June Sarpong has enjoyed a 15-year career which has already seen her become one of the most recognisable faces of British television, as well as being one of the UK’s most intelligent and dynamic young hosts.
June is best known as the face of T4, one of Channel 4’s most successful and longstanding homegrown series. Her interviewees include some of the world’s biggest names such as Sir Elton John, 50 Cent, George Clooney, Halle Berry, Britney Spears, Will Smith and Nicole Kidman as well as dignitaries and politicians including Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Tony Blair, Nelson Mandela and Gordon Brown. 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. June has worked extensively with HRH Prince Charles for ten years as an ambassador for his charity the Prince’s Trust; she also campaigns for The One and Product (RED). June was awarded an MBE (Member of the British Empire) on the Queens 2007 new years honours list for her services to broadcasting and charity.
June is also at the forefront of social media and internet technology. She Co-Founded WIE (Women: Inspiration & Enterprise), a dynamic NYC women’s conference and website hosted by First Lady Sarah Brown, past speakers have included Queen Rania, Melinda Gates, Ashley Judd, Baroness Amos and Ambassador Melanne Verveer. June is stylish and aspirational but at the same time down-to-earth and one of us – someone you would want to invite into your living room every day, which makes her an excellent speaker.
This is now our second year working with Raise The Bar and I believe we have built a strong long-term relationship. What constantly impresses me is the passion that the team have and their genuine desire to see your people grow and develop as a result of the events they run.
