Lecturing should be stimulating,
informative and fun for both audiences and the
lecturer, and I’m determined that this is the case
whenever I give a talk. Most people lead full lives
and no lecturer enjoys a right to an audience. It is
his or her job to ensure that by the end of a talk,
nobody in the room regrets having abandoned a comfy
chair in favour of a village hall, or wherever.
With this in mind, my talks tend to be fairly spontaneous.
Rejecting the use of notes, I prefer to ad lib by taking
cues from the screen and audience reactions.

post-Medieval glassmaking, and would be pleased to create
new talks for specific occasions. For details of the
