Anya Sitaram


I am award winning journalist and broadcaster specialising in global health, environment and developing world issues. A former ITN health and science correspondent and television news anchor (Sky and BBC World News) I moderate panels for a number of EU organisations, particularly the European Commission.

My day job is Executive Producer for a UK based independent Television Production Company that makes factual programmes for international TV channels.

Prior to moderating any conference or seminar, I make sure I am well prepared, liaising with the organisers and panellists beforehand. I aim to make sessions as lively as possible, keeping to time and ensuring that the audience is engaged. I will ask challenging questions if necessary.
