Guest public 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 have been a speaker for clients such as the Royal Geographical Society, ICI, lecture societies, travel clubs, walking clubs, luncheon clubs, City of London banks, The Geographical Association, The Alpine Club, The National Trust for Scotland, Radio 5 Live, Radio 4, the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, over 50 universities, the Royal Dublin Society, and state and private schools. I use personal anecdotes and humour to deliver insights that entertain, surprise and inform the audience.
