Biography:

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by military history and technology, and like any enthusiast, I’ve always wanted to share my passion with the people around me. Following a career in the IT industry, I now have the opportunity to pass on some of the amazing facts and stories I’ve come upon over the years. As you will discover when you book one of my talks, military history is definitely NOT just for military history fans!

My talks are designed to appeal to men and women from every walk of life. A little technical jargon is sometimes unavoidable, but don’t worry, I always translate this into everyday language! I am always keen to take questions afterwards.

All my talks last a little over an hour. If you are interested in a particular talk, but require more information, or would like to discuss other options to suit your requirements, then please do contact me.

All the talks are illustrated with PowerPoint slides. I have my own projector and screen, but I’ll happily use your equipment if it’s already in place. If a face-to-face meeting is impossible or impractical, I can deliver all my talks to you online, using Zoom or any other preferred platform.

FEES: For club talks, my usual fee is £50. For a round trip of up to 50 miles, there is no charge for travel. For distances over 50 miles, I will charge travel expenses at 45p a mile. If you are a very small club, or this charge is more than you can afford, then please do contact me: I would rather meet you somewhere in the middle, than not give the talk at all! For public appearances, my rates are negotiable.
