Public Speaking

I enjoy public speaking and am keen to engage with all types of audiences, from school children to interested scientists, to businesses to music festival-goers. I have taken exhibitions on deep sea creatures to science festivals, explored underwater soundscapes on-stage at a music festival, and told the stories of talented women working in marine scientists subjects both now, and in the past.

These include:
