Born in Lincoln where I lived for the first 25 years. I am a Freeman of the City of Lincoln. I worked for I.C.I. all my working life in far flung places ….Cambridge, Bristol before settling in Nottingham in 1979. I’m married with 2 children, 5 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.

About my talks...
I have two versions of my talks………one being a ’Stand Alone’ presentation where space is limited or the room is an awkward shape…and the second being a Power Point presentation and I provide my own laptop and projector. I also have the talk on a memory stick should the venue have the required presentation system.
I have given these humorous presentations to over 750 organisations during the past 10 years ( W.I. Clubs, Rotary Clubs, Probus Clubs, & U3A) within a radius of 50 miles from my home in Burton Joyce, Nottingham including Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and South Yorkshire.
AND NOW..by the magic of ZOOM……….I can provide a virtual presentation anywhere in the British Isles
If you’ve been let down at the last minute – give me a ring, I can often step in
I take no fee or expenses, but if you consider it to be worthy of a donation, my chosen charity is Asthma & Lung UK. This presentation makes an ideal opportunity to invite partners and prospective members to attend.
I’m often available at short notice….. so it is worth giving me a ring if you find yourself without a speaker.
