Booking Tony Watkins as a speaker

Tony Watkins

I love helping people learn. I have taught, trained, and preached in a wide range of contexts from church groups through to academic contexts and international conferences over many years. I welcome invitations to speak, especially on contemporary media and the Bible (particularly the Old Testament prophets and wisdom literature). You might like to look at this page which goes into more detail about the range of subjects. I am comfortable engaging with both Christian and secular audiences, and aim to help people learn in a variety of styles: multimedia, interactive workshops, facilitating learning through small groups, mentoring individuals, formal lectures, etc.


I don't charge a fee for speaking (except for educational institutions and commercial organisations). However, I am not paid any salary, so would encourage you to consider making a donation to help cover my costs.
