I would like to introduce Speakezee www.speakezee.org, an initiative launched by Professor Bruce Hood (Professor of Developmental Psychology in Society, School of Experimental Psychology).
Speakezee.org is a website which brings together event organisers and academic speakers. At its heart is the desire to help more academics engage with the public and to make it easier for organisers to find relevant experts to speak at their events and seminars for specialist audiences. I encourage all academic and research staff to register themselves and the talks they can deliver.
