Declan Curry

 

Others say

"Excellent."
Retail Plus

"Very professional, prepared and easy to work with."
IPSE

"Declan was very dynamic, engaging and new how to bring both the audience and panel to life. On a working level - he was very approachable and rolled with what was an untraditional working space!"
Barclays Bank Plc

"Declan gave an entertaining introduction to the day with some relevant examples. Only downside was that with the questions the session overran by about 20 mins"
Chartered Insurance Institute

Journalist, speaker & conference chair Declan Curry was one of the BBC's most recognisable business presenters and is an accomplished after dinner and keynote speaker, conference facilitator and awards host.

Declan previously presented BBC's Working Lunch and was the front man for the BBCs Breakfast Business News for many years. He was also the Business Presenter on BBC News 24 since the channel's launch in 1997.

Declan used to present 'Show Me The Money' on BBC News, and a weekly programme on business and work - 'On The Money' on BBC Radio 5 Live and a weekend show ‘Your Money’, providing essential news and information on personal finance.

His broadcasts on Breakfast, covered a wide range of stories about business, work and money, and Declan tried to extract news and views from chief executives, trade union leaders, stock market watchers, private investors and individual workers.

"Declan came as expected and delivered just what we wanted. He had done plenty of groundwork, helped by our initial briefing and a call in advance of the event. The feedback from the delegates attending was that Declan did an excellent job of keeping the programme flowing, even asking the questions of the speakers when they seemed too shy to do so."
The Energy Consortium

BBC Business is all about getting rich - slowly, Declan says. It all boils down to hard cash - where our money comes from, and where it goes; how we earn it, how we spend it, and how we can use it to make even more of it.

Declan Curry previously broadcast for the BBC's international news channel, BBC World, and spent two years as a daily business commentator in the United States for ABC News.

Declan also presented BBC Radio 5 Live's early morning business programme, Wake up to Money, and produced and reported for a range of programmes, including Radio 4's personal finance flagship Moneybox, Radio 5 Live's Financial World Tonight, and World Service Radio's World Business Report. In the past he has worked for the London-based commercial news station LBC, and writes for a wide range of newspapers, magazines and industry publications in the UK, the Irish Republic and the United States.

His previous speaking engagements include the Global Economic Symposium, which has become an annual event for Declan, National Business Awards conference, Retail Week Conference and the Engineering Employers Federation annual awards. He has also spoken about the economy at CIPFA and did a speech at a business event at the Stormont Parliament Building in Belfast.

Declan has been a judge for the British Insurance Awards, the Proshare Investor Awards and the Princes' Trust Business Awards, among others.
