About MY Talks...

My talks are mainly concerned with the secret services, spying and espionage. I offer a menu of talks including my popular ‘Bondmaker Series’ about Ian Fleming the author of the James Bond books. Each talk ‘stands alone’ so no need to hear them all! I can provide a Powerpoint slide show with each talk, and have my own projector but you would need to provide a screen or a blank wall to project on to. Talks can be delivered without Powerpoint for those groups who prefer it this way. All my talks are informative and fun too.
