Since exploding onto our screens in 2009, when Diversity won season three of Britain’s Got Talent, Ashley Banjo has carved an exceptional career in entertainment and media. The popular celebrity personality has gone on to judge several talent shows, including Got to Dance until 2014, Can’t Touch This in 2017 and Britain’s Got Talent in 2020. As a presenter, Ashley excels onscreen, evidenced on Flirty Dancing and A Night for the Emergency Services. When he is booked for virtual events, he wows audiences with his talent and charm – not to mention some killer dance moves!

In 2009, Ashley and his dance group, Diversity, auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent. Having just won the 2007 Street Dance Weekend competition, many predicted that Ashley and his team would make waves on the popular British show. His squad received three “yes” votes from the judges in the audition, soared through to the final and won the show, earning then a chance to perform at the Royal Variety Show. Since then, Ashley has enjoyed a thriving career in entertainment, both onscreen, onstage and at virtual events.

In 2007, Ashley formed Swift Moves with his brother, Jordan Banjo, before expanding the group to over ten people and renaming themselves Diversity. His talent and charm led Ashley to be named a finalist in the South Bank Show awards, a testament to his impact on dance. In 2012, Diversity took their BGT fame one step further by embarking on their tour, titled Digitized – Trapped in the Game, followed by Limitless in 2013.

Ashley is the perfect performer to feature at virtual corporate events. His explosive dance moves and down to earth personality will resonate with audiences of all ages, while his experience on screen makes him effortlessly confident. As a webinar guest speaker, he can discuss the importance of diversity and inclusion, including his 2020 BGT performance and subsequent unwarranted controversy. If you require a virtual host, Ashley’s extensive experience presenting television programmes makes him a guaranteed hit – he truly is a personality for all virtual events.
