Type Of Speaker


Steve Backshall gave an excellent talk that had us all enthralled from the start. He provided the perfect blend of career highlights interspersed with personal memories from his childhood. We didn’t want it to end but when it did he generously gave his time to allow photos and selfies with his many fans.

Please pass on our thanks to Steve for his performance at our Carbon Journey event. Not only was he totally engrossing and fantastically well-received, but he was really friendly and totally professional. We hope he had as good a time with us as we did hosting him.
