About Ian Maber -The Teller of Tales...
Ian Maber – Cert Ed. , B.A. , M.A. , Dip. A.D. , Professor Emeritus University of Evansville Indiana USA
After teaching for over 20 years and travelling the world, working with many high profile companies in technology and the entertainment industry for a further 12 years, I have now decided to take an early retirement and relax a little more.
During my career I have been involved with some of the most well know names in entertainment and high end technology inc -Disney, Dreamworks, Sony, BBC. Apple, Microsoft and Intel.
I was the co-creator of a multi award winning software -nominated for a BAFTA.
Having worked in over 43 countries and lived in several including India, Canada and the U.S. I have always been interested in storytelling and presenting. I love to create worlds of imagination and take the audience on a journey, so they can become immersed in the story.
I have written several short stories, poems, novels and even a script (even thought that was hard work!) and have also been working on an animated film for children’s TV.
My life and times have featured on the ‘Real Lives’ program on BBC radio.
About my talks...
Having listened to a number of speakers throughout my life, many of whom were quite traditional, I felt that it would be very entertaining to take this whole concept and turn it upside down.
My presentations include animation, sound, and humorous tales all designed to keep the audience captivated and laughing as they experience the world of The Teller of Tales.
Each Talk Topics is a combination of storytelling and old fashioned stand-up comedy.
Many follow the exploits and adventures of an individual as he deals with life’s ups and downs, whilst others focus on a specific topics looking at the more humorous side of life.
All the presentations are ideal for old and young alike, and each comes with supporting visuals and effects.
Although each presentation is based around Powerpoint, this experience is far more advanced than just point and click. They include sound, animation, special effects and much more.
All equipment is provided.
Unless otherwise stated, my fee is £65 per presentation (including quiz events), plus travel expenses at 30p per mile beyond a 30 mile round trip from my home in Kegworth, Leicestershire.
Example: A venue 30 miles away would be a 60 miles round trip. With the first 30 miles included in the fee, you would pay for only 30 miles at 30p per mile = £9.00.
