Speaking on Map Design: Public Lectures

My lectures are lively, entertaining, factually accurate and always well-received. Recipients include
the general public, professionals and academics. Specialist audiences include computer scientists, cartograpers, graphic designers and psychologists. I am always happy to discuss invitations. For non-profit bodies, I can speak for no payment provided that expenses are covered and I have an opportunity to sell my books. For more details, contact me by email.

Satisfied customers include the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Design Museum, the London Transport Museum, the Sign Design Society, the National Trust, the University of the Third Age, Café Scientifique, the Permanent Way Society and the London Underground Railway Society.

For suggested topics, follow the links below. These are lectures that I have already delivered and they are all available for re-use, updated as appropriate. Of course, lectures on any aspect of schematic maps are also possible.

I recommend one of the three talks here as good, accessible introductions for a general, non-specialist British audience. Their focus (London, the World’s cities, decorative arts) is likely to have widespread appeal.

The lectures here are just as accessible for a non-specialist audience, but their focus is a little bit more esoteric. Choose from these if you would like to give your audience something equally lively and entertaining, but a little bit different.
