Interview with Jeremy Black

What is the message you hope people take away from your presentations?
That human beings make a difference. That history is interesting.

How are your keynotes unique?
I talk completely without notes.

What is the most unique experience you have had as a keynote speaker?
Speaking in the pitch dark for 40 minutes due to a power cut, and continuing to hold the audience’s attention. Also talking to 7000 at one go in an American baseball stadium.

What is the most memorable topic you have spoken about?
The future of the world over the fifty years.

How do you manage to make history interesting?
By underlining its contingent quality and by treating the audience as adults so that they understand there is no one fixed answer.
