Arif Ansari
Conference Chair, MC and Speaker

Arif Ansari is the BBC's North West political editor.  He presents the Sunday Politics North West, and reports for North West Tonight.  He has also reported for Newsnight, Radio 4 and the Ten o'clock News, as well as contributing to national election programmes.

Arif is used to chairing discussions.  He regularly interviews senior politicians including David Cameron, George Osborne, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband.  And he's got plenty of stories to tell, having covered the 2010 general election in the North West, the Manchester riots and the MPs' expenses scandal.  More unusual assignments have included reporting from inside a nuclear-powered submarine and from outside Dr Who's Tardis.

His career began in local radio in Liverpool and then Stoke on Trent.  He spent seven years as a political reporter at Westminster where he covered the Iraq War, the 2005 general election and the fall of Tony Blair.  He was in Downing Street when Gordon Brown entered as prime minister.

He regularly visits schools and colleges to talk about journalism, and to raise aspirations.

Arif is available to chair conferences, host events and for after-dinner speaking.  

Fee Band: £500 - 2k
