Speaking

I’ve given over thirty talks and workshops at conferences and grassroots meetups across Europe. My main topics are front-end development, especially emerging technologies, 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.

Past Events

My full speaking history is on Lanyrd, and you can see (most of) my slides on Speakerdeck.

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 do not 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.
