As co-founder of the marine conservation organisation Friends for Sharks, I organised and delivered a 10-month global speaking tour in aid of shark conservation.

This involved:

  • Finding and managing business sponsors

  • Pitching and booking 87 talks in 8 countries for over 7000 people

  • Producing communications and social content

  • Creating engaging talks and delivering them

 

All without a budget and whilst sometimes living in a van….

As part of this tour, I also worked with Projects Abroad to create and deliver a series of shark conservation lectures for their international volunteers in Fiji, Thailand and Cambodia.
