Mary Knightingale

Twice named Newscaster of the Year, Mary Nightingale fronts ITV’s award-winning Evening News at 6 and 10 o’ clock. She also presented two series of Britain’s Best Dish and Best Dish: The Chefs, both for ITV1. After beginning her career as a Eurobond dealer, Mary moved into financial television, presenting programs for TV Tokyo, BBC World Service TV and Reuters. She presented London Tonight with Alastair Stewart for a number of years, before transferring to network news in 2000. Since then, Mary has fronted Budgets and General Elections for ITN and has won recognition for her documentary work, including a one hour special programme for ITV entitled Kate In Canada, which documented the Royal couple’s visit to Canada. She also recently presented William & Kate: The South Seas Tour, for which she travelled with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the Asia-Pacific leg of the Diamond Jubilee tour.

“[Mary] made everyone getting up on stage feel very comfortable which I am very grateful for – her warmth towards our president, senior members and award recipients made such a difference” – Institute of Structural Engineers

“Thank you again for your tremendous contribution to the Openwork Conference. The initial feedback has been extremely positive (both from the client and within P&MM) and we would be delighted to recommend Mary to other clients for similar roles in future”- Openwork

“Mary Nightingale was fantastic, truly fantastic. She delivered the perfect balance between ‘business slick’ and ‘people friendly’” – Charlotte Steelsmith, Producer

“Mary’s contribution to the success of what happened on-stage in Lisbon for KPMG cannot be understated. She demonstrated a keen grasp of a very complex subject, making all the links, interviews and discussions on-stage meaningful and relevant. Mary recognizes the value of humour and has the capacity to give confidence to the often nervous speakers and panellists, allowing them to perform at their best. She is great with the clients and is extremely flexible – no matter what we in production ask of her. All this combined to make this event much talked about and memorable, with engaged delegates and very happy clients.”- Christophe Stourton @ Catalysm Purple
