Adrian is available to deliver talks and presentations to a variety of audiences. He charges a modest fee for corporate / commercial events which in turn supports the work of the social enterprise Innovate Malvern CIC.
As a STEM Ambassador and a past Volunteer Business Advisor for Young Enterprise, he is happy to speak pro bono at schools, universities and at public outreach events where possible.
In particular Adrian routinely gives talks about:
- The journey of a technology entrepreneur, based on his own experience and his book Start to Exit.
- Science, technology and innovation in the world around us, based on his upcoming book An A to Z of Innovation here on Planet Earth.
- A new, highly visual and interactive talk about smart wearables based on Wear Next? and featuring Adrian’s Raspberry Pi NeoMatrix jacket.
