Before Esther’s political career began she worked as a television broadcaster and producer for 12 years, becoming the youngest female host of ITV’s breakfast news alongside Eamonn Holmes. She worked for a stint in the family construction firm before setting up on her own. In 2010 she became the first and only Conservative MP on Merseyside since 1997. In 2014 she was made a Privy Counsellor and was promoted to attend Cabinet.

Alongside her own company, Esther founded the biggest business women’s network in the Northwest. Her achievements were recognised and she was nominated for both Merseyside Woman of the Year and Cheshire Woman of the Year. She has an MSc in Corporate Governance and won the North of England Excellence Award.

Esther has a personal interest in encouraging young people to reach their full potential. Whilst in government she initiated the social media campaign, #NotJustForBoys, and has written a series of career books for school pupils which she adapted into a play with the National Youth Theatre, this ran in both the West End and across the UK. She was also the minister for disabled people during her time in cabinet, so has a vested interest in aiding the lives of those living with disability. She can speak about her experiences with these groups in both schools and charities.

With her unique background encompassing broadcasting, business and politics, Esther is a multi-skilled corporate host and speaker, equally at home whether facilitating panel discussions or giving a ‘state-of-the-nation’ keynote. Her experience in cabinet means she can entertain after-dinner audiences with witty political tales. Current and intelligent, Esther is the perfect addition to a multitude of events.
