I have spoken at over 150 events and conferences all over the world and delivered workshops both face-to-face and online. I talk about all things digital, transformation, making money in museums and making a ruckus. I try to have a sense of humour and share as many tips and mistakes as I can squeeze into a session.

Want me to speak?

In 2018 I am focusing speaking on making a ruckus with money making in museums including Retail, cafes and events management and transforming service delivery using digital by default. I  typically deliver 30-60min talks on a topic. I can also do a deep dive or workshop on retail. If your local to Bristol and a small community event I can probably speak for free. If you’re further afield  I need you to pay for my expenses, travel and accommodation.

I don’t charge a speaker fee but if you are paying all speakers or providing gifts i’d prefer you donate to our museum trust BMDT.

I produce slides using Google Slides and share the URL with the event who can download and share as you see fit.
