I am a 59 year old public servant who is very active as a leader in the Toastmasters International District 17, Western Australia. I have extensive exeprience in writing on the Internet and editing Newsletters both in print and electronic mediums. Combined with my passion for public speaking is my love of football in general and Bristol Rovers in particular (I write all the match day previews for the official club website). I am also a great collector (and drinker) of Australian wine.
I have recently addressed the International LPNG Conference on behalf of the Australian Agent of the Chinese earth moving equipment company XCMG.
