Former ITV presenter to close Coventry Conversations Summer Series

ON THURSDAY the 28th of May, Arti Halai will be the final guest in what’s been dubbed the most successful series of Coventry conversations to date.

Arti Halai was the face of the Central News early morning program for seven years before being let go in November 2008. She became a high profile victim of the programs advertising drought, which claimed dozens of Central employees jobs.

She is now running her own Media Training Company ‘AH Action’ which she set up in 2006. Arti will be the final guest of the series, with her talk: “so there is life after television” which will look at the transition Arti made into ‘AH Action’ after being pushed from Central.

John Mair who masterminded Coventry Conversations said: “We are delighted to have Arti back. She came to talk to us when she fronted Central News and now she is back to talk about her new role and to close the most successful run ever of the Coventry Conversations.”

He added: “In 2009, we have welcomed forty high profile guests and in turn, those guests have created many opportunities for our students. The Conversations will be back in the autumn in the Ellen Terry Building with bigger and better guests. Entry is free and open to members of the public.”

Coventry Conversations will be back in the autumn with a prolific list of speakers; Jon Snow, Debbie Issitt and Rio Ferdinand.

Entry is free and open to the public

Thursday 28 May in room ETG 34 in the Ellen Terry Building, (old Odeon Cinema) Coventry University at 1pm.
