Honorary Advisor
Brief info

Sharanjit loved doing Arts related stories even as a financial journalist and is a big theatre fan. She has spent a quarter of a century in broadcasting at the BBC, Bloomberg TV and the CBC. She spent eighteen years with the BBC covering business and politics, anchoring from its Asia bureau and from London's Broadcasting House. She regularly anchored live on location on breaking stories such as the Trump-Kim summits, the Hong Kong protests, the Sri Lankan Easter Sunday bombings, and many other breaking news deployments. She's contributed to BBC World Service radio and written for the BBC news website. A Singaporean native, she's produced and presented BBC documentaries on TV and radio about her city. Sharanjit is now such a familiar face for viewers in Asia that she is regularly invited to moderate high-level debates for the United Nations, the World Bank, the ADB and other multilateral and financial institutions. Sharanjit Leyl is the new Chancellor-Elect of Bath Spa University, succeeding Oscar winner, Jerremy Irons.
