I talk about the internet, about how to deal with social media, about the accelerating pace of change, and occasionally about tea cozies.

I've spoken at the Children's Media Conference, the Eurovision TV Summit in Lucerne, and at Youth Marketing Strategy.

I've appeared at Thinking Digital every year since 2009, the only regular speaker at “the UK's answer to TED”.

I've also been an occasional talking head on Sky News, ITV, Bloomberg TV and Al Jazeera English, and I write occasionally for the Guardian's technology blog.

If you'd like me to speak at your event, contact Diana Boulter at DBA Speakers, who handles my speaking engagements.

Tom Scott is an absolute delight to work with. He brings massive energy and creativity to every talk I've seen him do.” — Herb Kim, producer of Thinking Digital and 15 TEDx events
“Tom's talk was a great success and he got us all really animated. His presentation was a brilliant example of how to effectively communicate an idea in a short space of time. His talk had us debating privacy issues for hours afterwards. It was, without doubt, the best seminar we've had.” Dave Miller, RIMAD Seminars, University of Bedfordshire
“People LOVED your presentation. I don't mean that in some overblown marketing-person way – so many came up to me afterwards and said so.” — Luke Mitchell, Youth Marketing Strategy Conference
“Brilliant! Tom was entertaining and really well-received by the audience. A great way to close our event – we want him to come again!” — Bettakultcha at the National Media Museum, Bradford, UK
