It is going to be a busy three days with Louis Theroux, now revealed as Closing Keynote Speaker, wrapping up the event.

Theroux, famed for series such as Weird Weekends, When Louis Met… and his lockdown podcast, Grounded, will appear on the Elevate Stage in a session entitled “An Audience with Louis Theroux” on Wednesday 8 November, 15:30−16:30.

Throughout his career, Theroux has taken audiences on unforgettable journeys around the globe, exploring different cultures, unusual phenomena, and the human experience in ways the audience would not have imagined.

During what promises to be a fascinating hour-long session, Theroux will be interviewed by Marcus Murphy – founder and CEO of 5ive, about his incredible career, the people he has met and the countries he has visited.

He is focused on exploring the unexplored; his unique style of investigation has revealed the personalities, lifestyles, loyalties, and beliefs of those often misunderstood, written off or ignored.

Theroux started his career in print journalism, then moved into television as a correspondent on TV Nation, the ground-breaking documentary series by renowned US filmmaker Michael Moore.

He then joined the BBC and produced his Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends series, where, among other experiences, he trained with American wrestlers, mixed with gang members, and spent time with others on the fringes of society, including travelling to Bangkok to meet western men looking for Thai brides, South Africa to meet white extremists and India to discover the meaning of life.
