Biography

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.

Testimonials

"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!"

Dame Jennie Murray describes her work with people in tragic or difficult circumstances and one reviewer wrote of Jenni as "an interviewer who for sensitivity and pointfulness (sic) leaves most others far behind". As presenter of BBC Radio's 'Woman's Hour', Dame Jenni Murray OBE demonstrated daily her incredible range and depth and a unique ability to understand the feelings and complexities of those she interviewed. The same talents she brought to Radio 4’s 'The Message', BBC TV’s Newsnight, Everyman and BBC Radio's Today and Tuesday Call. In late 2000 she brought her wit and wisdom to a couple of episodes of the revamped 'Loose Women – Live Talk' - for Granada TV. Also for Granada TV, Jenni presented three series of 'This Sunday' - a live look at issues across the entire religious spectrum. She wrote a weekly column for the Express - a great forum for her wit and ideas, and written proof of her versatility and depth. She also wrote for the Mail amongst many others. Away from page and broadcast Jenni is an accomplished conference facilitator and presenter - skilled at managing platform and audience with an incisive grasp of issues and impressive speaking skills.
