Thank you...for your fantastic talk about the impact our food choices have and how we can make positive change.
— Attendee of the 2017 Southampton Hub Sustainable Development Conference.
Your presentation...was very interesting and added an important dimension to our understanding of food insecurity work in the UK.
— Professor Valerie Tarasuk, University of Toronto, Principal Investigator @ PROOF Research Programme

I love to spread the word about the power of good food and have spoken at a wide variety of events, from community meetings to large international conferences.

Previous speaking engagements include a Challenge Europe event organised by the British Council in Stockholm, aimed at inspiring young people to get involved in environmental projects, and the PROOF Food Insecurity Research conference in Toronto, Canada.

I take my inspiration from over a decade in the food movement, and my expertise in community food programmes and household food insecurity, both in the UK and internationally. 


I can present on a wide range of topics, including:

  • How to stay resilient as a social entrepreneur
  • Why good food should be at the heart of every community
  • Insights from a decade in the food movement
  • How to start the best community food project
  • The growth of food aid in the UK & what we can learn from the US & Canada.

Get in touch to discuss me speaking at your event.

Members and partners found Seb Mayfield’s recent talk at a Big Conversation #EndHungerUK event inspiring and insightful. The learning and good practice from his talk was particularly useful to local food aid providers and charitable organisations.
