Notes on Talks and Presentations
All topics are covered with enthusiasm, knowledge, quality images and above all seeking to engage with the particular audience. Time for dialogue and questions is always allowed.
Fees vary according to the group size and the length of presentation required. Mileage is charged to and from my home in Lincoln.
New talks are added to the list as they become available. Please call for details.
All talks can be adapted to the needs of your group, either with a break or as a single continuous presentation.
All topics are in PowerPoint presentation format with occasional video clips and running dialogue.
On odd occasions two topics have been presented with a midway break.
Short notice bookings are acceptable subject to availability, please give me a call.
"On behalf of the members of the West Burton Retired Employees Association, may I thank you for presenting such a brilliantly illustrated talk on the wildlife we hitherto might have totally overlooked in the garden.
It was a great relief to learn that untidy woodpiles, overgrown hedges and weeds were not something to be ashamed of.
Your amazing photos left us in awe of the creatures lurking in our own backyards, and I'm sure some of us will be leaving fewer stones unturned from now on, even though the chances of catching hitching snails on toads, seem impossibly long odds again.
Many thanks once again for a wonderful presentation"
