Sunday Bandstand 31 July 2022

Hello Everyone - it is good to be back. I have been on the Sky Princess cruise ship for two weeks as a guest speaker. The trip was to the Baltic and several stops during the cruise. I had six PowerPoint presentations to deliver, no brass bands on this trip. These went down well judging from the feedback I received. I met lots of smashing people from many parts of the world. I am certainly looking forward to the possibility of cruising with the company again sometime in the future. 

Enjoy the show.
