About me...

I am a retired qualified lecturer and have been lecturing and giving talks for over 30 years, The talks I give have been fully researched by myself and some include photographs acquired from around the world.

About my Talks...

My talks all use power point and videos, where relevant. The slides are richly illustrated and, for clarity, I keep the number of words on each slide to a minimum. Talks typically are an hour long and I am always very happy to take questions. I have a lap-top, projector, stand and microphone and will require a screen or clear wall.

Fee:

Talk fees are £60 plus reasonable travelling expenses at 35p per mile, when travelling more than 15 miles from Barnet, Hertfordshire. I am happy to travel to within the Greater London area as well as Hertfordshire, Middlesex, Essex, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey and Kent. I am able to fill in at short notice, if available, and I can speak evenings or daytime.
