Speaker Profile

About Michael Buerk

A veteran news correspondent and presenter, Michael Buerk is best known for his work with the BBC News, especially his internationally renowned 1984 reports on the famine in Ethiopia, which helped to raise awareness and are thought to have helped to save over a million lives. Known for his gravitas, his direct approach and for his bravery when speaking his mind, Michael Burke also has a lighter side; his likeability and genuine sense of humour has contributed to his career in presenting away from the news and has seen him become a sought after speaker and conference facilitator.

As a speaker, he draws upon his years of experience and a thorough knowledge of contemporary and recent events in order to motivate and educate his listeners.
