Life peer and fertility expert Professor the Lord Winston – Robert Winston – is probably best known to the British public as a presenter of such TV programmes as The Human Mind, The Human Body, Your Life in Their Hands, Walking with Cavemen, Making Babies, Secret Life of Twins, Child of Our Time and Superhuman.
As a motivational speaker, Labour peer Lord Winston of Hammersmith (a title he has held since 1995) draws not only on his expertise as a scientist but also his skill of making the subject understandable and accessible.
As well as being professor of fertility studies at Imperial College, London University, director of NHS research and development for Hammersmith Hospital, and Chancellor of Sheffield Hallam University since 2001, Winston has been chair of the House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology and a board member of the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology. He is frequently seen in the upper house speaking about science, medicine, education and the arts.
A Fellow of both the Academy of Medical Sciences and the Royal Society of Arts and the recipient of numerous awards, Robert Winston is the perfect motivational speaker for any event, with his trademark vocal tones, his clear style of annunciation and his unrivalled experience in gynaecological microsurgery and reproductive medicine which have achieved major breakthroughs in IVF and genetics.
Among the impacts that Winston’s work has had are children of parents with a history of genetic conditions – such as cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and haemophilia and – now being born without fatal illnesses. Winston’s team of scientists is also working on how to grow human eggs outside the body, which is expected to make IVF procedures so much easier.
Among the events that Robert has been a motivational speaker at are the Cheltenham Science Festival, the Winchester Festival of the Arts, the Edinburgh International Book Festival and the Elgiva Theatre in Chesham on What Makes Us Happy? Reading the Human Mind.
