Dragons’ Den host Dianne Buckner was part of the team that launched the popular CBC Television program and has been its host since it premiered. In addition, she’s been a business correspondent for both The National and CBC’s long-running business program, Venture, travelling internationally and across North America to share the stories of entrepreneurs and disruptors of all kinds.

Buckner has interviewed prime ministers, CEOs, and innovators of all types. She brings a depth of knowledge — along with a sense of fun — when asked to host and MC events. She also has extensive experience as a moderator for panel discussions.
