Conversations with Stacey Dooley

Conversations with Stacey Dooley

Details

Twelve years into her career, Stacey Dooley has firmly established herself as one of the BBC’s most celebrated presenters through her hugely popular investigative series, covering a diverse range of topics from across the world; from arms dealers in the USA to Nigeria’s female suicide bombers, from Russia’s war on women to paramilitary attacks in Northern Ireland and how to tackle fast fashion.

Having left school at fifteen and never studying journalism professionally, Stacey’s career as a broadcaster and journalist began whilst working at Luton Airport, when she was chosen to travel to India to work as a contributor on _Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts_. She has since gone on to have her own BBC3 series, with additional commissions for shows on BBC One and Panorama. Her down-to-earth approach and ability to draw the truth out of people has engaged a new generation of younger viewers.

Stacey is also the author of the bestselling book _On the Front Line with the Women Who Fight Back _in which she drew on her global encounters with incredible women in extraordinary and scarily ordinary circumstances, and in 2018 won BBC One’s incredibly popular dance competition _Strictly Come Dancing_. Is there nothing this woman can’t do?!

In this rare live appearance, Stacey talks about her remarkable career so far, where she’s headed next, and how news and investigative journalism are evolving in such a highly polarised global political climate and a constantly shifting media landscape.

Join her for what promises to be a thought-provoking, inspiring and informative evening. With a chance to try your own hand at journalism and ask Stacey the questions, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
