Media and Talks

I am available to do presentations, podcasts and other media - on my journey to be an author, on the causes of climate change, nature rewilding and most importantly the common-sense solutions to climate change.  I can present using my own photographs from Scotland and overseas.

I have also teamed up with three international authors - Authors and Educators on a Mission.  We are all passionate about making a difference for climate action and environmental education.   We offer a powerful series of educational and informative talks, discussions, question and answer sessions and presentations on climate change, nature and the environment - for young people or adults.  I can speak about the solutions to climate change, Alan Hesse on nature and community based solutions, Gloria Barnett on marine conservation and Kevin Albin on outdoor and conservation expeditions with young people.

We can offer individual or joint talks at conferences or podcasts or we can partner with your event.  Please contact me to discuss further - I can send you a 2 page brochure or look at this website.
