In light of my world experiences and, not to mention, the 20 years I served in prison, I am in a unique position to relate to a lot of issues and to be a public speaker. The young relate to me beause of the seriousness of my past. I understand how to put words together in a way that people accept.
I have already given talks at City University London, numerous schools, colleges and youth centres. I am keen to do more talks in schools, youth centres and other public forums
Prices vary. A Q & A at the end of the talk is included.
Themes can vary, depending on what you personally require.
I look forward to hearing from you guys soon.
P.S. Never forget, the children need us. A role model is whoever is respected for whatever reasons and does the right thing. Not everything needs to be conventional.

This investigative documentary tracks the journey of Gun No. 6: Britain’s most wanted firearm. For over a decade during the early-2000s, when shootings in Britain were at their highest, Gun No. 6 changed hands to be used in 11 cases and 3 murders. The film tracks every shooting made by the gun using police reports, re-enactments and insight from those who witnessed or worked on the crimes.
With no-one who has fired the gun willing to speak, director James Newton brings together six former-perpetrators of gun crime to offer insight into the driving force behind violence in Britain today. Through the journey of Britain’s most deadly, illegal gun, this documentary begins to understand why violence and lethal weapons exist on the streets.
The opening night screening on Friday 12th October will be followed by a director Q&A.Find out more
