Kate Silverton



In her twenty-five years as a journalist, Kate has become one of the BBC’s main national news presenters. She has produced and presented numerous documentaries, including for the BBC’s flagship current affairs programme, ‘Panorama’. She has reported from the frontlines in Iraq and Afghanistan, covered the glitz and glamour of the Oscars in Hollywood, as well as stepped out beneath the glitter ball herself as a contestant on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

Throughout it all, Kate has advocated for children and their emotional well-being. Her academic roots are in child development, with a BSc in Psychology; she has worked for more than a decade in children’s mental health, ultimately retraining as a children’s counsellor with the children’s mental health charity, Place2Be. Philanthropically, for many years she has supported charities like the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, The NHS Maudsley Foundation Trust, as well as the NSPCC and their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Royal Foundation.

Her passion is to share what she has learned with as many parents as she can, to help them to have the parenting experience they have always hoped to have, and for their children to have the parenting experience they deserve.

Kate is also highly-experienced in working with corporates delivering engaging, warm and inspirational talks and Q&A’s to employees as well as Boards/Executive Teams.

In April 2021, Kate released her book 'There's No Such Thing As Naughty' which is a Sunday Times Best Seller.

"Kate is a complete star and did everything with joy, enthusiasm and the utmost professionalism and finesse.  It was an absolute pleasure to work with her on the Summit and I very much hope to work with Kate again in the future. As you could see from tweets, everyone was talking about her. A good Chair of a Conference/Summit is worth their weight, and some, in GOLD!  She deserves a medal " you'd think she was in our business for years.  Can't praise her enough!"  Association of Online Publishers
"We have had good hosts in the past, but Kate surpassed them all. She is not only highly professional, grasping the nuances of a specialised industry sector, but comes over as an incredibly nice, likeable person. Her support for our chosen charity, Help for Heroes, boosted contributions to a fantastic amount. We had a great deal of feedback, 100% of which was positive. We have already asked about her availability for next year's event."  MD, CWC Research
