1990 — Present (19 years)

Throughout my working career I have had a love of giving humourous, serious, political, social and educational speeches to teach and entertain an audience. I have been a member of the ASC throughout this time which has given my many speaking opportunites, not only for enjoyment but also in competition. As well as this I have held many positions within the club working to expand its borders, these include local-area President and for one year club President. I love my time with the ASC and it continues to be an important part of my working and social career.

Ian holds National training qualifications, degrees, management qualifications and vocational certificates. Perhaps more relevant is that he speaks in competition – walking the walk so to speak. In 2004 Ian won the UK National Championship for Impromptu speaking, in 2005 the Southern Area Final for Prepared Speaking and in 2008 the Southern Area once more for Impromptu.
