After a long career as a medical scientist I like to talk in an entertaining and accessible way about important healthcare issues such as antibiotic resistance, ‘guts’ and inflammation. In latter years I have researched the history of the late Georgian period and I talk about the Royal scandal involving the Grand Old Duke of York and his mistresses Mary Anne Clarke. After recently moving to South Wales I give a talk about the important Welsh hero of Waterloo, Sir Thomas Picton. And another presentation concerns how Welsh industries of coal, copper and wool fuelled the growth of slavery in the British West Indies and how William Wilberforce and others helped to abolish the Atlantic trade in human cargo.
About my talks...
For my talk I require a screen and table. I can bring along a projector, laptop and other artefacts as appropriate.
My fee is normally £70 for a 45-60 minute presentation, depending on geographical location, with travelling expenses of 20p/m if over 20 miles from my base.
If you are a small group, please contact me and we can usually reach a compromise.
