Tim Wander - Lecture Titles

Tim is pleased to lecture and talk to societies, schools and institutions about the early days of wireless.

Talks are typically 60 to 80 minutes - somewhat informal and questions are always encouraged!

Tim has lectured to hundreds of different groups, from school children to U3A, University lecturers to historians. His talks are always targeted at the level and interest of the group on the day - from social history to specialist engineering societies.

All talks are accompanied with a PowerPoint presentation - often with rare or unseen images from Tim's collection.
