If you would like me to speak at your event please get in touch. For speaking engagements I simply ask for my travel costs to be covered, and a cheap-yet-decent hotel room if an overnight stay is required. I also require amplification when speaking for larger audiences, and a supply of hot tea/coffee before and during a talk (I cannot talk for long periods of time without losing my voice due to damage to my throat caused during surgery).
I often act as an adviser for TV producers, journalists, authors, and other researchers. If you have a question or would like some advice about the paranormal then feel free to drop me a line and I’ll be happy to offer my opinion. If I can’t I’ll be sure to point you in the right direction.
