After a long career as a medical scientist, I like to talk in an entertaining and accessible way about important healthcare issues such as antibiotic resistance, ‘guts’ and inflammation. In have researched the history of the late Georgian period and I talk about the Royal scandal involving the Grand Old Duke of York and his mistresses Mary Anne Clarke. After recently moving to South Wales, I modified a talk about Wilberforce and the slave trade to include the role played by the Welsh industries of coal, copper, slate and wool that fuelled the growth of slavery in the British West Indies. Finally, a talk about the important events and personalities involved in the rise and fall of the British Empire.
About my talks...
For my talk I require a screen and table. I can bring along a projector, laptop and other artefacts as appropriate.
My fee is normally £70 for a 45-60 minute presentation, depending on geographical location, with travelling expenses of 20p/m if over 20 miles from my base.
If you are a small group, please contact me and we can usually reach a compromise.
