3.) Biography

Jeremy is an award winning TV and radio broadcaster, well known for his quirky ‘and finally’ and sports reports for BBC TV and radio. He presented The World Today on the BBC World Service as well as winning a Sony Award for his BBC London breakfast show. He’s a well known voice on news and sports broadcasts, winning A New York Academy Award for his live commentary at the Hillsborough Disaster.

South Africans will recognise his voice from his commentaries on SuperSport on every night of athletics at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

He married Jeanette Kruger, the great, great, great granddaughter of President Paul Kruger, so he’s a regular visitor to Johannesburg and Potchefstroom.

He lives in London where he runs Talking Toolbox, which teaches advanced presentation skills and media training using techniques from over 30 years on TV and radio. Jeremy’s an accomplished after-dinner speaker. In  2014 his career peaked when he hosted The Good Funeral Awards.

He’s much in demand as an MC at events. He’s compered hundreds of business events for the likes of IBM, Samsung and Boots. His background as a sports broadcaster is a perfect fit for awards shows. On television he’s reported on the face of Elvis appearing on a piece of Stilton cheese, the Moscow State Circus husband and wife crossbow act who were getting divorced but still had eighteen months left on their contract and Speedy the tortoise having an artificial leg fitted. Tragically pigeonholed as an end-of-bulletin man, he never gets the lead story.

He devised and presented the TV sports quiz Sick as a Parrot.

In October 2015 he was awarded the highest award in UK speaking, the PSAE - Professional Speaking Award of Excellence, only the fifteenth person in history to receive it. He’s the immediate past president of the Professional Speaking Association, London region.

Kids of all ages are more impressed that he’s the voice of the announcer on the global best selling FIFA football video games. If your children have  this game, you will know this man’s voice, perhaps a little too well.

In real life he served sixteen years as the stadium announcer at West Ham United FC, announcing West Ham’s goals very loudly and the opposition’s very quietly.

Jeremy’s career highlights include being punched by legendary Nottingham Forest football manager Brian Clough during an interview and being ambushed live on air by an armed man claiming to be Jesus. He’s a published author and his latest book ‘A Million Tips on Public Speaking - Volume One’ is available as a free download on his website www.JeremyNicholas.co.uk.

He enjoys sea salted caramels made by multi-award winning chocolatier Bianca Marton. In fact he likes them so much that in 2014 he did a Dragon’s Den style investment and now co-owns Bianca Marton Chocolates, the award winning chocolate business in London. Jem likes to think that his friends refer to him as Willy Wonka, but he may have misheard.
