Biography:

I have been giving talks, mainly to Probus clubs but also to U3A, National Trust etc, for more than 4 years and I now have 13, varied, talks to present. I have been awarded a Speaker Rosette by the Probus Speaker Register of Gloucs. which means that at least three clubs have spoken highly of my presentations.

I spent the majority of my working life in Sales and Marketing and was a director of a £30mn engineering company in Cheltenham, close to my current residence. I spent much of the last few years until I retired presenting to large groups of Architects and Consulting Engineers, worldwide. (Fosters, Ove Arup etc). I taught myself how to create presentations in Powerpoint during this period.

Since I retired in 2010, I have created 16, 60 minute powerpoint presentations. I am enjoying expanding my audience through Speakernet.

I always try to mix humour into my talks, wherever relevant

I charge £40 for a talk plus £0.15 per mile for expenses, and am willing to travel up to 100 miles from GL19 . All of my fees, less expenses go to various charities
