"The saving grace for the whole week came from Johnny Ball's excellent Think Again" - B Green
Public Speaking is what Johnny does most. He once delivered 40 speeches in two weeks. Recent lectures include, Einstein, Brunel, Dalton, Priestley, Nuclear Power and Waste Management, and four lectures on the Queen Mary 2 for Oxford University. This year he has been running two lectures on Darwin, one on his "Origins" and one entitled "Following Science Religiously" which addressed the conflict, (perhaps exacerbated by Richard Dawkin?), between science and religion, as regards science in a multi-religious classroom.
In writing 23 factually based TV series involving every aspect of Maths and Science, plus countless videos, addresses and presentations, Johnny has aquired a wealth of background knowledge of the history, theory and modern application of technology. He regularly speaks on a huge variety of subjects to audiences as diverse as the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, Women's Institutes, Waste Management conferences, Plastics Industry dinners and the Oxford Union. He is also very effective at KS2/3/4 Maths and Science Inset days.
Whatever the event you have in mind, Johnny is always more than happy to discuss what he might be able to do to make it a memorable and successful experience, irrespective of audience or subject matter.
