Documentary-presenter Louis Theroux has been announced as WTM London’s keynote speaker, wrapping up the third and final day of the event.
The Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends and When Louis Met… presenter will appear on the Elevate Stage in a session titled An Audience with Louis Theroux on Wednesday 8 November at 3.30-4.30pm.
He will be interviewed by Founder and CEO of 5ive Marcus Murphy about his career, the people he has met and the countries he’s visited.
WTM London Exhibition Director Juliette Losardo said: “We’re thrilled to announce Louis Theroux as our closing keynote – the way he navigates the world and the people he meets along the way, is intriguing.
“He’s one of the most influential documentary-presenters on the planet and his inimitable style has won him many fans.
“He sees a different side to the world when he travels, making unusual documentaries – his keynote will be sure to entertain the audience, with stories of what he has uncovered, as well as reminding us of the importance of finding unique experiences.
“His calm, non-confrontational approach is very different to many journalists and documentary-presenters and is proof that there is more than one way to get to the bottom of the issue.
“As with previous keynote events, we expect people to be queuing round the block to secure their seat for An Audience with Louis Theroux.”
