Leading commentator and broadcaster, David Aaronovitch, is one of the UK’s most experienced conference presenters and speakers. He won the Orwell Prize for political journalism in 2001 and is a regular political and social commentator in The Times and on BBC programmes such as Newsnight and the Andrew Marr Show.

Whether it’s addressing audiences of over a thousand for Intelligence Squared or giving a keynote speech alongside the Mayor of London at the Mansion House, David’s ability to engage and entertain is in great demand. He has chaired and spoken at conferences in the private and public sectors for over 30 years with his most recent engagements including Canada’s travel industry, EMAP and The Association of Chief Police Officers.

David combines his conference facilitating skills with his role as a speaker. David’s inside knowledge of the changing political landscape in Britain, Europe and the US, combined with his natural sense of humour has illuminated a range of conferences and events. His insight into political leadership following his close association with Tony Blair during the making of the BBC series ” The Blair Years,” mean that his views are influential.

Following the recent publication of his Sunday Times bestseller, “Voodoo Histories,” which considers the purchase that conspiracy theories currently have on public opinion, David’s views on how people come to believe far-fetched ideas about anything from Obama’s birth to Princess Diana’s death have commanded great attention. His most recent book is a personal memoir entitled “Party Animals – My Family and Other Communists” and has been critically acclaimed since its release.
