Introduction for NickRThomas
I am a comedy writer, after dinner speaker and presentation skills coach born (and still based) in Bournemouth on the south coast of England. The material I write can be anything from topical material for national radio shows to wedding speeches and routines for cabaret acts. Plus humorous posts for article sites, of course! When I am not behind a computer screen, facing an audience or observing a trainee speaker, my hobbies include growing organic vegetables and going for long country walks, listening to music (many genres but I am nowhere near as obsessive about this as I was in my younger days) and reading thrillers. My favourite foods tend to be quite simple curries, pasta or traditional British dishes, followed by pretty much any dessert with cream (although I have to limit my dairy intake for health reasons). I am a lifelong teetotaller so my favourite drinks are non-alcoholic, such as black, white or green teas, vanilla milk or really cold mineral water. Basically, if you're the host then I am a very cheap guest!
