A Leading International Speaker Consultation & Booking Service

Kevin McCloud

Kevin McCloud is a great keynote speaker, presenter and awards host. Kevin is best known for Channel 4’s Grand Designs and for his annual coverage of the Stirling Prize (the highest award for contemporary British architecture). Kevin's two ambitions are to entertain and to make the built environment better - and consequently ‘make people feel better’. Kevin is a fabulous keynote speaker on sustainable architecture and the environment.

Kevin admits to an obsession for buildings since childhood: he studied the history of them at the University of Cambridge. Since, he has written about, built and designed buildings, he has lived and breathed every aspect of architecture. He champions issues such as context, the historic environment and sustainable construction, and has been a columnist for The Sunday Times. Kevin also writes for Grand Designs magazine.

Kevin’s other forays into television include Don’t Look Down for BBC2, in which he climbed six tall buildings and Demolition for Channel 4, in which he, George Ferguson, and Janet Street-Porter started a campaign to improve public space in our towns and cities. Kevin appeared on Top Gear in 2008 and Kevin McCloud's Grand Tour of Europe on Channel 4 in 2009. He presented Slumming It in 2010 and continues to appear at the hugely successful Grand Designs Live shows.

Kevin was awarded two honorary doctorates, from Plymouth and Oxford Brookes, primarily for getting rid of the capital 'A' from architecture. He is a recalcitrant patron of several architectural and sustainable charities, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Foresters and a WWF Ambassador. He was awarded an MBE in 2014 for services to sustainable design and energy saving property refurbishment.

When not filming, Kevin runs a product design practice. He has designed lighting for some of the finest buildings in Europe and many great houses - Ely Cathedral, Edinburgh Castle, two European palaces, the Savoy and Dorchester hotels, to name a few. Kevin has also written numerous highly acclaimed books.

Kevin is a much sought-after speaker and awards host in the corporate sector.
