Bookings and Fees
Please use the “contact me” tab to make a booking or to ask any questions you may have. You may also phone me on 0161 227 9979 but I am frequently away from home so email is preferred.
Many NADFAS societies book some 18months or so in advance and it sometimes happens that lecturers have to cancel or seek to re-schedule bookings. Whilst I prefer as much notice as possible, I am always willing to stand-in for another lecturer at short notice – subject, of course, to my availability. Societies in and around the Greater Manchester area, are particularly welcome to contact me in ‘emergency’ situations where a lecturer is unable to travel because of adverse weather or other reason.
My fees are very reasonable and I am happy to disclose them to you either over the phone or by email. I normally travel to venues by train using a senior railcard, which helps to keep my fee and expenses easily affordable by most societies. However, some societies have very small memberships and others may be struggling financially and if either is the case, please do not hesitate to ask for a reduced fee.
Where societies have separate morning and afternoon/evening meetings and require the same lecture to be given to each, then my fee will be based on my Special Interest Day rate, which is much less than my fee for 2 single lectures would be. I am also happy to offer a discount where both a lecture and SID are booked together and where a series of lectures is requested.
Where it is necessary for me to have overnight accommodation, I am perfectly happy to stay with one of your members or to be accommodated in accordance with whatever arrangements you normally make.
I hope you have found this website useful.Please contact me to discuss any special arrangements, lectures or special interest days you would like me to prepare for you. All that is contained in this portfolio is intended to help guide you to a lecture title or SID topic appropriate for your programme and I am always delighted to accept the challenge of preparing something completely new and different – so do get in touch!
