About Nigel Thompson

I spent the majority of my working life in Sales and Marketing and was a director of a £30mn engineering company in Cheltenham, near to where I currently reside. 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 a number of 60 minute Powerpoint presentations which I have given to many local Probus groups, various societies etdc. I now wish to expand my audience through Speakernet.

I always mix humour into my talks, wherever relevant

All of my fees, less expenses go to the Macmillan Nurses
