John Young - Former TV News Presenter and Reporter- Compere 

John Young has been a member of Gatwick Diamond Business since he set up his own media consultancy, John Young Media, in 2016. It’s his fourth year hosting our conference, and more than ever this year we’re delighted to have someone who can handle the tech at the helm!


John has long been known at gdb for the workshops he delivers using his newsroom experience to help businesses to be as agile and task-focussed as a journalist on a lunchtime deadline. Since Covid-19, he’s used his wide experience of live broadcasting to deliver online workshops that help all of us make our own virtual meetings and training as professional and effective as a news bulletin.

Since leaving the BBC in October 2020, he’s been able to add more conventional media training to his list of services, helping businesses tell their stories and get their messages across in a way that instantly resonates with their staff and clients.
We’re delighted to have John with us today — at a time when, as he puts it, "we’re all broadcasters now."
