Oxford Talks, Oxford
Free Minds, Newport
Just for the record:
Besides speaking in several, I have run conferences in three countries: Australia, England, and Wales.
I had welcome support from a very few of the alternative media and downright hindrance from mainstream. One published my ad days after the conference, others ignored my emails and blanked my phone calls. Mike Soper, the media rep for Contact International UFO Research (the longest running UFO group in the UK), who, at the time, was the go-to guy with all the mainstream media, attempted to drum up interest for the Oxford Talks in all the local media, and elsewhere…and met a wall with all of them. “I have never had this happen before; It’s like a D-Notice has been put on anything to do with what you do Ellis.”
At all of the venues I had some wonderful assistance (thank you) and we had some fabulous presentations; only two of the speakers I’d not met previously, Susan G. White, and Graham Hancock.
