He lectured on Greek teaching at the Keynote "Outstanding Latin Teaching" conference in January 2017, and will be speaking again at the "Achieving top grades at GCSE Latin" conference in November 2017.

Ed chaired the education panel at the Conservative Party Conference 2016, and will be doing so again in 2017. He also debated "Do we need Classics for the 21st century?" at this year's Battle of Ideas festival at the Barbican.

Ed is available to speak on educational matters at conferences and debates, as well as to give after-dinner speeches.
