The internationally-acclaimed journalist and broadcaster will bring her forthright and engaging style to the industry-leading conference.

She is a regular presenter of Newsnight.
Announcing Emily’s involvement, LISW17 Steering Group Chairman Jeremy Penn said: “Emily earned her spurs when she moderated the LISW conference in 2015 and I am personally delighted she is back in the moderator’s hot seat again this year. Emily is a professional communicator and quickly grasped the key issues under debate. She will prove to be a quality addition to the top-level line-up of speakers and panellists that are being assembled for this year’s flagship conference.”
