David Acheson 



David Acheson is a Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford, and the
author of a fantastic little book called "1089 and All That".
He enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame when he appeared live on
BBC's Tomorrow's World to demonstrate his explanation of the
Indian Rope Trick.
David has been awarded a National Teaching Fellowship in recognition of 'his outstanding contribution to learning and teaching'. He plans to use the award to attempt a breakthrough in the communication of mathematics, particularly to students who are about to start at university. 
Upcoming talk locations. Larger dots mean sooner, red dots are already past. 
Having said that, David is one of my recommended Other Speakers.
