Having lived for three years in the tropical Solomon Islands in the South Pacific, I try to provide an interesting and amusing insight into the realities of everyday life as an expatriate working in this beautiful and very remote location. The talk covers some of the region’s history and problems as well as my work helping to develop the economy of this country with associated travels to remote tropical islands with dense rain-forests, coral reefs, coconut palm fringed snow white beaches, sharks and active volcanoes. This talk reflects my experiences in this remote and rarely visited country and is illustrated using my own photographs in a PowerPoint presentation.Views: 318 | Enquiries: 0
As an independent development consultant, I worked in 14 different developing countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Oceania including spending over nine years on the Old Silk Road in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. My last long term assignment was as adviser to the Minister of Development, Planning and Aid Coordination in the Solomon Islands.
My talks reflect my experiences in these very remote and rarely visited countries. Each is illustrated using my own photographs in a PowerPoint presentation.
I am based in South Cheshire and am willing to travel reasonable distances in the North West and West Midland areas.
