Ben Sparks' talk locations.
Larger dots mean sooner,
red dots are already past.

A maths teacher by training, Ben has previously passed the time by juggling (and lobbing diabolos really really high), playing his guitar and singing round the world, trying to design a piece of radar recognition software that learns on the job, and growing his hair/beard.

Ben gives talks to a wide range of audiences: ranging from workshops for 12 year olds to teachers conferences, and pretty much anything in between. Recent talk titles:
  • Creation Of Number
  • Rumours of Other Worlds
  • The Sacred Geometry Of Chance
  • Mathematical Magic.

He has a website at and he can be contacted on benjamin.sparks[at]

Ben is one of the Other Speakers I can recommend.


Based in Dorset in the south of England.

The map at right shows the rough locations of some of Ben's upcoming talks, but it doesn't give much indication of when. The list gives exact dates, and the "map" at the bottom of this page gives the details in a different way.

You need to check his home page for details:
