I've worked in TV and radio for 25 years, and it's been clear to me that the most efficient, successful and happy workplaces in my career have been the most diverse. From gender to ethnicity and disability to age, the jobs that stand out for me for enjoyment and productivity, are those where inclusion is high on the agenda. So it'll be a real pleasure to return as host for an award ceremony that champions diversity and inclusion.
