About Robert W Wood D.Hp...
For many years I worked for one of the largest wholesalers in Europe, a company selling fossils, mineral and semi-precious gemstones into the trade including schools, colleges, universities and visitor centers. I was also involved with the company’s retail division’, looking after their shops in and around the Lake District. Many have visited The ‘Rockshop’ in Ambleside near Windermere. I then went on to write books and guides based mainly on the mysteries surrounding gemstones and crystals (over 150,000 are in print)
About my talks...
My talks last up to an hour, and there are four of them, I don’t ask for a fee because I carry a few inexpensive gifts and any sales help to contribute to the cost of the visit. Since retiring I am available during the day as well as evenings.
There is no fee
I travel from coast to coast so I am happy to present my talks in Yorkshire, Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire and Merseyside. Although there is no fee, I do ask for modest travel expenses of between £20 and £40 depending on distance travelled. I don’t ask for travel costs when groups are very small.
