Short and entertaining introductions to bees on events. Why they’re important, how they live and what you can do to help them.
What kind of events are possible?
Generally, I’m asked for talks on annual assemblies of associations or within workshops. It’s also possible to do some demonstrations on a summer festival or similar events.
What topics do you cover in your talks?
This depends on the audience. A general public (e.g. on a summer festival) may enjoy some information on bee biology, how diverse they are and what you can do to help them. Beekeepers
most often ask me for talks on varroa biology or on risks for bees in agricultural landscapes.
Gardeners are interested in bee pollination and how to help bees in their gardens. Also farmers are interested in pollination and how it increases their crop yield and quality. Plant protection managers want to know about practical measures to avoid risks for pollinators. And veterinarians want introductions into bee diseases, available treatments and good beekeeping practices.
In what languages can you give talks?
I’m fluent in English, Spanish, German and Italian, so talks are possible in these languages. My French is a bit “rusty”, but if it’s ok to give the talk in English, I will understand your questions in French and will try to answer them in your language.
For any other questions, contact me and I will be happy to help!
