Naga Munchetty, journalist and broadcaster will host The Business Day at Bridlington Spa on Friday 8 June 2018, placing business networking at the heart of a day of discovery and insight.
Naga is known for being one of the main presenters on breakfast television. She will be joined on the day by headline speaker Joanna Lumley and also Geoffrey Boycott, as previously announced.
After graduating with a degree in English Literature and Language from Leeds University, Naga's determination saw her achieving a Post-graduate Diploma in Newspaper Journalism from City University.
Her career started at the Evening Standard, but soon after she became a reporter for Reuters Financial Television. Later, she earned the position of Senior Producer for CNBC Europe and then became a producer and reporter for News at Noon (Channel 4). Naga also worked for Bloomberg TV, where she was a senior presenter interviewing major CEOs and bank managers and most recently can be seen regularly presenting breakfast television.
Golf is one of Naga's passions and she plays it up to five times per week – she has admitted that her handicap is 8, but she is determined to get even lower.
In 2013, Naga was crowned the winner of Celebrity Mastermind on the subject of The Ryder Cup: she answered every question correct on her pet subject.
Naga aims to empower women around the world to achieve career success. In 2014, she was named in the Asian Power List as one of the UK's most powerful Asian females alongside Jameela Jamil and Liberty Director Shami Chakrabati.
She is internationally recognised as a leading authority on world politics, international and current affairs as a broadcaster and television journalist.
