Should your institution wish to hire me for public speaking, please get in touch via the email on the contacts page. I have done public speaking several occasions to students and emerging filmmakers at colleges, universities and film festivals. I’m open to sharing my journey in film and television, and offering advice and support to people in the creative industry.
Michael Saker | Media and Communications - City, University of London
"I have been fortunate enough to have Dean come and deliver several different talks to my students about his time in the media. Dean’s knowledge of the television and film industry is exceptional, and his ability to parlay this understanding into focused and engaging lectures is incomparable. Not only did Dean construct meaningful sessions aligned to the needs of the students, but he also stayed behind to speak to individuals who wanted more guidance. Simply put, I cannot recommend him enough!"
Dr. Caleb Turner (PGCHE, FHEA) | Assistant Professor of Film Studies - Richmond, The American International University in London
“Dean’s extensive knowledge and experience of production, creativity and networking in film and television was instrumental in inspiring my students to really apply all of the ‘theory’ to the world beyond the campus, particularly in thinking about the right first steps for building up their own professional profiles. Having the opportunity to learn from his body of work and informed advice was an invaluable addition to our film course, and Dean provided an engaging Q&A session that gave each student the chance to further hone their own goals and aspirations (as well as the chance to ask more questions after the talk, which the students really appreciated indeed). I highly recommend Dean as both an exceptional speaker and true specialist in the industry.”
Rich Warren | Festival Director - Encounters Film Festival
“Dean has hosted several inspiring masterclasses and Q&A’s for us in recent years charting his journey through the film industry and his experiences with script development film production. Our audience is predominantly made up of new and emerging talent who have found Dean’s approach relaxed and informative.”
Victoria Ijeh | Founder - Iconic Steps
"Dean held an inspiring talk with our students and a very lively Q&A, it was great having Dean who was able to break down what he does in a relatable way."
