Just back from hosting the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, Hazel is one Britain’s most experienced, versatile and recognised presenters. The face of BBC Sport’s coverage of snooker, athletics, much of it’s golf and major events coverage, she was voted the Royal Television Society’s Sports Presenter of the Year 2007.
An excellent conference and awards host, she is equally at home as an after-dinner speaker. She talks about the motivation to reach the top of her profession, the teamwork required to pull of 130 hours of live TV from events such as the Olympics, ad the leadership skills she uses to steer a high-profile broadcast on and off the air. Hazel has interviewed international superstars from Archbishop Desmond Tutu to Robert Redford, from Dame Kelly Holmes to Tiger Woods.
