Need me at your event? I’m available.
I’m really looking forward to announcing my public speaking dates for late 2021 and early 2022 soon! I hope to be coming to a festival, expo, or bookstore near you.
Praise for Emma’s Public Speaking: “Emma Byrne has the unique ability to make science and the lives of scientists accessible to everyone. Making people cry during her description of Alan Turing’s death and explaining Genetic Algorithms in an entertaining yet comprehensible way are just two examples of her skills both as a writer and a presenter.” Dr Simone Stumpf, City University
“Emma was very knowledgeable about her subject and made it easy to understand for a science novice like me!”
“Emma’s talk about Alan Turing was perfectly balanced between his troubled life and his ground-breaking work.”
“Emma Byrne gave an engaging and lively talk about Alan Turing and his life. She succeeded in making familiar material seem new, exciting and even moving. She answered audience questions with wit and enthusiasm. Highly recommended. Five stars”
