I live near Oakham in Rutland and have retired. I have a B. Sc. Hons.(1st class) from Manchester University. My hobbies are numerous, from playing the vibraphone and piano accordion to learning and speaking several languages. Twice a week, I attend tai’ chi classes. My children and grandchildren keep me entertained and I enjoy helping them with their physics and languages.
About my Talks...
My talks, which I’ve been giving intermittently for the last ten years are on three totally diverse topics. All are PowerPoint with my own photographs supplemented by various (heavily edited by me) music in the background where appropriate. I do not use any notes.
Each talk lasts approximately 50-55 minutes. I bring my own laptop but need an up-to-date digital projector (compatible with Apple and recent high-powered Dell laptops) to be set up for me, as well as a sound system.
I charge £80 for each Talk, plus reasonable travel expenses/mileage costs, dependent on the length of time required to reach the venue and the costs incurred on getting there and back.
