Away from reviewing the latest apps and devices Georgie is interested in how technology is disrupting the way we work and socialise.

Her writing credits extend to a range of publications including The Mirror, Tech City News, The Guardian, Marie Claire & The Metro.
Georgie is passionate about women working in technology and devotes time to encouraging more girls to be involved in STEM subjects. She works alongside Girls in ICT, the IET and Childnet striving to make technology and the digital world as exciting, safe and inclusive as possible. She also spent 2020 developing her relationship with Service Now, an American based software company, hosting numerous webinars and live broadcasts to a global audience.
Georgie has hosted two podcasts; “The Tech Disruption Series” that saw her interview various start-ups that are disrupting industries and “Sleep Life”, a podcast all about sleep, one of her favourite pastimes! Not one to shy away from a challenge she has a world record for the longest time anyone has been in VR (26.5 hours, if you are wondering) has run the London Marathon and bungee jumped whilst wearing a VR headset (terrifying, if you are wondering).
Georgie brings a genuine interest and warmth to everything that she does. Her journalistic background, yet playful presenting style means audiences are quick to like her.
