Roger Harrabin is the BBC's Environment Analyst and has been leading the way on environment and energy with BBC News for more than 30 years - he was talking about Climate change, long before it became a hot topic. He has broadcast on environmental issues since the 1980s and has won many awards in print, TV and radio. He has travelled the world and interviewed world leaders and business leaders on various envrionmental issues.
Away from broadcasting, he is a popular conference chair and moderator – and while an obvious choice for environmental themes – he is equally at home chairing a wide range of topics and subjects.
For conferences he deploys a deep knowledge of energy and environmental issues, spiced by a highly amusing, challenging and unorthodox style that audiences love! He questions guests with sharp insight and wit, and doesn’t allow speakers to get away with waffle. He plays games with the audience and is constantly finding new ways to help audience members relax.
He is also a sought after keynote speaker on environmental issues and climate change. As well as talking about the science behind it, he is able to discuss and address the geo political background and various approaches to it from around the world.
On a lighter note, he has a huge compendium of hilarious and provocative anecdotes that make him a thought-provoking and entertaining after dinner speaker.
Roger is a Visiting Fellow at Green Templeton College, Oxford, an Associate Press Fellow at Wolfson College, Cambridge and has received an Honorary Doctorate of Science from Cranfield University.
