Hey, I'm Neil Bennion
Author, traveller and
My main thing is writing books
Travelogues like Dancing Feat
I don’t know why I used the plural, as I’ve only released one so far (Dancing Feat: One Man’s Mission to Dance like a Colombia, about how I overcame my dancefloor incompetence by dancing my way around Colombia).
Perhaps it’s because I secretly know there are more in the pipeline*
* it’s a special book-shaped pipeline
But also travel guides
Like the indie travel handbook Amazing Poland, which I wrote during my 8 ish-year stint living there.
I'm also a professional copywriter & digital marketer
Indeed I scripted, voiced and produced the video ad you see here. Even the slurp is mine.
So if you need someone to help you with messaging, brand voice and high-converting copy whilst making self-deprecating jokes and random comments about otters … get in touch.
I do and make a bunch of other things, too
Articles and blog posts
I sometimes write articles for print media with my own photos.
I also occasionally blog (I did say ocassionally).
And I also blurt out the odd YouTube video.
“Oh look at me, I’ve done a TEDx talk aren’t I fancy?“
Ha! No. Well okay maybe a little bit.
I also emceed TEDxWrocław for a year because people are too trusting.
And the occasional podcast and video
I like to ramble on about living and working abroad and the whole life-less-ordinary thing in a variety of different formats.
Oh, and I'm a big fan of quirky little projects
and mini adventures
Learning to dance sevillanas from YouTube then partying it up at the Feria de Abril in Seville.
Spending a day taking random trams in Prague to see where I’d end up.
Going on a global exploration of alcohol culture whilst remaining completely teetotal (without the teetotal bit I think we probably just call that ‘backpacking’).
Swimming all the way to Japan*
*I may not have done this particular one
Want me on your podcast / radio show / interplanetary transmission?
I can bother your audience with completely unsustainable opinions on all manner of subjects, such as Colombia … Poland … the alcohol-free lifestyle … productivity … and much more (well, okay, a bit more).
