June Sarpong

2019 - In conversation with Caroline Criado-Perez

Having spoken at OffGrid in 2018, we asked June back this year with the simple question “Who would you most like to interview on the subject of truth vs reality?”, the answer? Caroline Criado-Perez and her work on data bias and how the world is designed for men.

June has enjoyed a 20-year career which has already seen her become one of the most recognizable faces of British television, as well as being one of the UK’s most intelligent and dynamic young hosts. June is a media phenomenon and is the only host of her generation that is equally comfortable interviewing politicians, celebrities and members of the public.

June has also taken on the world’s most challenging live audiences, hosting 2005’s major Make Poverty History event in London’s Trafalgar Square and presenting at the UK leg of Live Earth in 2007. In 2008 alongside Will Smith she also hosted Nelson Mandela’s  90th Birthday celebrations in front of 30,000 people in London’s Hyde Park.
