My name is Jon Fraser King and I’m an experienced public speaker. I’m the founder of the Shrewsbury Darwin Festival and ran the celebrations of Darwin’s bicentenary in his home county of Shropshire during 2009.

I’ve devised and led walks around his home town since 2004 and specialise in lectures on Darwin’s early life and influences.

I have assisted the British Council and during a speaking tour to the Bay Area in 2008, I spoke at Stanford University’s Darwin Day and addressed a session at the AAAS Annual Convention in San Francisco.

I was a member of the Darwin200 partnership, led by The Natural History Musuem and  have contributed to Radio & TV stations across the world.

I was a presenter on BBC Local Radio for fifteen years and presently work in communications and PR.
