Key Note or Panel Speakers for Public or Corporate Events

Inspirational Speaker on the Environment and the Climate-crisis.

Donnachadh McCarthy is in demand as a key-note speaker on environmental issues for a wide range of events, uniquely drawing on his personal life experiences. His stories include how he converted his south London Victorian Terrace house into London’s first carbon negative home and how he went from being a ballet dancer to being a leading environmentalist, after he ended up spending time by himself with the Yanomami Indians in the heart of the Amazonian Rainforest.   

Drawing on his wide experience as a home and business eco-auditor, Donnachadh’s presentations inspire his audiences to take further action in their workplaces and home lives.

Fees available by contacting us.

Donnachadh has spoken at a wide range of events from corporate client conferences, national educational and local government conferences to local environmental campaign and Transition Town group public meetings.

Feedback from Presentations

“Just a short note to thank you for a very interesting presentation at last nights meeting. I know that the Members and Officers present gained some valuable information and ideas from you and I have already had the Chairman on the phone to say what a positive and useful meeting she thought it was.”

Rochford District Council

“Everybody I talked to after the meeting was very pleased with your talk. I'm sure it has motivated each of us to reduce our emissions and spread the message. On behalf of FEN I want to thank you very much for giving us a boost at our launch”


“Well done! I loved your speech in the Green Day at the RIBA ! “

“By the way, one of our new admin assistants here told me this morning he knew nothing of green issues - it was all a distant buzzing on the news - until he heard your presentation at Sadlers Wells. He is now suddenly aware, full of questions, looking things up on the web, discussing such options as biofuels with friends, and worrying about how his home country Nigeria is wasting its oil reserves.”

“Thank you, I found the MotivAction seminar very interesting, especially enjoyed the talk by the Eco writer   Donnachadh McCarthy.”

Delegate from Deloitte’s

“I just wanted to thank you again for your contribution to our session on “blueprints for change towards a zero carbon future” last week. You were excellent, and the feedback from the session was extremely positive. Your suggestions on what individuals can do were so simple and obvious and compelling, and you put it all across in such a persuasive, almost humble way. It would be so easy to make people feel bad, but you didn’t, you did it in a way that tried to inspire people to do better which I felt was exactly the right approach.”
