About me...

I am a retired Police Inspector (Dorset Police) and very proud of the fact that I am the 4th successive generation of Police Officers in my family. I have had plenty of experience in Public Speaking as a Senior officer and when I retired my services in retirement were sought after for presentations initially on Policing – the Past & Future. Several groups invited me to return for a second presentation – the sequel.
My hobbies include Genealogy, History and Mysteries and my knowledge garnered over many years has meant that I have been able to create talks around my favourite subjects as an alternative to my ‘policing’ talk.

About my Talks...

All presentations are appropriate for a diverse audience of single or mixed genders. They can be tailored and varied to suit your club’s requirements, generally I talk between one hour and about 2 hours.


Cost of presentations with Q & A – £50.
Length and content of the presentation can be tailored to suit the audience.  I cater for the Dorset & West Hampshire area.  No travel costs for presentations within the BH postode area or 15 mile radius there of.
A small travel charge maybe incurred outside of this general area depending on when & where.

NIKOLA TESLA - The Maverick Hungarian

The man who Electrified the World. Genius? AC Current, Death Rays, Lasers, Wireless, Anti Gravity, Hydro power, UFO’s etc! When Einstein was asked what it was like to be the Smartest Man in the world? He replied ‘I don’t know, you will have to ask Nikola Tesla’

BIGFOOT - Fact or Fiction?

Bigfoot (otherwise known as Sasquatch) is a Cryptic large half man, half ape creature reportedly roaming the forests, mountains and uninhabited wilderness of North America.
Evidence suggests that these creatures exists, supported by Native American folklore stretching back long before the arrival of Europeans in the Americas.
Denied by science, but witnessed by countless people, video footage, DNA and other supporting evidence. Make your mind up.

POLICING - Past & Future

A History of Policing Locally & Nationally, and what does the future of Policing hold?


Adolf Hitler, Führer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945.
He was reported by German media to have killed himself by gunshot on 30 April 1945 in his Führerbunker in Berlin. With no body ever found, and reported sightings into the late 1950’s in South America, is it possible he survived? The evidence suggests he did, before his demise in 1962.


November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated as he rode in a motorcade through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas, Texas.
But who shot him? Oswald?, The Man on the Grassy Knoll? Was it 3, 4 or 10 shots? The Magic Bullet! What did LBJ have to gain? Was George H Bush involved? Who was the Umbrella Man? History may not be what they tell you! Sideways

SPEEDWAY - Racing Sideways

Motorcycle Speedway. 4 Riders on bikes that do 0-60 mph in less than 3 seconds on a loose surface, no brakes and slide sideways to make the corners. Thrills, Spills and for some Glory. The smell of Castrol R Oil and Methanol. Speedway – at one time the second most popular attended spectator sport in the UK. Learn about the history, the bikes, the adrenalin fuelled meetings and what happens before, during and after race day – from a riders perspective.


Friday 13th October 1307 and King Phillip attacked the Knights Templars. Where did their fleet sail just before, what did they carry and where did they go? Evidence suggests that from the 1200’s the Templars were resident in the North Americas, over 200 years before Columbus.
