Previous paid speaking roles
During latter part of my Police service I was a Police Trainer during which I gained a B A (Hons) degree in Education and a Cert (Ed.). On retirement from the Police Service I joined the merchant navy as a Security Manager on cruise ships. During both careers being responsible for training I have acted various roles as part of a learning process. As a national assessor/ role actor during Police National Examinations at assessment centres I acted in many scenarios including victims of crime, members of the public in different guises, Magistrate, Prosecution and Defence Barrister/ Solicitor during court scenarios , Councillor,Publican and others found in many scenarios in the public domain. I was also involved in writing material for and comparing 2 “end of course Shows” including stand up and comedy sketches at the Police Training College. Whilst at sea I wrote produced and acted in scenarios covering Security and Emergency Procedures. Freelance I have written and delivered training courses and sessions, role acted scripted scenarios specific to company and individual requirements. I have endeavoured to weave both serious messages and comedy into training to demonstrate how dramatic events can become, but also how learning must be fun, engaging but most importantly enjoyable.
