A discussion of the various motivators for Japanese expansionism in the first half of the 20C. The talk includes biographies of Hideki Tojo, and Isoroku Yamamoto and Tojo's relationship with Emperor Hirohito. Japan's incursion into Korea, Indo China et al and their various battles with the United States of America and their Allies right up until their ultimate surrender are discussed.. I can give the assurance that this talk avoids any images, which might prove upsetting .

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
