WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE.
You'll find details here about the range of interesting historic talks I have to offer - several based on my books - in addition to my extensive experience as an auctioneer, interviewer, chairperson and facilitator. Based in East Anglia, I am free for bookings daytimes, evenings or weeekends and can usually stand in at very short notice if your speaker cancels.
Below are some of the groups who have booked me to talk to their members in the last six years - over two thirds of those booked me for return visits to give other talks in my repertoire.
As you can see I am happy to be booked by all sorts of community, church, WI, Local History and U3A societies and clubs. I also get asked to visit sheltered accomodation and residential homes by their management companies to give talks to residents.

"Need an interesting talk given by an accomplished speaker? Then consider Stephen Poulter as your next choice. The Lea Valley U3A Heritage Group have enjoyed topics including Historic Hoddesdon, Dick Turpin and the Rise and Fall of Theobalds Palace.
Each one hour talk is accompanied by a Powerpoint presentation and Stephen's professional delivery."
Speaker Secretary, Lea Valley U3A Heritage Group
"We've had a number of talks and presentations from Stephen which have all been highly infomrative and entertaining. Stephen's voice is clear and he is a pleasure to listen to. And we will definitely be booking him again."
Speaker Secretary, Broxbourne Church Women's Group
"Stephen has spoken to our group on four occasions now and all the talks have been very well received. There were many positive comments and good attendance on all occasions. Stephen is very articulate and his research on the subjects is excellent. His presentation and visuals are very well thought out. We are looking forward to welcoming him again.
