Speaking Engagements

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:

  • Sales: direct to consumer + trade

  • Marketing and Publicity campaigns

  • What publishers are looking for in a book

  • What it's like working for an independent press versus one of the big houses

  • How to get into publishing 

  • How to get ahead in publishing once you've got your foot in the door
