BBC News presenters and reporters have been instructed to have their names removed from this and other agency websites. However they are still permitted to take on outside engagements, providing the role fits within BBC guidelines concerning impartiality – and many are keen to do so. Please ask your JLA agent for details and availability of any BBC names you do not see listed on this site.

Now that flight restrictions have been lifted, we've been able to re-schedule the Speakers Breakfast with our American digital 'whiz-kid' Josh Spear. The new date will be TUESDAY 11TH MAY, AT THE LANSDOWNE CLUB, 9 FITZMAURICE PLACE, LONDON.

Due to the ongoing flight restrictions as a result of volcanic ash, Josh Spear is unfortunately unable to travel to the UK in time for his appearance at the JLA Speakers Breakfast and the event will now be postponed. JLA apologises for any inconvenience caused.
We have considered replacing Josh with another speaker, but have decided against on this occasion because of the very specific subject matter and Josh's distinctive US perspective. Once flights return to normal we will reschedule this event. We are hoping to find a date in May, and will publish this information the moment it is confirmed.
