Travel, geography, and environment guest speaker

Guest public speaker

David Edwards, guest speaker I am a guest public speaker who has given hundreds of talks in the UK, America and Europe on travel, adventure, geography and environmental issues. I am a popular guest speaker and conference speaker for lecture societies, companies, travel fairs, expedition ships, adventure shows, U3A groups, arts festivals, and schools based on my travels and expeditions around the world, and illustrated with high quality images and video.

Public speaking experience

I'm on Instagram (selection below), and tweet on topics related to my talks on Twitter.

"As we pay our speakers for their presentations, it is rare for me to write and thank them. In fact this is only the second occasion I have written in my ten-year tenure as programme secretary, and believe me, we've had some excellent speakers. An unprecedented number of our members commented to me on the all round excellence of your presentation. I feel sure it won't be long before we are welcoming you once again - the members will make sure of that!"
