Bridgid Nzekwu

Bridgid Nzekwu has spent over 20 years at the top of British television news. She has been part of the Channel 4 and ITV News teams, presenting national bulletins as well as London programmes.

After battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Breast Cancer – resulting in a double mastectomy – years of hormone treatment and a 10 hour open heart operation, Bridgid Nzekwu is an advocate for physical and mental health and wellbeing and is well-placed to work as a keynote and motivational speaker on resilience. Entering a predominately white, male and Oxbridge-dominated industry such as the media newsroom could have been a barrier to her, but she forged on, becoming the UK’s first female mixed-race newsreader.

Bridgid Nzekwu is now a sought-after presenter, corporate host, panel chair, speaker and award-winning media trainer. She has worked with large corporations, SMEs, public sector bodies and industry groups. Bridgid completes detailed research on the client and the subject, before giving advice on content, as well as hosting virtual and live award ceremonies and interviews.
