Booking Neil

I enjoy speaking at events within my sphere of expertise, and speak regularly in Europe, Africa and the US.

Do get in touch if you would like me to prepare a quotation for you — I prefer to give a fixed price (excluding travel expenses) for an event, reflecting the amount of preparation needed, as well as travelling and speaking time, but I can also work on an hourly basis if you prefer. Travel expenses are on top of this, but I can build them in to a quotation if you prefer.

If you would you like to make a pitch for me to speak at your event at a reduced rate or without charge, feel free to do so, but please do not be disappointed if I politely decline. Unless I happen to be near where your event is to be held for other reasons, I would still need my travel expenses covering.

Diversity is important to me, and different perspectives make events more interesting and thought-provoking. Although diversity extends beyond merely gender, I am not a fan of all-male panels, or events where most speakers are male. If your event is a technical one, I would expect to see a code of conduct. (Codes of conduct do not seem to have entered the world of legal conferences yet but, if your event has one, so much the better!)

I like to make my slides and notes available for download from my website after an event, so that they can reach the broadest possible audience. If you are looking for exclusive rights to distribute what I produce, please let me know up front.

If you would like to discuss me speaking at your event, please do email me, and I will get back to you promptly.
