Nick is a regular One Show reporter and the presenter of Channel 5’s hugely successful Caught on Camera strand. He is a journalist by trade, starting out as an entertainment reporter at Radio 1 (where he interviewed Madonna, Halle Berry, Bruce Willis and Mick Jagger among many others) before switching into current affairs and investigative journalism, recently producing a well-received Panorama. Nick has considerable experience of the corporate world and enjoys working with clients and audiences to give them the best possible experience, whether in live presenting or recorded audio/visual work. Nick also spent six weeks in training to perform a stand-up routine for Comic Relief in front of Jo Brand, Hugh Dennis and Emma Freud, and he survived to tell the tale
“We work with senior people in large businesses so it’s vital our team are professional, efficient, responsive, reliable and can manage clients’ expectations while delivering the best service possible. Nick possesses all these qualities. He is great to work with and in particular his business interviewing abilities are highly skilled reflecting his friendly and intelligent personality, essential to relax interviewees and produce the best content.” – Russell Pockett, Production Director, Brand Conversation.
“We hold a number of events throughout the year, many of which are prestigious black tie events. We are all too aware of how important it is to have a speaker who is not only engaging, charismatic and professional but is also able to create an atmosphere and maintain it. We hired Nick Wallis for some of our regional business awards and he was all of the above. Not only did the audience love him but he knew exactly how to keep everything going, moving things along when needed, giving people time when needed, he was an absolute pleasure and professional to work with. I felt completely relaxed leaving Nick to run the stage and would not hesitate to use him again in future.” – Susie Marshall, Johnston Press South Events.
“Nick is a joy to work with and can self produce with just the shortest of briefings. We always know that he’ll deliver just what we need – concise, witty, relevant reports and insightful interviews with just the right people. Nick is a real asset to the team and we’re always glad to work with him.” – Georgina Hall, Sony Radio Academy Awards Secretariat.
“It was with some trepidation I viewed our Democracy Day. Traditionally six schools send a group of 15-16 year olds for a Q+A session in the style of Question Time. The host must empathise with the pupils and be authoritative and focused with the panel. My fears were groundless as Nick Wallis took charge instantly. The mention of his work on Radio 1 had the students’ attention which he kept for whole session. The panel were given just enough time to make their points but allowed no deviation. We would certainly use him again if he is available – and I have learned a great way to warm up an audience!” – Cllr Richard Mantle, Mayor of Reigate and Banstead.
“Nick was an entertaining and effective host who spent time mastering the brief and understanding the topics under discussion. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as an MC and facilitator for any corporate event.” – Trevor Dann. Director, The Radio Academy.
