About Chris O'Grady

Since taking early retirement aged 54 in 2014 I have developed a second career providing talks to various groups such as Women's Institutes, Probus, Retirement Clubs etc.

My professional life was spent making presentations to a wide range of groups. Now I am able to use the skills developed when working to enhance my talks about topics that are very close to my heart.

After giving a talk the following words have been used to describe my presentations.

"Fascinating", "extremely interesting and witty", "your talk must be unique: not only that but you speak very naturally" "You are such a positive and inspiring person"
