Forthcoming Talks

By video conferencing

Date Title Notes
21st July 2020 Cecilia and Louisa Club member Alan Grant will tell the story of two remarkable professional ladies and their struggle for acceptance in late Victorian/Edwardian England.
4th August 2020 Loxodonta Africana: the Lozenge-toothed African Club member Richard Chaplin will talk about the evolution, physiology and behaviour of the world’s largest land mammal, copiously illustrated with his own photos from East and Southern Africa. He will draw on his own experience and extensive reading on the subject.
18th August 2020 Small is Beautiful: my Relentless Descent down the UK Corporate Ladder Having been intimidated by the encyclopaedic knowledge of other Probus members, Paul Davies was advised by one member to make his first talk about himself and what he had done in the past. The talk will include some (hopefully) interesting and amusing stories as Paul has travelled from multinational corporations down to one man band microbusinesses.
