James at Corporate Events

Extremely experienced at corporate events, clients regularly hire James Nesbitt to host awards ceremonies and gala dinners, and he has hosted the British Independent Film Awards (BIFA) on six occasions, in addition to the Travel Trade Gazette Awards, The Empire Awards, GQ Awards and the Campaign Media Awards and the Music Week Awards. He is also an accomplished and entertaining after-dinner speaker.

For every event he does, James listens to the brief carefully and puts together a very funny, completely tailored anecdotal introduction linking to the specific audience, industry or organisation.
