Iolo Williams

After Dinner Speaker, Keynote Speaker, Conference Presenter, Awards Host

Wildlife TV presenter Iolo Williams has been part of the Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch presenting team since 2010. He’s presented series such as Wild Wales, Rugged Wales and Great Welsh Parks for BBC 2.

Iolo Williams was born and bred in mid Wales. He has a degree in ecology worked for the RSPB for almost 15 years. His role as Species Officer for Wales saw him work with some of the country’s rarest breeding birds and this, inevitably, brought him to the attention of the media.

Iolo Williams’ talks

Two series for BBC 2, Visions of Snowdonia and Birdman, followed his work as an RSPB officer and in the late 1990s, Iolo left the Society to work full-time in the media. Iolo speaks Welsh and English. His series, in both languages, concentrated on the wildlife of Wales and the world and he co-presented several network series such as Nature’s Top 40 and Countryfile.

He has written several books on Welsh wildlife in both English and Welsh and he is a regular contributor to several magazines, including ‘BBC Wildlife’.

Rugby Player, PADI Divemaster, Paraglider

As a keen sportsman, Iolo has played rugby most of his life, he’s a qualified paraglider and has a PADI Divemaster qualification.

He is a patron of several Welsh conservation organisations and is president of the Welsh Ornithological Society.

For charity he has walked up Kilimanjaro and has twice trekked the length of Wales.
