One of the UK’s best-known business journalists has been confirmed as the new host of the rescheduled Consultancy and Engineering Awards on Thursday 19 January 2023.

Katie Prescott is a familiar voice to millions of listeners after a decade reporting for the BBC, including high-profile roles as the senior lead business presenter for Radio 4’s Today Programme and a business correspondent across BBC News on TV, radio and online.

She’s now the technology business editor for The Times and a weekly columnist for the newspaper’s award-winning business section. Across the fast-changing landscape of tech, media and telecoms, she brings all the key stories to readers, listeners and viewers across The Times’ platforms.

At the BBC, Prescott worked across all the corporation’s major news outlets as the on-screen face and voice explaining and analysing the tumultuous changes wrought by Covid-19, the European debt crisis and new technology, in addition to the systemic challenges of sustainability and climate change.

She has travelled extensively for her work, from Tanzania and Rwanda to China and America, as well as working as a journalist in the BBC’s New York Bureau.

Times business technology editor Katie Prescott, pictured above, is to host the rescheduled and keenly anticipated Consultancy and Engineering Awards evening on 19 January 2023.

Organised by the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE), the keenly-anticipated Consultancy and Engineering Awards had to be rescheduled due to planned nationwide rail strikes by the RMT on the original date of Thursday 3 November. 

The rescheduled ceremony will now take place on Thursday 19 January 2023, in the same venue, the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square.

The awards, which return as an in-person ceremony following last year’s online event, celebrate the outstanding achievements of our industry and champion the best people, projects and companies from the world of engineering, consultancy and the built environment.

Looking forward to the event, Prescott said: “I’m delighted to be hosting the next Consultancy and Engineering Awards. The sector has a huge role to play in creating a more sustainable future for us all, which is why I can’t wait to join you to celebrate the inspirational people, innovative projects and brilliant companies which will deliver it.”
