Max Whitby is a multiple BAFTA award winning producer and founder of several successful digital media companies (he is current CEO of Touch Press), he’s also a scientist who has researched nanomaterials with a PhD in Chemistry.

His talk is an interactive treat on the tenuous relationship between the periodic table, bumblebees (a personal obsession) and Shakespeare’s Sonnets. As well as sharing his passion for collecting, Max's talk features a beautiful and dangerous chemistry experiment, performed live on stage (The Phosphorus Sun). Thanks goes to Dr Hal Sosabowski and Dave Campbell from Brighton University for safely conducting the demonstration.
