Biography:

For many years Malcolm worked for the MoD schools (teacher, headteacher, advisory) and was fortunate to live and work in several interesting parts of the world. Most of his talks are inspired by his time in Cyprus and Germany. In 1974, as a young teacher in Cyprus, he experienced the military coup and subsequent Turkish invasion and, when living in Germany, saw the events of November 1989 as the Berlin Wall came down. He currently lives near York but between March and July he is enjoying himself in Cyprus and unavailable to give presentations......Covid Update - Malcolm is staying in the UK and not travelling to Cyprus this year!!

Malcolm is happy to travel to most areas of the country but within a 100 mile radius of York seems like a sensible idea. However, if you are desperate for one of his presentations he can always make an exception!

Malcolm's presentations use his own laptop and data projector......however a screen needs to be provided.

Feedback is always positive and groups often rebook immediately.

Evaluations following recent presentations:

"What can I say? We always give our speakers a mark out of ten but yours was the first to score 11!!! It really was excellent. You got all three aspects so right. Your research was impeccable; the visual presentation the best we have seen but most of all, you were able to put it over so well. So thank you, very well done indeed.".......R. S. - Collingham Retired Mens Forum.

"I thoroughly enjoyed your last talk to the Forum on “The RAF at 100 Years“ ; I have also received a large number of complimentary comments from members."......R. L. - Harrogate Mens Forum.

"Thank you both for your very pleasant company at lunch this Wednesday , we really enjoyed the occasion . Needless to say, we have had much complimentary feedback from your talk"......M.B. - Ryedale RAFA Branch.

“You did a talk for our club last October on the topic of York’s Baedeker Raid and the feedback I had from the members was very positive and suggesting I invite you to return.”……D.C – Derwent Probus Club.

“Once again on behalf of myself and this morning's audience, I would like to thank you for such a wonderful presentation; I know everyone present was really captivated by your talk.” ……K.M – Ryedale U3A.

Most presentations last approximately 50mins (+/-5) but can be modified as required.

The fee for each standard length presentation is £40 plus modest travel expenses (20p per mile). A number of presentations (indicated) require a double session with an interval and are priced at £55 plus travel expenses.
