My work history is 29 years a police officer, followed by 4 years as a manager for Autoglass, followed by 10 and a half 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 any more, and I could afford to do so. I have been giving the talks and presentations for several years now, and my bookings virtually all come from word of mouth recommendations, or because the booker has seen me “perform” somewhere. I became the Town Crier of Thetford in March 2013, and thoroughly enjoy it. I do several Council events such as Mayor Making, the Mayor’s Ball, the Christmas lights switch on and so forth. I also do private work such as shop openings, wake-up calls to brides. I have entered a few Town Crier Competitions, including the World Tournament in 2014. 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.
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.
