Availability for talks

The Covid-19 pandemic made us rethink the way we give and attend talks.  Many groups successfully used Zoom in order to keep going.  Now that we can meet again in person, some groups continue to use Zoom, even if only occasionally, or, for instance, during winter months.  One benefit of Zoom is that groups can book speakers from anywhere in the country (or even from overseas) without having to worry about the speakers’ travel arrangements.

I have decided to cut down on the amount I travel to give talks, see below for details.  Please note, I am based in Sheffield and travel by public transport.

Local groups in Sheffield.  I am happy to travel to your venue during daytime hours all year, and during evenings from April to September if adequate public transport or a lift is available.

Other groups.  I am happy to travel to your venue during daytime hours from April to September, depending on the feasibility of the journey by public transport.  I have decided not to travel beyond Sheffield for evening meetings or during winter months. 

All groups.  I offer my talks by Zoom at any time. See ‘My talks via Zoom’ at the top of this page.

My current fee for Zoom talks is £50.  The fee for in-person talks depends on distance and time taken for travel.
