The only thing better than publishing books is talking about publishing books. I enjoy any opportunity to talk about my experience in the industry and share what knowledge I have with other professionals. Publishing is a very generous profession and I am indebted to so many amazing colleagues who have been forthcoming with their expertise.
I like to pay-it-forward by imparting what I know to people who are trying to get into the industry. I've been a guest speaker for the Society of Young Publishers, a guest lecturer at UCL and at publishing conferences.
Do reach out via the contact page to book me for any speaking engagements.
My favourite subjects include:

Marketing and Publicity campaigns
