Using a projector to illustrate, I explain the basic principles of examining Questioned Signatures (those which have been challenged or doubted for some reason, perhaps on a Will or other document).

The fascinating study of following the trail of clues within the pen strokes is revealed as I take my listeners on a journey of detection, each Questioned Signature a potential crime scene in itself.

I explain how forgers attempt to pass off signatures as genuine and how handwriting specialists try to uncover their devious tricks!

I use samples from real cases which have been through the public courts or are otherwise in the public domain, and I anonymise aspects of other samples to protect identities.

As a performer on stage (mainly comedy roles in Shakespeare), I enjoy entertaining and bring a light touch to my talks.
