Born in Lincoln where I lived for the first 25 years. I am a Freeman of the City of Lincoln. I worked for I.C.I. all my working life in far flung places ….Cambridge, Bristol before settling in Nottingham in 1979. I’m married with 2 children, 5 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
Rotarian since 1980 …. Past President Carlton (Nottingham) Rotary Club on two occasions 1992/3 and again 2016/17
Regional Finalist on ITV’s ‘Pride of Britain Awards 2019’ in the Fundraiser of the Year category
About my talks...
I have two versions of my talks………one being a ’Stand Alone’ presentation where space is limited or the room is an awkward shape…and the second being a Power Point presentation and I provide my own laptop and projector. I also have the talk on a memory stick should the venue have the required presentation system.
I have given these humorous presentations to almost 500 organisations during the past 6 years ( W.I. Clubs, Rotary Clubs, Probus Clubs, & U3A) within a radius of 50 miles from my home in Burton Joyce, Nottingham including Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and South Yorkshire.
AND NOW..by the magic of ZOOM……….I can provide a virtual presentation anywhere in the British Isles
If you’ve been let down at the last minute – give me a ring, I can often step in
I take no fee or expenses, but if you consider it to be worthy of a donation, my chosen charity is Asthma UK. This presentation makes an ideal opportunity to invite partners and prospective members to attend.
I’m often available at short notice….. so it is worth giving me a ring if you find yourself without a speaker.
