About The Speaker...
My professional career has included 35+ years within the military and law enforcement sectors, and more recently has involved working with military veterans charities. During my professional career, I became heavily involved within the charity sector, as both a frontline volunteer and trustee with significant national bodies, leading to the award of an MBE for service to charity in 2019.
I have been a public speaker for well over 10-years and have delivered many hundreds of enrichment lectures and after dinner/luncheon talks to groups and organisations all around the UK and overseas.
I have had the pleasure of speaking at national conferences, Rotary Clubs and a variety of other events in such far flung locations as, Germany, Netherlands, USA and in all corners of the United Kingdom. Perhaps a speaking highlight was addressing the United Nations Public Service Forum at The Hague in 2017, but I equally enjoy sharing my presentations with community groups of all sizes.
Aside from my work and family commitments, I am the host of a successful YouTube channel called ‘The Chap’s Guide’ (https://www.youtube.com/c/TheChapsGuide), which provides lifestyle mentoring advice on the subjects of men’s style, self-development and personal grooming for men of all ages.
About Their Talks...
My talks last approximately 45 minutes, but can easily be adjusted (longer or shorter) as to the specific needs of the client group. All my talks are illustrated via slides and feature video clips with sound content and I can either provide my own projector/speakers/etc. or make use of the equipment provided at the client venue.
My repertoire of presentations are best described as enrichment lectures and as such, they are ideally suited for mixed audiences of all ages and offer engaging and stimulating subjects, that are perfect for after dinner/luncheon meetings, or other gatherings that seek to offer a high-energy performance that will be engrossing for the audience.
Please feel free to drop me a line, or give me a call directly to discuss the best presentation/talk to suit your group. I am happy to deliver any of my sessions via Zoom/Teams if requested.
My fee is determined by the type of event and distance travelled from my home-base in North Somerset. My typical fee for a community group would begin at £75 – £250 dependent on location and requirements of the presentation.
Please feel free to get in touch if your event falls outside of the above parameters if your have a special requirement – I am always prepared to negotiate and I may be able to assist with very short notice presentations if free.
I am happy to travel throughout the UK, however this would be subject to additional travel costs for fuel and accomodation and other expenses as appropriate to the situation
