I'm super passionate about public speaking, and am most comfortable on stage, telling stories and planting seeds. 

I talk on a broad range of subjects in the science, tech, business, startup and culture fields - particularly focusing on the disruption of the science sector, and how those changes in research are affecting people and businesses around the world. I have experience talking at large scale festivals and business conferences, through to small workshops and intimate events, and am always up for a new challenge!

If you're looking for someone to get people thinking a little differently, challenge what 'thought leaders' are saying, and generally get the audience excited about a given topic, get in touch.


"I've worked in the conference/talks business for many years and Gemma is one of the strongest speakers I have encountered. She is confident, inspiring and extremely genuine, which helps the audience connect with and relate to her.  In my last event at the Royal Geographical Society, I decided to open the conference with Gemma's talk as she is so inspiring that I knew she would draw the audience in and set the tone for the evening. I would highly recommend her for any speaking engagement."

"Living and breathing your field is one thing, but what is rarer is being able to articulate it - that is why I asked Gemma to speak at TEDxClapham. She explained a complex topic with refreshing simplicity and made her subject matter accessible to everyone in the audience.  Gemma brought something totally unique to the lineup and look forward to having her speak again."

"Gemma is an inspiring speaker, carefully arguing her case with clarity and bite. She knows how to bring an audience with her, and indeed won a wrestling belt when she did so at our event The Tech Off at Cannes Lions! She was so good we’ve had her at two further events in London, and I would happily have her on every time. I look forward to learning new things when she’s on stage. Highly recommended."

"Gemma has been a highlight speaker at a few events I've produced. She never fails to captivate the crowd with her strong point of view and passion for her topic. She is a natural on stage, because of all the preparation."
