John Young - South East TV Newsreader and Reporter- Compere 

John Young is a BBC TV News Presenter and reporter — who, quite simply, helps businesses get more done by lunchtime!

You may have seen him regularly reading the BBC South East lunchtime news bulletins.  That means he’s used to eye-watering deadlines, summing things up fast, do-it-now decision making, pivoting five times an hour — and keeping everything calmly to time. 

For the past three years, he’s distilled those skills into his edge-of-the-seat “Get It Done By Lunchtime” productivity workshop for businesses — giving Senior Management and their staff an exhilarating experience of working in a real-time newsroom … when you’re never sure what’s going to happen next …

He’s proud to be a member of Gatwick Diamond Business, and delighted to be invited back to host the gdb conference … and help us all ‘Re-energise’ … by lunchtime!
