Compering with conscience

On the non-corporate side of the fence I’ve compered events for many organisations and am proud to be the official event compere for Smart Works Reading.

Speaking that stands out

From social mobility to mobile devices and virtual-reality to the actual reality of modern-day parenting,  my wide frame of reference and relatable style offers a refreshing change that wakes up audiences and keeps them engaged. I’ve even got material that demonstrates an unexpected link between AI and cervical screening.

Champion of change

As a straight-up example of being your own change and demonstrating that starting stand up in your 40’s can be a great idea, I challenge misconceptions and motivate others to follow their own path via my ‘It’s too risky!’ workshop and ‘Reasons to be Cheerful’ books.

How can I help you?
