Hello, my name is James Cresswell. I am a Public Speaker based in Wales, living near Abergavenny in the Brecon Beacons National Park. On this website you will find details of my public speaking, travel photography, publications and tour company (GeoWorld Travel Ltd). I offer a wide range of polar talks and geology talks and you can book me as an after dinner speaker or as a guest speaker for your group, club or organisation. I have previously given talks or lectures to geological societies, schools, U3A groups, Women's institutes and outdoor clubs. I am also a geological tour operator with geotourism tours all over the world; a polar travel consultant, who places people on expedition cruises to the Arctic & Antarctic; and a Mountain Leader/guide in the Brecon Beacons National Park, where I offer a wide range of sightseeing and walking tours. I am very concerned about climate change and to try and do my bit, I carbon offset all the tours I run and the polar voyages I sell. Additionally, I am willing to give my Climate change talk free of charge.
