Russell Brown knows how to engage an audience with even the most complex topics. As a TV and radio presenter, columnist, commentator and blogger, he's always been able to get to the heart of the matter. Russell's skill in running a discussion manifests both online, on his pioneering website Public Address, and in the real world, at events for clients and of his own devising. And as a journalist since 1983, he has a great story to tell of the way the media have evolved and continue to change.

Late At The Museum MC - August 2015

"Russell Brown is a marvel. I have worked with Russell to bring life to five LATE at the Museum events for five consecutive years. As a moderator, his ability to make the panelists feel at ease, listen as well as weave contentious issues into the conversation makes him one of the best live interviewers that I have worked with. Russell tackles issues that he cares about and works with people that he truly values. His empathetic approach, edginess and professionalism make me look forward to collaborating with him in the future." - Dina Jezdic, Adult and Tertiary Programmer,
