Hi Toby,
 
Searching the term "compress pdf online" will give you plenty of free services that do just what you are looking for. I would suggest you verypdf.com as a simple and clean online compressor with some nice options for you to choose so you don't ruin your PDF with too big compression.
 
However, you should keep in mind your PDF will lose its quality. Images will be compressed a lot and fonts will be optimized. If the quality of the images is important to you, maybe you should consider optimizing your PDF file offline. 
 
Depending on the OS you are using, on Windows you can do that via Adobe Acrobat using the option "PDF Optimizer". This option is placed in the Advanced menu. On Mac OS X you can do that using the Preview.app. While saving your file as a PDF you will be given an option to reduce the size of your PDF.
 
If you're not satisfied with the compression and the quality of the compressed PDF, you may want to consider splitting your document into smaller parts and uploading it like that.
