Biography:

Based on the Norfolk/Suffolk border near Diss, I have given hundreds of talks since 2010 to audiences ranging from a dozen to over 500 people for all sorts of community organisations including U3A, WI, Rotary, plus local history and church social groups. I can take bookings up to a year ahead or, subject to availability, I can step in at short notice if your speaker cancels unexpectedly. I provide my own technical gear for your convenience - all I ask is that the host group provide a screen. I am happy to travel to any location in Norfolk and Suffolk, as well as North Essex and East Cambridgeshire.

I currently work as an auctioneer at a fortnightly country sale in Hertfordshire, run an online antiques, vintage and collectables business and am a part time tutor teaching short courses for the WEA. Previously I owned and ran an independent bookshop for ten years. Between 2005 and 2014 I interviewed dozens of major celebrity names live on stage - including Julie Walters, Ian Botham, Alan Titchmarsh, Sheila Hancock, Alan Davies - as part of a regular Meet the Author programme I produced at theatres and other venues across Hertfordshire. In my long career I have also chaired and made presentations at numerous conferences, seminars and debates, at national and international level.

I have given a number of online lectures for WEA members using Powerpoint on Zoom, and I also have the capability to do the same on Skype.
