About the speaker...
Robert Mee has been giving local history presentations since 2005. Whilst his audiences are primarily local history groups, he has spoken at many other venues, including Rotary, Probus, W.I., U3A and charity events. Robert’s talks are predominantly about the area where he has lived, but recently he has started to branch out into the wider county. Whilst he does have an academic background, his talks are firmly targeted towards a non-academic audience. He is as comfortable with 200 people listening to him as he is with 10, and, wherever possible, he aims for his talks to be entertaining as well as informative
About his talks...
The presentations are all fully illustrated (Powerpoint or equivalent), and all equipment is brought by him (though if the venue is able to supply a screen/blank wall, it saves a lot of hassle!). The talks normally last from 50 to 75 minutes, but can be adjusted to suit your needs. Robert is often available for short-notice events, if, for example, a speaker cancels.
Fees are £50, plus expenses if more than 40 miles from home in West Hallam, Derbyshire. He is prepared to travel anywhere, but normally speaks in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and north Leicestershire.
