I’m Nicky Marr, an experienced event host, broadcaster and columnist based in the North of Scotland.

Event host, presenter, MC?

If you’re looking for an inspiring and professional presenter or chair for your conference, awards ceremony, festival or fashion show, you’ve come to the right place. Whether your ideas are fully formed or we’re starting with a blank sheet of paper, you can be assured that your event is safe in my hands.


Or maybe you’re looking for an engaging and warm anchor for a TV or radio show, or a sparky, insightful contributor? Then I can help. I have 13 years’ experience behind the microphone, and I have lived; I’m a mother, a businesswoman, a foodie, a pretend runner/cyclist and a ‘retired’ litigation solicitor.

I was in demand for tv debates and political and social commentary in the run up to the Scottish Independence Referendum. I’m passionate about film and theatre, and always have my nose in a book. There’s not much that I can’t talk about.


Perhaps you’re looking for a writer to add flair, humour and flow to your company brochures? Or a reviewer, travel writer or food critic?
My weekly columns give a flavour of my style – it’s easy to read, insightful and infused with humour – to read the latest, just click the link below.


My warm Northern Scottish voice will add credibility to your Corporate DVD, training videos or ad campaign.

Media Training

Media training is a service that’s increasingly in demand – if you’d like a better understanding of how to get the best coverage for your business in local media , I’d be happy to help.

What makes a good news story, and how can you maximise its impact? And how would your company react if the proverbial hit the fan?

I can help you work out your key messages, give invaluable tips on interview techniques, and let you practice that interview too. And it’s and all completely bespoke and confidential.

And if you’ve got a public speaking commitment coming up, I’ll help you overcome the fear. Together we can work on polishing up your presentation skills!
