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: when technical or scientific jargon is included, I always translate this into everyday language! You will notice that most of my talks last a little longer than usual, this is because they include both the full background story, and all the detail that’s so important in helping history to ‘come alive’. However if your timescale is restricted, I can also offer shorter condensed versions – see individual talks below for details. All the talks are fully illustrated by PowerPoint slides. I have my own laptop and projector, and only require a screen or other projection surface.
I am new to the Public Speakers Corner website, so for any booking taken during 2019 (including any bookings for next year), I will charge £50 per talk, plus 45p per mile expenses, if I have to travel more than 20 miles from Evesham. For bookings taken during 2020, the charge will rise to £75, plus travel as above. I will 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
