I’m currently a self-employed funeral celebrant but I’ve been fortunate to have had many other amazing jobs; as a radio journalist, a published author, a lecturer, a hypnotherapist, an events organiser, a public relations consultant and, for a few halcyon but back-breaking days in my early twenties, a grape-picker.
I’ve spent much of my working life in front of an audience of one kind or another, sharing my enthusiasms and knowledge.
Take your pick from several talks, some of which are based on my current work, others on my interest in history.
About my talks...
I normally talk for up to an hour (including questions) but I’m happy to adapt according to your group.
All talks have accompanying images. They are essential for ‘The Walls Have Tongues – Graffiti in Medieval Churches’. I prefer to show images for my other talks but, if you have no facilities for a presentation, ‘There’s a Whole World Out There’ is the best talk to choose. I bring my own laptop and projector if you could provide a screen or blank wall.
If you need someone at short notice – I’ll always do my best to help.
My fee is £70.00 for all talks except ‘Why Aren’t You Listening’. Once more than 15 miles from my home postcode, I charge an additional 30p per mile travel.
I’m happy to travel, particularly if you happen to be somewhere that gives me a good excuse to spend time in a part of the country I’ve never visited before!
