Shaun Wallace, best recognised as one of the iconic “Chasers” on ITV’s hit television programme The Chase, will deliver the opening keynote session at Event Buyers Live 2021.

Wallace, who is also a practising barrister and lecturer on environmental law and health and safety law, will take to the stage at the exclusive industry event to discuss diversity and inclusion.

Hailed as one of the best brains in Britain, Wallace will discuss the importance of inclusion and dismantling stereotypes and share his own experiences of overcoming adversity. Plus, he will also divulge details of his expansive TV highlights, including appearances on Mastermind, The Weakest Link, and, of course, The Chase.

Speaking of the exciting opening keynote announcement, Neil Fagg, event director of Event Buyers Live, said: “As you can imagine, I am thrilled to be able to reveal Shaun as our opening keynote speaker for Event Buyers live 2021.

“Shaun’s opening address on the importance of diversity and inclusion in a modern business environment will be hugely interesting to attendees. It is such an important topic and one that all events professionals will find interesting, particularly as our industry works so hard to deliver events that connect people and create live experiences that unite people and communities.”

Fagg continued: “I am sure our attendees will also be interested to hear about Shaun’s life on TV and about his love of quizzes. In fact, Shaun might just ask our audience a question or two in our very own Event Buyers Live quiz.”
