I have a number of different lectures/presentations. I can deliver these in any length from 20 to 60 minutes. I am an accomplished presenter who is conversant with powerpoint presentations. I am equally at home presenting with no reliance on technology.
Current titles are:
My Life in Prison – Governor, an impossible job.
My Life in Prison – It’s no fun being a prisoner.
The sometimes secret history of an English Prison in Essex - Its surprising connections.
The Real Porridge – A look back at that fabulous TV series and why it is still relevant today.
