As an experienced public speaker I am in regular demand from local societies, PROBUS groups, arts centres and Women’s Institutes amongst others. My PhD is in history: I was an Ofsted inspector for 19 years and also inspected schools in Abu Dhabi. I have continued historical research throughout my life and I have been an invited speaker at conferences organised by the Imperial War Museum.
About my talks...
I can give all of my talks as remote presentations using Zoom.
I live in Chichester, West Sussex and for ‘in attendance’ presentations I will travel up to 30 miles, but regret I do not take evening bookings except within the Portsmouth/Chichester area.
All my talks are illustrated by PowerPoint photographs. I have my own projector though I am also happy to bring talks on a memory stick and use an installed system. Audiences need to provide a screen or pale wall for projection. I have done it onto a brick wall with a noticeboard in the middle but it did affect the quality somewhat!
My fee is currently £80. I charge 50p a mile travel expenses (obviously this isn’t needed for a Zoom presentation!)
