This year’s PechaKucha fundraising dinner will be Wild! with 6 speakers talking about a wild experience of their choice. Speakers are listed below, but the talk titles are secret. So the night will be full of intrigue and diverse topics – with a little bit of wildlife coming to join us for drinks.
The evening will start with a cocktail reception, followed by a three course dinner with talks in between courses. The fantastic and line up of wild speakers include:
MC: Clive Anderson
SRI Patron Clive Anderson will be sharing his witty humour with us once again, holding the night together and keeping any wayward speakers on track. Now hostingLoose Endson Radio 4, Clive is also well known for his Clive Anderson Talks Back chat show and the Who's Line is it Anyway radio and Channel 4 show.
Cameraman, filmmaker, adventurer and TV presenter Richard Terry is most recently famous for hosting the 2011 National Geographic Wild TV series Man vs Monster, which took Richard to the world’s most hostile territories to unearth the truth behind mystifying legends and come face to face with terrifying creatures. Also a professional cameraman and filmmaker, Richard has produced projects such as Alone Among Grizzlies with Richard Terry where he lived alongside bears to capture them in their natural habitats. He had no idea that it would throw him into such extreme and dangerous situations – and in front of a camera!
Louis Theroux (filming permitting – TBC)
After an engaging talk at our PechaKucha Asia events two years ago, Louis has once again said that he’d love to come along for the Wild! event in November. However, as last year, this depends on whether he gets called away for filming at the last minute. Since we last saw him, Louis has been involved in some pretty wild situations meeting the extremes of society. His latest BBC special Miami Megajail saw Louis exploring the underbelly of violent crime, where inmates live in a strange and violent group cells where they fight each other for status. Louis is most famous for his When Louis Met… and Weird Weekends.
British Labour Party politician Ken Livingstone was London's first elected Mayor in 2000 and was re-elected for a second term in 2004. His time as Mayor saw him introduce the congestion charge, restore beat police and deal with a terrorist attack. Ken has written two books and broadcasts a live phone-in show on London's LBC radio. He is also the Labour Party's candidate for the Mayoral elections due in 2012.
