Congratulations to corporate favourite after dinner speaker and host, Sandi Toksvig, who is due to take over hosting the hugely popular BBC Q1 quiz.  Sandi is set to take over from Stephen Fry who has successfully presented the show for 12 years when he steps down at the end of the forthcoming series - which is ready to launch this Friday.

Sandi stepped down as host of BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz earlier this year in order to focus on her political career and founded a new political movement.  She has also been named C4 Political Humorist of the Year in the past by the Press Guild.

 

Sandi is an entertaining and erudite speaker and much in demand for numerous events.  Feedback includes: "Sandi was a delight, so personable and engaging." Barclays Capital

 

 “The best compere ever of our CIMA Financial Awards. Co-edited the script with the organiser just before the awards to make it more punchy, had 350 finance professionals and recruitment consultants in stitches and still managed to keep the house in order as the evening got more lively. Consumate professional, topical and VERY funny.” CIMA
