Speaking and Hosting

I am an experienced and eloquent public speaker. Passionate about connecting people and nature.

I have been the keynote and headline speaker at many prestigious wildlife and nature festivals and events, sharing experiences about my life as a presenter and a mother and the challenges of bringing kids up as “Free Range”. 


Drawing on my experiences on and off screen, I aim to engage and entertain audiences by making wildlife relevant and accessible. I have a secure scientific background and knowledge and love to inspire people about the natural world around them.

I speak at many careers fairs, school prize giving ceremonies and festivals, sharing my passion for the putdoors and inspiring young people to follow careers in the Media and STEM subjects.



I host many conferences, awards ceremonies and charity fundraising events. I also chairs and appears on panel discussions on Marine issues and parenting. I hosted the launch of Planet Earth II in Bristol, interviewing Sir David Attenborough after the premier screening.

I talk on Cruise ships including trip for Hebridean Princess and Hurtigruten.

Just to let you know that Miranda Krestovnikoff was a star last night at our school Prize Giving. She pitched her really fascinating speech just right for our prep school girls and their parents. I have had lots of comments this morning saying how much everyone enjoyed it.
