Georgie is a leading technology journalist and presenter. Earlier this year she joined the new presenting team on Channel 5’s Gadget Show. This was a dream come true for Georgie and she has loved the challenge so far. Georgie also writes about tech for a range of publications including The Mirror, Marie ClaireHuffington Post Tech City News and has spoken on the subject for the likes of ITVChannel 4 and the BBC.

Georgie has also appeared as ITV’s Weekend’ resident tech expert, talking Aled Jones through the latest gadgets and gizmos, whilst also working alongside the production team to help source and create the feature. Other presenting work includes being Carphone Warehouse’s YouTube presenter (she loves getting her hands on all the latest smartphones) and delivering Tech City News’ weekly video roundup, which sees her interview some of the most exciting start-ups from Silicon Roundabout. She’s also presented alongside Matthew Wright on Channel 5’s ‘The Wright Stuff’ and has worked on-camera with a range of tech companies including SonyAcerEE, AsusHP and Mobile World Congress.

Georgie recently filmed a Channel 4 Shorts pilot, which she developed herself and is both producing and presenting. The series investigates a major interest of hers, futurology – a subject which she hopes to explore further on TV.

As a journalist, Georgie writes about tech for a range of publications including The Mirror, Marie ClaireHuffington Post Tech City News and has spoken on the subject for the likes of ITVChannel 4 and the BBC.

An experienced moderator, facilitator and host, Georgie has worked with corporate clients including IntelAdobe and Retail Week Live.

Georgie is passionate about getting more girls into coding and works alongside two charities (STEMettesBaytreeCentre) to help encourage 11-14 year-olds to study STEM subjects at GCSE & beyond. As a tech journalist her mission is to do away with the male skewed angle that tech is often portrayed in.
