Upcoming Events and Talks

Those events which are open to the public are always listed here, so please keep coming back to see if I am doing a public lecture near you.

I also appear at a lot of events which are not open to the public. To book me for after-dinner speeches, keynote speeches at conferences or training events, authoring/editing books, or for anything else, please contact one of my agents.

Sorry, at the moment I have no scheduled events which will be open to the general public, please come back and check again soon.
