Georgie Barrat is a technology journalist, broadcaster and presenter. At the beginning of 2017 she joined The Gadget Show’s new presenting line-up and has spent the past four years testing and reporting on the latest consumer technology.
In 2019 Georgie was the face of BBC’s FIA formula E’s Championship coverage, the electric street racing series.
Alongside her work as part of the Gadget Show team, Georgie has reported for ITV Tonight, Good Morning Britain, ITV Weekend and is a regular on The Jeremy Vine Show (formally The Wright Stuff). Most recently Georgie featured on ‘How to spend it well at Christmas’ alongside Phillip Schofield, selecting some of the best gadgets on offer for gift ideas in 2020. She also comments on breaking tech stories for the likes of Channel 5 News, Radio 5 live, talk radio & BBC Radio 2.
Away from reviewing the latest apps and devices she considers how technology is disrupting the way we work and socialise. Her keynote exploring future tech trends has taken her all over the world, being invited to speak at the likes of Web Summit, Mobile World Congress and Smart City Expo. Her writing credits extend to a range of publications including The Mirror, Tech City News, The Guardian, Marie Claire & The Metro.
Georgie is passionate about women working in technology and devotes time to encouraging more girls to be involved in STEM subjects. She works alongside Girls in ICT, the IET and Childnet striving to make technology and the digital world as exciting, safe and inclusive as possible.
Georgie also spent 2020 developing her relationship with Service Now, an American based software company, hosting numerous webinars and live broadcasts to a global audience.
She has two podcasts; “The Tech Disruption Series” that sees her interview various start-ups that are disrupting industries and “Sleep Life”, a podcast all about sleep, one of her favourite pastimes! Not one to shy away from a challenge she has a world record for the longest time anyone has been in VR (26.5 hours, if you are wondering) has run the London Marathon and bungee jumped whilst wearing a VR headset (terrifying, if you are wondering).
Georgie brings a genuine interest and warmth to everything that she does. Her journalistic background, yet playful presenting style means audiences are quick to like her and interviewees disarmed.
