About my talks...
I cover most of the geographical area of North Staffordshire as well as numerous themes. The following titles are not a comprehensive list so please contact me if you are interested in a particular area or theme
My presentations are all powerpoint.
I can bring a projector stand and projector screen, though it is far more convenient for all concerned if the venue has either a screen or a whitewashed wall in situ.
My starting figure is presently £40 for a 45-60 minute presentation, depending on geographical distance. I require transport from my address in Newcastle-under-Lyme to the venue and transport back.
Areas I am prepared to travel: North Staffordshire. Cheshire negotiable.
