Greg has been giving inspiring, engaging keynotes at events around the world for 12+ years, talking at conferences, schools, international festivals & more.

Two talks are based on his scientific adventures:

'Deep Ocean Lab'
'Everest Lab' ...

Greg has given these talks to family audiences at festivals, in primary and seconday schools, to A-Level students in sixth forms, professional adults at conferences, and to groups of 900 GCSE students... so he's very happy to adapt the level to fit your particular audience.

He regularly hosts events and awards ceremonies and currently has three talks available for schools, festivals and events to book:

... and the third 'The Future Of Food' is based on his recent BBC World News TV Series and uncovers how we could feed the potential 10b on the planet by 2050.

You can see his previous talks here.

What happens as you dive further and further into the deep, dark ocean?

Join YouTuber and BBC TV & Radio Presenter Greg Foot for the story of his scientific adventure to the deep.


With experiments and stunning videos, Greg will show you the high-tech submersibles that took him down a crazy 1000ft into the Twilight Zone. He’ll explain the importance of our oceans, and - thanks to Greg’s work with the Blue Planet II team - uncover the effect we’re having on them.


You’ll also get the chance to meet a creature from the deep!



What happens to your body when you push it somewhere it’s not built to go – to the top of the world?

Join YouTuber and BBC TV & Radio Presenter
Greg Foot for the story of his scientific adventure to the world’s highest pop-up lab at Everest Base Camp.


With summit kit, interactive experiments, and stunning videos, Greg will uncover how a group of scientists and medics braved the thin freezing air to perform cutting edge research that turns our ideas about medicine upside down.
