Thank you to our incredible host Arlene Stuart!
Arlene Stuart is a well-known face and voice in the UK broadcast industry. From her early beginnings on STV through her time with BBC and Grampian Television to hosting the Scottish TV children’s magazine programme, Wemyss Bay 902101 and presenting Mellow Magic and her becoming as part of the morning breakfast team on Forth1, Arlene has developed a diverse range of presentation styles. With her natural ability, total professionalism and enthusiastic approach, Arlene has become an extremely popular live event host.
Arlene is a superb host for conferences and awards with a wealth of experience gained over the years, working alongside a host of top named stars, even introducing Prince Charles when she chaired a debate at Holyrood.
As one of the main voice over artists in Scotland, Arlene is heard on a daily basis on television and radio adverts.
“Arlene did an excellent job. Lots of positive feedback from guests and some were genuinely delighted to meet her. She was extremely well prepared and understood exactly what we required from the night – managing to encapsulate what the awards are all about with her presentation.”
David Ridd, Communications Officer, NHS Lothian Awards
“Arlene’s delivery and presentation of awards set an ideal tone for the evening and I received some great feedback. The event was a huge success.” Jane Wood CE. SBC Annual Awards
