I am an Irish journalist and broadcaster who moderates conferences all over Europe. These days I’m specialising in European stories and my current journalistic work includes reporting on the European Parliament’s plenary sessions in Strasbourg and Brussels for all of the independent radio stations in Ireland.
I am a former BBC foreign correspondent who has worked with the BBC in Northern Ireland, the Balkans, London and Scotland in radio and television. I presented the award-winning Wide Angle radio show on Ireland’s national talk radio station, Newstalk, for nearly a decade. That live broadcasting experience has given me the tools to conduct dynamic debates and interact with audiences in a way that ensures an event will be as lively and engaging as possible.
I regularly moderate international conferences. Recent clients have included the EU Committee of the Regions, EU Commission for regional policy, European Parliament, European journalism Centre, and the State of North Rhine Westphalia, Germany. The topics I cover can range from business, finance and politics to environmental, security and health issues.
I founded Planet Podium in 2013 to provide professional moderators for international conferences. At Planet Podium we work closely with our clients to ensure our moderators understand their requirements so that they can achieve their conference goals. We bring our expertise and experience to ensure optimum results.
