I took early retirement in 2010, having previously spent a career in IT, Quality Assurance and Process Improvement, latterly with Vodafone UK at their headquarters in Newbury, Berkshire. I have subsequently taken up a second career as a public speaker/performer, and have now delivered over 700 talks/performances.
I am also the Honorary Town Crier for Farnham, Surrey, and a National Trust Volunteer at Sandham Memorial Chapel, where I give talks and monthly poetry readings. I have also delivered several lunch/lectures at Bateman's, the former home of Rudyard Kipling, now owned by the National Trust.
I am willing to give talks/performances to groups in Surrey, Hampshire, West Sussex and South Berkshire.
