Invited Talks/Seminars/Conferences

I only really started taking note of the importance of these in late 2013 so the list of things gets very sketchy prior to 2013. Even after that it is incomplete. Suffice to say I gave a lot more talks prior to 2013 than are detailed here. Ordered by year of presentation.
