Type Of Speaker


It gives me great pleasure to write this testimonial for Samantha Johnson. I have known her for many years and seen her career at TRT develop. She is an accomplished and professional presenter and interviewer with charm and good knowledge of her subject matter. She hosted a virtual presentation of mine to the Bilgi University in Istanbul and made my job easy. David Dein MBE, Ambassador for the FA and Premier League

Samantha was an exceptional host for the launch event of my first book ‘They Don’t Teach This’. I was so grateful to Samantha for how well researched, diligent, informed and caring she was about my work, which meant the Q&A element of the event was so powerful. Sam is an excellent interviewer, her questions have always challenged me to go beyond the conventional cliché and be true and authentic to who I am, which then allows the viewer to learn something. Her passion for sport, travel and life is a pleasure to be around. Eniola Aluko, Former Chelsea and Juventus forward and England International, Aston Villa Women Sporting Director 

Samantha is a wonderful host. She was very professional, her questions were to the point which gave me the feeling that she was well prepared in advance. Her enthusiasm in knowing about Global Wellness Day and knowledge on the wellness industry as a whole, really kept the viewers engaged. Belgin Aksoy, Founder of Global Wellness Day

Samantha is an engaging personality with a wonderful ability to tell stories based on her experiences – an invaluable asset in a broadcaster! She engages the viewer while her friendliness and warmth create a great relationship with her audience. She’s covered many important sporting events, watched real-life drama unfold and met some of the most important personalities in the world of sport. All of this experience has given her a rich background to draw upon and bring to any event in which she is participating. Finally, the skills she utilises in a live studio setting, with multiple cameras and guests are exactly the skills she uses to successfully host or moderate conferences and debates. Adnan Nawaz, News Anchor
