International conference calls

and workshops


I am always happy to consider attendance at children's book conferences or events.


My work can be presented in the form of ideas and journeys that inspire my creativitiy.


I can use my stock photography and published works as a way to celeberate and illuminate African culture to a variety of audiences - young and old.


Whether discussing and presenting my work to academics or practitioners, or delivering activities to children, parents and carers. I am happy to devise sessions to best meet the the needs of your event.


If you have an interest at state or regional level in tours of my work across a variety of settings and locations, just let me know.


I can work with you to generate sessions that compliment the aims of your programme.


Please use my contact page to let me know about your events or conference and I can send you my thoughts on timings and fees accordingly...without any commitment at this stage.
