Broadcaster and Financial Analyst Danni Hewson is a leading commentator on personal finance, business and markets news.

For three years Danni was the voice of business on BBC Radio 5 Live. She regularly presented the station’s flagship business programme Wake Up To Money and was heard across the network, demystifying complicated consumer issues for millions of listeners during the station’s breakfast and drive time programmes.

With over 20 years of experience broadcasting on radio and TV,  Danni also appeared on BBC Breakfast Television, the BBC News Channel, BBC World Service and started her BBC career as Look North’s Business Correspondent

In 2021 she joined the investment company AJ Bell and works across television, radio and online platforms as a commentator and writer delivering insight and analysis across UK and Global business and financial sectors.

Danni has a passion for making financial reporting understandable and relevant to all audiences and brings a high level of financial and economic expertise, accumulated during her career as one of Britain’s most prominent business broadcasters, interviewing some of Britain’s most dynamic CEO’s. Equally she also finds some of the most interesting and insightful commentary comes from bosses of SME’s.

Danni’s profile and expertise has made her a popular and engaging event host and moderator. Corporations, business organisations and public sector clients have all benefitted from Danni’s experience facilitating and elevating their events.

Danni’s specialist topics include personal finance, consumer affairs, business, investment,  markets, economics, sustainability and climate change.


“Danni is a knowledgable, engaging and confident host, with an in-depth understanding of a wide range of different themes and policy areas. Her hosting of the Great Northern Conference was masterful; her considerable research and knowledge of the issues affecting business leaders was clear for all to see.”

Dan Cochlin, Northern Powerhouse Partnership

“Danni is a popular host of several IoD events, including our prestigious Director of the Year Awards in Yorkshire and the North East. She is always well-prepared, professional and generous with her time. Her presenting style is  relaxed and engaging, keeping the evening on track while adding valuable insights drawn from her experience as a business journalist.”

Natalie Sykes, Institute of Directors

Danni has been the presenter and keynote speaker at a number of our awards ceremonies – and we’re proud of that. Ours is  an annual construction industry event that needs refereeing as much as hosting – and Danni has always taken this in her stride. Danni’s keynotes have been pertinent and reflective of our industry’s concerns at the time. I look forward to continuing to work with Danni.

Tom Oulton, Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber.

Many thanks Danni for being a great host on our podcast, guiding our guests like a real pro, with some very good questions.

Danny Ryan, VINCI Energies UK & RoI

We are hugely grateful for your enthusiastic, well-judged, and professional delivery of Friday’s awards, which you delivered with aplomb, reading the room, organising the various contributors and – most importantly – significantly recognising and celebrating all our worthy finalists, highly commended entrants, and winners. You understood immediately the tone of the event and kept momentum throughout. A class act!

Sophie Breeden, IOD
