Jane is passionate about what she does, and would love to speak about it at your event. Jane’s exuberant personality and breadth of experience – much of it rather unusual – has taken her around the world to talk about space, the environment, Biosphere 2, and exploration.
She has presented at gatherings hosted by:
- United Nations Environment Programme
- US Environmental Protection Agency
- The European Space Agency
- The Tattered Cover and many other great bookshops
- The American Association for the Advancement of Science
What client's say ...
Jane did a masterful job … she has a great ability to both entertain and educate her audience.

I recently had the pleasure of hearing Jane Poynter describe her experience of spending two years (and 20 minutes!) inside the Biosphere II. She is an incredibly dynamic and energetic speaker with a truly unique story to tell. The diversity of technical and personal challenges that the Biosphere crew faced while physically isolated from the rest of the world is simply astounding. Listening to Jane describe the day-to day events that they encountered, both routine and unexpected, is like getting a glimpse into the life of future inhabitants residing in a self-sustaining outpost on Mars.

Many thanks for your fascinating presentation to the Brandeis University Mini Book and Author Series on November 9, 2006.
Your experiences as one of the Biosphere 2 "Biospherians" were absolutely remarkable and you made all of us who attended the meeting feel as though we were reliving them with you.
I also want to compliment you on your book "The Human Experiment"; it's not only an excellent account of those years you spent in the facility, it's a great read!
A number of the attendees at our event have called to compliment me on having chosen you to discuss your Iife in the huge glass dome. Thank you again for being a most interesting and fascinating speaker. (l hope our future speakers will live up to the standard you set for us!)
