What Polly Middlehurst's clients say
"I’d be very happy to recommend Polly to anyone that is looking for a host or media spokesperson. She was truly a pleasure to work with – very down to earth, practical and professional. She was able to quickly adapt to our changing needs, and pulled off a few tough name pronunciations … in Italian too! I’d happily work with her again."

Expert at getting the best out of her delegates, Polly was hired by Hewlett Packard for their mobile tech conference at the London Excel Centre; and the Lego Bricklive team flew her to Beijing to formally introduce the Chinese Premier and the Prince of Monaco to invited guests at ‘The Bird’s Nest’ Stadium, as well as hosting a discussion evening for elite Chinese special guests.
She regularly interviews executives at corporate events up and down the UK and across Europe, chairing topical and political debates and mediating at investor forums in the medical (Proactive Healthcare Forum at The Chesterfield, Mayfair) and energy sectors (Oil Capital Conference for Riverfort Capital).
Polly has moderated in Toronto, Canada at the annual PDAC Convention, the world’s premier international event for the minerals and mining industry. Her other clients include Public Health England and the UK’s Ambulance Service, for whom she regularly hosts at the national paramedic HART teams’ centre of excellence in western England.
Media Resilience Coach: Polly is a senior trainer on the team which prepares Britain’s ambassadors to meet the media before they are posted on to their worldwide embassies.
Polly also advises on media matters for NATO, the MOD, Public Health England as well as teaching corporate delegates at The London Business School.
TV Presenting: Polly still enjoys time in front of the camera, broadcasting to Britain’s Armed Forces globally on Forces TV and on forces.net/news as well as interviewing leading financial experts at the London Stock Exchange for the Wall Street Journal online edition.
Also a seasoned voiceover artist, Polly’s ‘trustworthy, clear and authoritative’ tone, described as a ‘warm news delivery’ is a sought-after choice for digital/TV/radio campaigns, e-learning, voicemail systems, information delivery, narration and live events.
