About the Speaker...
When serving as a police officer in the Avon & Somerset Constabulary, Ash founded the Senior Citizen Liaison Team (SCLT) in 2009, to provide tailored safety services for the growing, senior community. Since that time, the SCLT has grown into a charity of numerous volunteers who offer award-winning (Queens Award for Voluntary Service 2015) presentations on senior safety, as well as a an increasing number of general interest presentations on a wide variety of fascinating themes, all filled with original content and well-researched historical information.
As Chair of the Trustee Board of the SCLT Charity, Ash has given literally hundreds of presentations about senior safety and other topics over the last 7-years, to audiences of all sizes (largest audience 2000 at Baitul Mosque in Morden – smallest audience 3 in Rode, Somerset). His talks regularly take him to; PROBUS, 41 Club, Tangent, WI, Rotary, U3A, CSRF and other similar local organisations, to large scale international events such as the International Policing Conference and the German Crime Prevention Congress in 2016. For his charity efforts, he was the recipient of the British Citizen Award for Community Service at an investiture held at the House of Lords in 2015.
Since 2015, the SCLT has added a number of general interest topics to their presentations portfolio, as these allow the charity members to offer a service to groups who may not typically wish for a senior safety presentation, but seek an engaging and highly enjoyable info-tainment presentation from highly experienced and entertaining speakers – all funds raised through the talks given are donated directly to the SCLT Charity.
About his talks...
Ash’s talks last approximately 45-minutes and all equipment is provided by the speaker himself (laptop, projector & speakers), although a table and screen or blank wall will be required at the location. The talks are fully supported by PowerPoint and include video clips and with sound content, and are designed to be engaging for all audiences rather than formal lectures.
Ash has extensive experience of luncheon and after-dinner presentations (dinner jacket can be worn as required), as well as seminars and large-scale conferences. Equally, smaller groups are encouraged to get in touch, as spreading the message is far more important than the size of the audience.
Ash is also able to assist in conference facilitation and guest compère services if your organisation requires a professional edge for an event you may be planning in the future, or if you would like a presenter to represent your group/organisation in a grant application or local commissioning hearing, or even to present the annual report of your group at an AGM or to facilitate at your annual awards ceremony.
Don’t worry about the scale, Ash has hosted a variety of local events as well as international conferences and will be happy to discuss all options.
Donation Only Required – Ash does not make any set-charge for his services, however he asks that groups consider making a voluntary donation to the Senior Citizen Liaison Team Charity if your resources allow – typical donations usually range between £20 – £50. He is based in Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, which can be taken into account when considering a donation RE: distance travelled.
