About me...

I am a journalist of 40 years experience with many amusing stories about my career as a news/sports/feature writer in regional and local newspapers and on local radio.

About my Talks...

Some of my talks are ‘stand alone’ whilst others are Power Point/Digital presentations in which case I provide the equipment.


My fee is £70 (+ travel costs for round trips of more than 25 miles)

I can deliver my talks as virtual presentations (zoom).

Their Names Will Live On

Based on my book about unsung war heroes from World War One to Afghanistan — stories that have the power to chill you to the bone, bring a tear to a glass eye … and one or two that will make you smile

Signed copies of my book will be available at a special price when I give the talk. Sales of the book have helped raise funds for the Royal British Legion – nearly £2,000 so far

This is a power point presentation
