About The Speaker...
I am a former BBC Radio Leicester presenter and producer. My own show was largely a magazine programme specialising in the arts, theatre, local history and gardening! I also presented news programmes and phone-in programmes.
Before that I was a Deputy Headteacher in a Leicestershire comprehensive school. My degree was in history where I specialised particularly in Medieval history at York University.
I am also currently a Deputy Lieutenant of Leicestershire where, filling in for the Lord Lieutenant, I may be called upon to represent HM The King at certain events.
I am also Honorary President of a local Amateur Theatre Company and have written and produced shows which have been performed at Leicester’s Curve Theatre.
About Their Talks...
I can offer 3 or 4 specific talks.
They come with pictures, PowerPoint presentation and some sound clips depending on equipment available.
My style is light hearted and friendly but not trivial or too frivolous.
1. “Richard III – the Man and the Mystery.”
2. “100 Years of Auntie”
3. “My 25 Years at the BBC”
4. “The Lieutenancy and the Honours System”
