Dean is a multi-award-winning scientist and science communicator. He has given countless public lectures at a variety of events, in front of audiences of hundreds to thousands. Whether this has involved working with schools interested in palaeontology, or lecturing at specialist societies and giving keynote speeches, he continues to promote palaeontology through various outreach projects.
Some key public lectures have included giving the keynote for the ‘CENTA Festival of Science’, announcing the discovery of a new British dinosaur (Dracoraptor) at the National Museum of Wales, and giving the keynote lecture for the Junior Chamber International (JCI). He has also given lectures at the The Royal Institution of Great Britain Faraday Theatre and the Cheltenham Science Festival, where one member of the public stated “That was the best lecture of the festival!” As Dean also speaks in schools, he receives letters from teachers and children, one of which said: “You have inspired me to carry on my goal and never give up." A testament of Dean's abilities to help engage others to follow their passion and achieve great things.
Dean is passionate about science communication and sharing palaeontology with people of all ages. His accessible, laid-back and fun approach to science make him a much sought after speaker and he is available for talks, presentations and corporate events whether these are lectures, panel discussions or after dinner speeches etc. Much of Dean’s science communication and outreach includes work with the media.
