Location Oxford and Stow on the Wold. City and Cotswolds!
I’m Rob Walters and I live in central Oxford where I am a qualified guide and a writer,
and also on the edge of Stow-on-the-Wold where I keep chickens and grow stuff. My
main career was in telecommunications and that’s where I began writing books and
presenting. Nowadays most of my writing centres on Oxford the city, its university
and colleges, although I have also wandered gaily off into fiction, biography and
I give talks in person or over Zoom on a variety of topics, often based on my writing
or guiding: my most popular ones just now are based on the story of the Oxford English
Dictionary and on the Pubs of Oxford. I make videos and have my own YouTube channel
called Rob’s Oxford so you can sample my approach to presentation if you wish - you
can get there through my website homepage at www.robsbookshop.com.
About my talks Talks are normally given with PowerPoint so I will need a projector
and screen. I can also deliver all talks via Zoom. Some talks can be delivered ‘stand
alone’. Please enquire.
Fee details Fee for Zoom delivery is £50.
If travelling then fee is £65 plus travelling expenses at 35p per mile.
