CONNECTED SPEAKERS - 2019

 

The host

After the last successful conference with Fergus Walsh as host we are thrilled to have him back in 2019. Fergus is the BBC's Medical Correspondent. He appears mainly on the Six and Ten o’clock TV News on BBC1 and his reports are seen globally via BBC World News. Fergus also reports for Panorama, the world’s longest-running investigative TV programme. He can be heard on the Today programme and BBC Radio 5 Live. He also writes for the BBC news website. Fergus joined the BBC in 1984.  In the late ‘80s he was the BBC’s Legal and Home Affairs Correspondent covering issues such as crime, terrorism and miscarriages of justice. Fergus is a strong advocate for the crucial role of medical volunteers and has taken part in several clinical trials.  He has had his genes sequenced, his brain, heart and other vital organs scanned – all filmed for television reports.
