I do about 20 talks a year to commercial audiences. Most of my presentations are about the topics covered on this web site and in my newsletter but I am very happy to research new areas of interest, such as the global food system or trends in consumption.
I have spoken in the last year to groups as diverse as a Middle Eastern national oil company, the FT Energy Transition conference, the Research Council of Norway, a Dutch supplier of equipment to the offshore oil industry, a New Scientist event, Lancaster University, a global audit and consulting company and a large sovereign wealth fund.
My aim is to provide interesting new ideas, firmly based on quantitative analysis, for both specialist and general audiences. I hope I communicate with energy, enthusiasm and clarity. I usually introduce a small amount of general science and technology but at a level easily understood by everybody.
Here is a quote from the organiser of a recent conference:
Many thanks for your time and presentation Chris. It was everything I’d hoped it would be and more. I had the best feedback I’ve ever heard from delegates after your talk – they were truly inspired. (February 2019)
My talks start from the perspective that it is overwhelmingly important that global decarbonisation is rapid and, second, that the existing energy companies are well-placed to profitably assist in this transition. Many of my recent assignments have come from businesses operating in the oil and gas sector although I am delighted, of course, to work for any group pushing for a better climate future.
I am represented by Maria Franzoni. Contact details are here.
