Evening with Luke Goss. I have also had the honour of being on tour with Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen as host of her 2020 sell out theatre tour.
I also host and chair conferences. This is where my previous career running charities and partnership initiatives, and working in public policy/campaigns comes into its own - having designed facilitated many events and conferences to enable decision making, consultation and engagement. Because I can combine my hosting and presenting sills with my inside knowledge and experience I can really bring something additional to the event.
I always feel blessed at live events that so many people will come and talk to me afterwards, giving great feedback. I think me and the audience feed off each other's energy.
So what ever your live event, I will bring pure professionalism and often an unrivalled knowledge, but I'll also bring my warmth, humour, joie de vivre. And of course I'll crack a few jokes.
