Jeremy is an award-winning TV and radio broadcaster, well known for his quirky news and sports features for BBC TV and radio.
He is much in demand as a keynote speaker on communication. He shares the skills he learnt from 27 years as a BBC news and current affairs broadcaster with corporate audiences. He teaches how businesses can pitch better and win more new business using techniques from TV, radio and storytelling.
As you’d expect from someone who also works as a comedian these are very entertaining sessions, which always score highly with delegates in the fun column, but they’re also packed with great takeaway value which ensure his clients always invite him back.
Jeremy Nicholas is an accomplished after-dinner speaker, especially when they want someone funny, but can’t afford someone really famous.
His lightness of touch ensures the audience always has a great time and no one gets offended.
Stories from his life as a broadcaster are always popular, especially the ones about live broadcasts that went wrong. He’s spoken at events across the world to audiences of 30 to 900.
Jeremy always makes it a memorable evening, which is why he gets rebooked again and again.
As long as he gets paid he doesn’t really care about the size of the audience. He eats a lot of chicken dinners up and down the country but if asked he prefers lamb.
His one man show ‘After Dinner Stories From My Disastrous Broadcasting Career’ ran for 27 days to great acclaim at the prestigious Gilded Balloon venue at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018.
Jeremy Nicholas is the perfect host for your awards show.
There are two main types of awards hosts: the TV presenter and the comedian.
The TV presenter is the first choice if you want authority and the show running to time with no mistakes, but it might be a bit dull.
The comedian is the first choice if you want lots of laughs and witty banter, but there’s the danger they might overstep the mark, use colourful language or offend someone.
The ideal awards show host would have all the authority of a BBC news presenter combined with the wit of someone who’s also a stand-up comedian.
Look no further than Jeremy, he has 27 years in news and current affairs and a lifetime in comedy to fall back on.
He’s hosted awards shows for Samsung, IBM, Hitachi, Symphony Legal and many other large organisations.
In 2014 he hosted The Good Funeral Awards. If he’d died that night at least he would have been in the right place, but he didn’t. He stormed it. He counts it as one of the highlights of his career.
He’s also hosted some really big, glitzy awards shows including the BESMA Awards, UK Business Awards, Newspaper and Magazine of the Year Awards, UK Customer Experience Awards, UK Digital Experience Awards, UK Employee Experience Awards, Knowledge Exchange and Impact Awards, UK Financial Services Experience Awards and is the only person ever to have twice hosted the Association of Serviced Apartment Providers Awards.
Across the world this job has many different titles, but whether it’s an event host, compere or MC you are searching for, Jeremy Nicholas is your man.
He’s much in demand as an MC at events. He’s compered hundreds of business events for the likes of IBM, Samsung and Boots. He’s three times hosted the annual international convention of the Professional Speaking Association, the only person to have done so.
People book him because he’s funny but authoritative. He will make your event hugely entertaining but will never overstep the mark.
He’s a seasoned chat show host, so he’s perfect for interviewing chief executives onstage at annual conferences, using just the right amount of banter to make it flow, without obscuring the important business message.
If you hire Jeremy to host your conference you will be in very good company as this recent client list will testify.
