Speaking

As well as being regularly featured in the media, I often speak at events, participate in panel discussions and run interactive workshops about:

  • social media trends and advice
  • youth engagement
  • digital balance and mindfulness

I also run Screenless Sessions in London as part of my alt_TOGETHER wellbeing network – regular events that encourage putting down your phone and doing something fun and creative.

Please get in touch if you’re interested in booking me for an event, panel or workshop. These can be booked privately for in-house work, or as part of programmes open to the public.

BBC Newsnight’s Paul Mason has written a book called Why It’s Kicking Off Everywhere: The New Global Revolutions in which there’s a little case study about me and my Internet use for social change and general socialising. It also has my overly honest quote ‘I tweet in my dreams’ as a chapter title. You can buy it here.

Kitchen Sink Films and Quark Films have made a wonderful documentary called The Real Social Network about the use of new media and technology in our ‘new generation of protest’. I’m quite a main character in it and awkwardly refer to myself as ‘the Queen of Twitter’. Watch a preview, get more information or find a screening here.
