Warmth and compassion come to mind when describing Sasha, who brings her journalistic background and empathy into all her work. With a background in television news, having anchored for Sky and produced / reported for other global networks including CNN, Bloomberg and CNBC, Sasha is a seasoned presenter and interviewer. Handling live breaking news events means it’s hard to be fazed when things don’t go according to plan on stage.

Recent business interviews include AI expert Mo Gawdat, former NBA champion turned climate entrepreneur Rick Fox and the former UK Chancellor, Lord Philip Hammond.

Sasha works across a wide spectrum of industries, emceeing events on tech, sustainability, cybersecurity and fintech. She’s well versed in the skill of moderating roundtables and has facilitated many conversations on digital disruption and transformation, frequently interviewing senior leaders from HPE, IBM and Microsoft amongst others. Before her TV life, she started her career in investment banking, and has retained an avid interest in business and finance, frequently working with financial institutions, including Lloyds Bank and the Treasury.
