1930S | Biographical

FDR may have been America's greatest President; he was certainly the longest serving and had to overcome partial paralysis which dogged him throughout his 3.5 terms in office. He became President in 1932 and his policies turned around America's greatest recession and put millions of people back into gainful employment. His benevolence towards Great Britain helped us to survive in WW2 until the Americans themselves declared war on the Axis powers and he served until Germany was more or less defeated, at the time of his death.

FDR oversaw the birth of the Atomic bomb which, undoubtedly saved millions of lives in the war against Japan.

He was a truly courageous and far sighted statesman with a colourful personal life.

About Nigel

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
