“Colin provided a provocative and alternative perspective and responded masterfully to a series of challenges from both the moderator and the audience on how to stimulate new thinking”

Tina Woods, Organiser, GIANT Health Event

“Colin engaged the children from the offset with his mind blowing facts and fantastic visuals. He pitched the content perfectly and his workshop inspired us all to become space experts!’

Dan Cadman, Class teacher, Ashley School

“The kids were really engaged with your talk – they were talking about it all afternoon!“

Below: One of my key messages when I speak to businesses and conferences is that interdisciplinary collaboration is the key to innovation

I’m an astronomy speaker and author who has talked to well over a quarter of a million people about the universe, ranging from schools and the public to conferences and businesses. My books have sold more than 100,000 copies worldwide and I've written over 100 popular science articles for publications including The Guardian, New Scientist, BBC Focus and the European Space Agency.

In 2014 I was awarded runner-up in the European Astronomy Journalism Prize and I am also a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. I’ve talked about the wonders of the universe on Sky News, BBC News and Radio 5Live and been quoted in national newspapers including The Daily Telegraph and The Observer.

My other adventures have seen me climb the biggest radio telescope in the UK, stargaze from the Sahara desert and abseil my old school’s science block for charity.
