Speaking

I’ve giv­en talks and work­shops at con­fer­ences and grass­roots mee­tups across Europe. My main top­ics are emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies, espe­cial­ly regard­ing front-end devel­op­ment, but have talked on diverse sub­jects includ­ing user expe­ri­ence, behav­iour­al psy­chol­o­gy, metaphors and comics — videos of many of my talks are linked below.

If you’d like me to come and give a talk at a group or con­fer­ence you attend or organ­ise, please email peter@broken-links.com. I have a few require­ments and pref­er­ences.

Requirements and Preferences

I don’t have a set speak­ing fee. If your con­fer­ence is free or not-for-prof­it, I’ll hap­pi­ly talk for free. If it’s for-prof­it, I’ll accept your stan­dard fee. My only require­ment is that, if out­side of Lon­don, you pay for my trav­el and accom­mo­da­tion. I don’t require expens­es (beyond trav­el), a stipend, or gifts (although, of course, any of those would be welcome).

If I’m speak­ing for free, I reserve the right to pro­mote one of my books or oth­er work; if paid, I will do so only with your explic­it per­mis­sion. I will always do my best to pro­mote the event in advance, and pro­vide my slides and fol­low-up mate­ri­als afterwards.

I pre­fer to present from my own lap­top, and like to edit my slides until the moment of the talk itself, so would ask not to have to sub­mit slides in advance except for gen­er­al review. I will agree the sub­ject with you well in advance of the event.
