Spencer Kelly hosts the BBC's international technology TV programme Click. This award-winning presenter, Cambridge graduate, and Doctor of Technology is in the middle of a life-long love affair with science and technology, something he's regularly invited to talk about at events around the world.
He’s fronted Panorama, presented at the BAFTAs and hosted the world’s first 360 show in Virtual Reality. You might also have seen him on Celebrity Mastermind and Celebrity Eggheads, or heard him on Radio 2, 4 and 5 Live.

Spencer has spent 15 years as a technology tourist, discovering how technology is changing lives in countries across the tech spectrum.
From playing a robot at ping-pong in Japan, to the life-changing impact of just one SIM card on the slums of Johannesburg, he has filmed in 360 on a Swiss mountain and in the Large Hadron Collider, tested satellite broadband in the scorching Namib desert, been rescued by a robot lifeguard in LA, and walked on Mars with NASA.

Spencer has grilled the biggest names in entertainment and technology: Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, director James Cameron, music legends Paul McCartney, Will.I.Am and Brian Eno, security threats Edward Snowden and Julian Assange, national treasures David Attenborough and Stephen Fry, and has even talked tech with HM The Queen (who owns the national treasure).
Spencer often speaks at events about his life as a technology tourist, and looks ahead to the exciting new innovations he has been lucky enough to see in the lab.
He tells stories of tech from around the world, and explains the big trends of the moment - artificial intelligence, automation and blockchain, amongst others - to help companies transform into digital businesses.
He has presented live shows at the Hay Festival, the BBC Radio Theatre, hosts live events and interviews, and has even presented an award at the BAFTAs.
Spencer graduated from Cambridge University with a double first in Computer Science, and is an Honorary Doctor of Technology at Coventry University.
He was honoured to be named by T3 Magazine in 2015 as the Tech Personality of the Year (not least because it confirmed he did in fact have one).
His love for the future is not unconditional, and he's taken some controversial journeys, exposing security loopholes in Facebook, and giving the first televised demonstration of a botnet.
