Todd Benjamin is well known to television audiences across the globe. For 26 years he worked as an anchor, correspondent, and financial editor for CNN. During that time he was based in Washington DC, New York, Tokyo and London.
Benjamin’s wide-ranging international experience and informed opinions, combined with his engaging style have made Benjamin a sought after moderator and interviewer, often working with the same clients year after year.
Benjamin works closely with his clients to ensure that their conferences and meetings will be energizing, informative, and effective.
As one client says, “his moderation technique made sure that everybody was involved and more importantly energized—in fact a quote from one of the CEO’s was that the whole room became a panel.”
He always begins a conversation with clients, “What are the main themes or points you want your audience to walk away with, both from a content and branding viewpoint. How can I help assure you that the money you are spending on this event is money well spent, reflecting well on you and the firm.”
His clients range from Fortune 500 companies to financial firms and private equity firms.
An award winning journalist, Benjamin has interviewed Mikhail Gorbachev, Bill Clinton, Alan Greenspan, Tony Blair, Dick Cheney, as well as several of the world’s leading CEOs.
Benjamin continues to appear on CNN as an independent analyst to provide live commentary and analysis, where his views on the global economy, financial markets, Eurozone crisis, and other issues are widely followed.
Benjamin is a senior advisor to an international management consultancy which works with major companies to transition to a low-carbon economy.
Benjamin is also a visiting lecturer in leadership at the London Business School Executive Education program.
