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.
I was one of the speakers in the Portsmouth D-Day Museum series of autumn lectures.
I live in Hampshire between Portsmouth and Chichester and am happy to travel anywhere within 30 miles to do day or evening talks, with the exception that from October to March I will only do evening talks within the triangle Portsmouth/Petersfield/Chichester (my night vision is not great!)
About my talks...
All my talks are illustrated by PowerPoint photographs. I have my own projector. 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!
My fee is £60 if venue is within ten miles of my home in Havant, Hampshire. Outside of that area, I require travelling expenses at 40p per mile.
