After a long career as a medical scientist I like to talk in an entertaining and accessible way about my interests of antibiotic resistance, ‘guts’ and inflammation. In latter years I have researched the history of the late Georgian period and I talk about interesting but little known characters, including the Grand Old Duke of York, who transformed the lives of the British soldier; one of his many mistresses Mary Anne Clarke who caused his resignation after a major political scandal, William Wilberforce who helped abolish the slave trade and Spencer Percival, the only British Prime Minister to be assassinated.
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.
