Before joining Breakfast full time in April 2012, Louise was one of the BBC News channel’s main presenters and also regularly presented the BBC One O’clock News.

Away from news, Louise has presented five series of Missing Live, her own daytime series commended in Parliament for its work reuniting families. She has also presented five series of Real Rescues on BBC One.

In 2009 Louise was one of twelve celebrities who took part in the BBC’s “Around the World in 80 Days”. She travelled from Mongolia to Los Angeles with BBC Breakfast co-presenter Bill Turnbull to raise money for Children in Need.

Other charities Louise supports include the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Sense and AfriKids.

This is a free event which will be of interest to both specialist and non-specialist colleagues, staff, students and members of the local community. We anticipate that this event will be extremely popular, so please book tickets early at: www.tinyurl.com/DareToTri.
