My work history is 29 years a police officer, followed by 4 years as a manager for Autoglass, then by 101/2 years as a prison officer and ending with 3 years in a secondary school as an Inclusion Manager (dealing with all things behavioural). I stopped work in November 2013 because I was not enjoying it anymore, and I could afford to do so. I have been giving the talks and presentations for over 12 years now, and my bookings virtually all come from word of mouth recommendations, or because the booker has seen me “perform” somewhere. I am the Town Crier of Watton and love every minute. I carry out all the civic functions, as well as private work such as shop and business openings, wake-up calls to brides, special occasions such as major birthdays or anniversaries. I do enter some Town Crier Competitions, including the World Tournament in 2014. I have even won some, notable in Ely and came second in the Ancient and Honourable Guild of Town Criers’ British Championships in 2019. I am a wedding Toastmaster and I run my own murder mystery business. I love history, as might be noticed from the subjects of my talks.
About my talks ...
Some of the talks are Power Point presentations, otherwise I wear appropriate costume – see each talk for precise information.
The cost for any of the above presentations is £45, plus travelling costs. I don’t charge the current rate of 45p per mile, I work out what my car does per gallon, so it is much cheaper. I will give you the total cost (fee + travel) when you contact me so there are no nasty surprises.
I am happy to travel anywhere to deliver a presentation, but the further you are away from East Anglia, the more the travel cost will be.
If a speaker lets your organisation down, it is always worth giving me a call, because I am happy to help at short notice if I can.
