After Dinner

Stephen is an accomplished speaker and has spoken, lectured, performed, chaired and compèred in many different settings and for a wide range of groups, companies and organisations.

In addition to one-off occasions he has also presented full-day workshops on communication in dental practice and has taken part in radio and television programmes including interviews, 'phone ins and features.


As with writing, Stephen's approach is to undertake thorough research before embarking on a project. This applies to his lecturing, which includes subjects as diverse as communication in dentistry, dentistry and the media, and smoking cessation.

He has spoken at BDA conferences and FDI congresses as well as extensively throughout the UK.
