I’ve recently retired from a career in the IT industry, and have had a lifelong interest in military history and technology, across many historical eras and parts of the globe. I’ve always wanted to share my passion with those around me, and have given informal talks on military subjects, for a number of years: so I suppose I must be one of those crazy people who actually loves public speaking! Now I’m eager to expand my audience, and share all these amazing stories with local clubs and societies
About my Talks...
All my talks are designed for non-specialist audiences and are intended to appeal to men and women from every walk of life: where technical jargon is included, I always do my best to translate this into everyday language. Most of the talks are available in full-length and condensed versions. Naturally, I always encourage my customers to choose the full length versions, which include the full background story AND all the detail that makes the history of technology so fascinating – see individual talks for more information on this point. All my talks are fully illustrated by PowerPoint slides. I have my own laptop and projection equipment, and only require a screen or other projection surface.
I am new to the Public Speakers Corner website and so, during 2019 only, I will charge £50 per talk, plus 45p per mile travel expenses, if more than 20 miles from Evesham. For bookings taken during 2020, the charge will rise to £80, plus travel as indicated. Although normally operating within a 50 mile radius, I would be very happy to negotiate a fee for talks anywhere in the UK, on an ad hoc basis.
I am usually available at short notice, should you have an urgent requirement for a speaker
