Mike at Warloy-Baillon

Between them, Mike and Andy taught for almost 40 years and thus are very experienced in engaging with audiences of all abilities, interest and knowledge! Whilst their presentations are generic each talk is tailored to the specific audience and thus is always relevant and engaging.
