As an experienced public speaker I am in regular demand from local societies, PROBUS groups, arts centres and Women’s Institutes amongst others. My PhD is in history: I was an Ofsted inspector for 19 years and also inspected schools in Abu Dhabi. I have continued historical research throughout my life and I have been an invited speaker at conferences organised by the Imperial War Museum.
About my talks...
All my talks are illustrated by PowerPoint photographs. I have my own projector though I am also happy to bring talks on a memory stick and use an installed system. Audiences need to provide a screen or pale wall for projection. I have done it onto a brick wall with a noticeboard in the middle but it did affect the quality somewhat!
I live in Chichester, West Sussex and will travel anywhere within 20 miles to do talks, although between October and March I only take bookings for daylight talks unless your venue is less than 10 miles from me.
My fee is currently £60, increasing to £70 from 1.9.2020. I charge 40p a mile travel expenses.
