About Dame Jenni Murray
Dame Jenni Murray OBE is one of radio and television’s most respected broadcasters. The former presenter of the BBC Radio 4’s ‘Woman’s Hour’, author and writer is also an outstanding event host & facilitator. Her clients include The National Lottery Commission on Women & Gambling, National Carers Week Symposium and the European Dana Alliance for the Brain.
Dame Jenni Murray has wide-ranging expertise in politics, business and the arts. As a result she has led commentators to write admiringly of her “well stocked mind”. Her passions fuel her work and her polemic for Five TV’s ‘Don’t Get me Started’ on assisted dying provoked discussion and debate beyond the usual reach of the programme. Her interviews with the powerful (PM’s, Cabinet Ministers, Church and Business leaders and the Royal Family) are described as “probing”, “steely” and “no-nonsense” and her knowledge of the arts is matchless.

"Jenni was wonderful and was the perfect choice as panel host and was particularly good at engaging the audience and delivering great introductions to each session, as well as facilitating the Q&A sessions. Her obvious engagement with the topic of women and gambling made her contributions particularly worthwhile and we are extremely pleased with her involvement."
National Lottery Commission
"Jenni was extremely professional and enthusiastic. The audience warmed to her immediately. Jenni's anecdotes about her career in broadcasting tickled everyone, and the guests genuinely enjoyed the event."
CIPR Excellence Awards
"Jenni is an excellent chair, not just because she is knowledgeable and highly respected but also because she has, as a broadcaster, the key skills required; she can manage a panel, work an audience, make sure questions aren't dodged, keep to time and as a result, enable a wide range of views to be heard. Best of all, she does all of this with just the right balance of a light touch combined with tact, humour and authority."
Help the Hospice
"The presentations given at the conference were very well received and we have had excellent feedback from the delegates about the sessions and the event as a whole. You helped us to make this the best annual conference to date!"
