My public speaking started in 1980, when Yorkshire Water needed someone in a hurry. I’ve spoken for WaterAid since 1981 and whilst these are free, they do ask for donations and speaker mileage please. My list of talks has been steadily added to over many years, with something for every taste. I live in Halifax, West Yorkshire; well placed for the motorway network and regularly travel to all of Yorkshire, Lancashire and Derbyshire.
About my Talks...
All of my presentations, except ‘Word Play’, are illustrated with slides and mostly run for about 1 hour, but can be shortened by arrangement.
Most presentations can be done virtually.
For presentations at a venue, blackout is preferred and I have all of my own equipment.
My basic fee is £40, which covers 8 miles from home. Mileage is .30p/mile beyond that.
Virtual talks are all £35. Water Aid talks for schools are free. A portion of my fee is donated to St. Gemma’s Hospice, Leeds.
