Before joining the BBC's team of presenters in 1999, Lyse spent 15 years as a BBC foreign correspondent with postings in Jerusalem, Amman, Tehran, Islamabad, Kabul and Abidjan.

Her most recent awards include the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Columbia University School of Journalism, and an O.B.E in the Queen’s Honour list for her services to journalism.

The James Cameron Memorial Lecture is given every year in memory of prominent British journalist James Cameron.  The lecture has previously been delivered by a distinguished group of speakers including Ben Bradlee, Michael Grade, Alan Rusbridger, Tony Benn, Greg Dyke, Sir Max Hastings and more recently Christine Ockrent, Jeremy Bowen, Robert Peston, Gary Younge and Gideon Rachman.

The lecture will be followed by a reception for all guests.
