Len Fisher: Speaker

I am available for lecture tours and one-off lectures to special interest groups. My talks on “the science of everyday life” and “what is science about?” cover topics that include food and cooking, weird and scandalous science, serendipity and discovery, and the life of a scientist in the media.

Len Fisher Talks

Among my credits are two talks at London’s Royal Institution (pictured), a lecture series on the QE2, and many after-dinner talks to clubs and organizations.

Below I give a list of topics from talks delivered during the last six years, with abstracts and (in two cases) my speaker’s notes to give a flavour of my style. You can browse my talks by topic or in chronological order.
